Robert Whittaker vs Darren Till Preview
‘Bobby Knuckles’ opens as a very narrow $1.88 favourite here, with Till the slight outsider at $1.93.
Whittaker enters this one with a stellar 20-5 record for his career and holds the distinction of being the former Middleweight champion.
He went on an impressive run of 9 straight UFC wins before getting knocked out by Adesanya last time out.
Known for his excellent finishing ability, he has 9 knockouts and 5 submissions to his name thus far.
Darren Till also enters this clash with a strong record, having gone 18-2-1 for his career thus far.
He has only won 1 of his last 3 fights, a split decision over Kelvin Gastelum last time out.
Also known for his impressive power, he has 10 career wins by KO thus far.
Having struggled to make weight at Welterweight, this will only be his second UFC fight at Middleweight.
If healthy, I ultimately think Whittaker is the better of these two fighters, with a frame more suited to Middleweight.
He is capable of going toe-to-toe with Till on the feet, but also has an advantage on the ground should the fight go there.
There’s no shame in losing to Adesanya on current form and his record prior to that was second-to-none in the Middleweight division.
All 3 methods of victory are in play here, so I’d stick with the straight up win at $1.88.
