With events on Fight Island coming to a close, Whittaker vs. Till is sure to leave the venue with fireworks. There is an incredible amount of fights with 30 athletes competing at the event.
Next week, however, the UFC will return to the states, and events will be once again held at the UFC Apex facility.
A lot of veterans are going to be making their way back into the Octagon with the likes of Alex Oliveira, Shogun Rua, Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and Alexander Gustafsson will even be coming out of retirement. We will see just how much fight exactly some of the legends of the sport still have left within them.
The Main Event is featuring a young star in Darren Till and once champion Robert Whittaker. This is an important fight for the division, and a lot of Middleweight fighters in the top 10 will be watching very carefully, especially Jack Hermansson.
Another up and comer who is featured on the card is Khamzat Chimaev. He is coming off a huge UFC debut just a few weeks ago right here on Fight Island. He has an aggressive wrestling style and tends to maul his opponents. He will share the octagon with a huge underdog, Rhys Mckee, fighting out of Northern Ireland.
Tanner Boser is another fighter who is coming back from a quick turnaround. He recently knocked out Phillipe Lins at Heavyweight just a few weeks ago. Tonight we will see him face off against Raphael Pessoa in the preliminary card.
Pessoa only has one defeat against Ciryl Gane and will look for a nice return after about a year lay off from competing.
