Everything started between the two when Whittaker issued a challenge to Till for a bout in Till’s native London.
“That’s the fight I’m currently interested in (against Till),” Whittaker told The Daily Telegraph. “Plus I’ve never been to Europe before, so what better reason to go?”
Till, who just made a successful UFC Middleweight Division debut with a unanimous decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244, would accept Whittaker’s challenge through Twitter:
I’m ready to fight now to be honest.— Darren Till (@darrentill2) November 14, 2019
Fuck injuries, fuck time off, fuck it all.
When are you ready @robwhittakermma ? Need to know basis...
There is no word at this time as to when the UFC is returning to London, as no date for an event there has been announced for 2020 at this time.
