UFC middleweight contender Darren Till looks absolutely shredded in anticipation of his fight against Robert Whittaker next Saturday on Fight Island.
Till and Whittaker meet in the main event of the fourth Fight Island map. For these two middleweight contenders, this is a very important fight in the 185lbs division. The winner of that fight could very well win a title against the winner of the just-announced UFC 253 middleweight title fight between Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa.
For Till, this will be the second fight at 185 pounds after racing up and down as a welterweight. In Till’s middleweight debut, he beat Kelvin Gastelum by split decision at UFC 244 last November. He now faces off against Whittaker, who returns to the Octagon for the first time since relinquishing his belt to Adesanya last October at UFC 243.
Ahead of their showdown on Fight Island, Till shared a photo of himself looking torn. Check it out below (the fourth photo from her album).
It’s clear Till trained hard for this fight against Whittaker, and for good reason. After all, Whittaker is a former champion and one of the most proven fighters in the entire division. For Till, he needs to be in the best shape of his life for this fight as it could be the kind of fight that makes or breaks his career at 185 pounds. With a win, Till can get a title shot, but a loss will put him back in the middle of the middleweight pack.
The betting odds for Till vs Whittaker were released a short time ago, with Whittaker opening up as a small betting favorite, although the betting action brought the fight to a Pick ’em.
