Darren Till Scheduled To Return To UFC 282 Against Dricus Du Plessis
Former Muay Thai fighter Darren Till (18-4-1) shared with his fans that he will be returning to the octagon for the first time this year on December 10 at UFC 282.
According to the reports coming from ESPN, Till will be up against Dricus du Plessis, with the bout having a verbal agreement. The event will be scheduled at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
“[Getting a] massive fight against one of the best strikers in the division, so this is all just about getting back now. Yeah, I’d say in a few months’ time, I’ll be ready,” Till said to ESPN recently.
“I want to have two fights by the end of this year. Two fights, and then next year’s a big year. The comeback is on.”
The English professional fighter hasn’t competed in the octagon since September 2021 when he came out second-best against Derek Brunson.
Before this loss, he succumbed to a decision off Robert Whittaker and overcame Kelvin Gastelum in his middleweight debut.
Till has only won one of his last five bouts and he has also suffered losses against Jorge Masvidal and Tyron Woodley respectively. The British athlete was set to return in July but pulled out because of injuries.
