UFC has been making the most of their time on Fight Island, and this Saturday they will close out this stretch of events with a big bang. A former UFC Middleweight champion takes on a man who fought for the Welterweight title before jumping back up in weight. Both “The Reaper” and “The Gorilla” are known for putting on a show, so this Main Event is sure to be excitement packed. You can visit Fight Island one more time by watching Whittaker vs. Till in UFC Fight Night (opens in new tab) on ESPN Plus (ESPN+) or ESPN. 

When is UFC Fight Night: Whittaker vs. Till? 

UFC Fight Night: Whittaker vs. Till (opens in new tab) is broadcasting  on Saturday, July 18 from “UFC FIght Island”, also known as Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This Fight Night is available on both ESPN and ESPN+, with the Prelims starting at 5 p.m. Eastern time and the Main Card beginning at  8 p.m. Eastern.

UFC Fight Night: Whittaker vs. Till — The Main Event Preview 

Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker (21-5) is the former UFC Middleweight champ, and he is the number one ranked contender seeking a second chance at the title. Whittaker held the belt for just over two years after winning the title vacated by Georges St.-Pierre. He was riding a nine fight win streak into his fight against Israel Adesanya, but Whittaker was knocked out in the second round by his undefeated Adesanya. 

As the current champ, Adesanya has already defended the Middleweight title back in March, and has his next fight set for September. Whittaker needs to make the most against this fight, since he’s only fought one time in each of the last two years. Can he stay in position to get a rematch for the strap in 2021?

Darren “The Gorilla” Till (18-2-1) is the fifth ranked UFC Men’s middleweight fighter even though this is only his second fight at Middleweight in the UFC. Till has been competing as a welterweight since 2014 (with a few catchweight fights mixed in when he missed weight). He rose up to a title fight against Tyron Woodley at UFC 248, but he got choked out on his way to a two fight losing streak. 

Now Till is back at middleweight and trying to climb the rankings more after his debut win over Kelvin Gastelum. Could a win over a former champ in Whittaker be enough for Till to get his own shot at Adesanya?
