Donald Cerrone returns to the Octagon for his third fight this year as he is set to take on rising star Darren Till in the main event of UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland.
“Cowboy” is riding the first two-fight winning streak of his professional MMA career after fighting two world-class opponents. In January, Cerrone lost for the first time since moving up to the welterweight division to current number 4 ranked UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal. Cerrone’s next matchup in July would not get any easier with falling short in a unanimous decision loss to former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, who is currently the number 1 ranked 170-pound contender.
Darren Till will get his chance to continue his unbeaten record against the biggest name he has fought in his career. Till is 15-0 with one draw and made his UFC debut in 2015 where he and Nicolas Dalby fought to a draw. Till has since picked up two wins in the UFC taking unanimous decision victories over Jessin Ayari and Bojan Velickovic.
