This weekend, the UFC goes across the pond to Liverpool and has a blockbuster main event. It pits rising superstar Darren Till and former title challenger Stephen Thompson. 

Darren Till has the tools to be the next big UFC star the organization desperately needs. He finishes fights, he’s hungry to learn, and he wants the top guys. With his Muay Thai background, he is well versed and aggressive standing up and look for him to continue this as it has worked against “Wonderboy” in the past. 

Stephen Thompson fought for the belt for a reason. Once thought of as the best striker in MMA, you can see the intrigue in this matchup. His karate background has led him to keeping his opponents at distance with a wide array of kicks. He needs to keep Till at distance and pick him apart before striking a knockout blow, or the young star is going to put him down. This is a good one, ladies and gents.
