A welterweight division affair is reportedly headlining next month’s UFC Fight Night Gdansk event as #6 Donald Cerrone is in action against Darren Till.
Jim Edwards of MMA Uno first reported the bout.
Cerrone (32-9-0-1NC) enters the fight riding a two bout losing streak, with those losses coming to the duo of Robbie Lawler and Jorge Masvidal. Cerrone has won two of the previous three UFC main events he competed in, defeating Jim Miller at UFC Fight Night 45 and Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 83. Cerrone has only seen one of his six fights go the distance since moving up to the welterweight division, with his fight against Robbie Lawler at UFC 214 going all three rounds.
Till (15-0-1) has won three of four under the UFC banner, defeating Wendell De Oliveira Marques, Jessin Ayari and Bojan Velickovic, while fighting Nicolas Dalby to a no contest at UFC Fight Night 76. Till is also a former MMA Sanda Combat Welterweight Champion, but he gave up the title when he signed with the UFC in 2015. Till is going to be headlining his first UFC event against Cerrone and it is the first MMA event of any kind he headlined in over two years.
UFC Fight Night Gdansk takes place on Saturday, October 21 from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland with Donald Cerrone and Darren Till headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
