Till (18-4-1 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since July of 2020, where he had suffered a unanimous decision loss to former middleweight kingpin Robert Whittaker. Prior to that setback, the Liverpool native was coming off a split-decision win over Kevlin Gastelum in his 185lbs debut.

Meanwhile, Derek Brunson (23-7 MMA) had entered today’s main event sporting a four-fight winning streak, his latest being a unanimous decision victory over Kevin Holland. The 37-year-old has gone undefeated since November of 2018, this after he was TKO’d by reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
