Former contender for the UFC Welterweight title, Darren till, who is ranked sixth in the UFC Middleweight rankings, sees no problems in fighting the rising star of the organization, Khamzat Chimaev, from a fight with which the top fighters in two divisions refuse.
The Briton, who will face number four Jack Hermansson in December, promised to fight the Chechen finisher after the fight with the Norwegian, if necessary at that time.
“Ratings have never mattered in the UFC,” till tweeted. “Khamzat Chimaev, after I destroy the Jack in December if you still experience difficulty in finding an opponent, I’ll introduce you to the big boys, son!”.
We will remind that the duel between Darren Tellam and Jack Hermansson will be the main event of the tournament UFC Fight Night, which will be held on December 5 in Las Vegas.
Michael Chandler has responded to the challenge of Islam Makhachev
Former Bellator lightweight title holder, Michael Chandler, has no plans to take on Islam Makhachev, who challenged him after his opponent, Rafael DOS Anjos, dropped out of the UFC 254 tournament due to a coronavirus infection.
“Many people ask me about the fight with Islam Makhachev, but with all due respect, I do not know who this is,” the American said during a live broadcast on Instagram. “If someone lost an opponent because of the coronavirus, it doesn’t mean that I have to fight with the twelfth number of the rating. I insure the title fight. If my services are not needed, I will beat Tony Ferguson or Dustin Porrier, and within a year I will take the championship belt»
We will remind that Michael Chandler is preparing for the UFC 254 tournament as a reserve participant in the unification match between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Geitzhi, who will headline the number event on October 24.
