Darren Till wants to help out Khamzat Chimaev.
Chimaev (9-0) has been a phoenix-like prospect since emerging in the UFC, winning three-consecutive fights across two weight divisions in two months. Chimaev is now in search of a top 15 opponent but people keep turning him down. Enter sixth-ranked middleweight Till (18-3-1). "The Gorrila" tweeted on Saturday, telling Chimaev he would gladly fight him after dispatching of Jack Hermanson (no. 4) in their December 5 headliner.
Till vs. Chimaev would be a huge coup for the latter. If Till beats Hermansson, he is poised for a title shot against UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya with only Jared Cannonier in between them.
