UFC Looking At Till-Thompson In Liverpool
Following the announcement of UFC’s debut in Liverpool, Darren Till was installed as the headliner for the first event in his hometown.
When Till was announced for the card, he did not have an opponent scheduled for the event taking place on May 27th from the Echo Arena.
Now, per a report from Chris Taylor at BJPenn.com, Stephen Thompson is set to be joining Till in the main event, after both were rumored for a February Fox card, but Thompson was still recovering from a thumb injury sustained at UFC 217.
