UFC Fight Night #147 | Who will fight Darren Till in the headline London UFC event?


London, United Kingdom
26 March 2019

Gymshark athlete Darren Till just took to Instagram to tease MMA fans everywhere with a slightly cryptic sequence of Instagram posts. Three separate images with the below captions leave us thinking Darren Till has the UFC headline fight in London this March.

But who will he fight? Our odds are on Colby Covington...

Following Colby Covington being pulled out of his title shot against welterweight champion Tyron Woodley back in March 2018 with little explanation from the UFC, Covington has been waiting to see what comes next for him.

Having already mentioned his will to take on Darren Till in the octagon, rumours soon emerged of a possible London headline fight between the two Welterweights in London.

It may not be the championship fight Colby Covington was hoping for, but we know a welterweight bout between these two is one not to miss.

With Darren Till coming back from his disappointing round 2 defeat to Tyron Woodley in September 2018, he's had plenty of time to reflect and improve his skill set to redeem his position as one of the UFC's best fighters.

Colby Covington hasn't stepped inside the octagon since June 2018, going five rounds with Rafael Dos Anjos before taking the W after a unanimous decision.

The Stats:

Darren Till


Ranked #3 Welterweight

Colby Covington


Ranked #1 Welterweight

Could this be the perfect match up? Tickets for the fight go live Feb 1st 2019 for UFC Fight Night #147 at the London O2, March 16th 2019.
