Top middleweights Darren Till and Jack Hermansson are scheduled to meet in the main event of a UFC Fight Night card on December 5th.
ESPN first reported the matchup. The booking is subject to Till gaining medical clearance following a torn MCL in his fight against Robert Whittaker last month on “Fight Island.”
Till (18-3-1) lost by unanimous decision to Whittaker in July in his second fight at 185-pounds since moving up from welterweight. “The Gorilla” outclassed Kelvin Gastelum in his middleweight debut last November to break into the top five of the division.
Hermansson (21-5) also fought last month on “Fight Island” picking up a quick first-round submission win against Gastelum. “The Joker” had his four-fight winning streak snapped in September of last year when he lost to Jared Cannonier by stoppage at UFC Copenhagen.
The fight between Till and Hermansson will headline the Fight Night which is without a current location or venue on December 5th. No other fights have yet been announced to take place on the card.
