UFC is reportedly on course to officially booking another exciting Middleweight clash, with this one featuring Darren Till, who is reportedly set for his return to the Octagon against Jack Hermansson.
According to a report from ESPN's Brett Okamoto, Darren Till will once again be returning to the Octagon by the end of the year for an exciting scarp against Jack Hermansson.
Darren Till returns for Jack Hermansson fight
Darren Till was recently involved in an instant Octagon classic against former UFC Middleweight Champion, Robert Whittaker at the UFC Fight Island, in a fight which was won by 'The Reaper' via unanimous decision. In the aftermath of the fight, Till revealed that he suffered a torn MCL and required surgery for it. However, 'The Gorilla' is now set to make his comeback, mostly based on the clearance of his left knee.
Darren Till made his Middleweight debut at UFC 244 when he faced and defeated Kelvin Gastelum, however, his second fight at 185 didn't exactly end up on the winning note he was hoping for. The Gorilla will be looking forward to getting back on winning terms once he steps foot into the cage against Jack Hermansson.
The Joker himself was also victorious on Fight Island when he defeated Kelvin Gastelum via submission. The win over Gastelum was somewhat needed for Hermansson, who had already lost to Jared Cannonier prior to the fight but does hold wins over the likes of Jacare Souza and David Branch.
When will Darren Till return to the Octagon?
The fight between Darren Till and Jack Hermansson is reportedly set for the UFC on December 5th card and will also serve as the event headliner. As things stand, the UFC is waiting for the medical clearance on Darren Till's left knee.
