Robert Whittaker vs Darren Till targeted for UFC Dublin main event
Former UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker is seemingly set for a triumphant return to the Octagon in August, as the Aussie veteran is reportedly set for a showdown against Liverpool's very own Darren Till at UFC Dublin.
Whittaker, who was set for a clash against Jared Cannonier at UFC 248, eventually had to pull-out of the card due to personal issues, however, with Till also looking for his second fight in the Middleweight Division, a clash between two of 185's finest seems like the right call.
Till's last outing in the UFC took place at UFC 244 when he made his middleweight debut and defeated Kelvin Gastelum. Whereas, Whittaker, on the other hand, was last seen in the Octagon at UFC 243 when he lost the UFC Middleweight Title to Israel Adesanya.
When is UFC Dublin scheduled for?
