Report: Darren Till Meets Colby Covington At UFC London

UFC Is Looking To Book The Welterweight Division Match Between Darren Till And Colby Covington!

Darren Till and Colby Covington went many times back and forth on social media in the past. But it looks like the two will finally get a chance to solve their problems at UFC London, which takes place in March 2019, in the capital of England. BJPenn’s Chris Taylor tweeted about the news.

I’m told the UFC is looking to book a welterweight fight between Colby Covington and Darren Till for #UFCLondon on March 17.

Covington has recently stated that he will hold out for his promised title shot, so we shall see what happens.

It was reported on January 6th that Tyron Woodley was set to defend his UFC Welterweight belt against Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman at UFC 235.

It means Colby Covington was played since the promotion initially promised him a title match against “T-Wood”.

Covington was furious. He ripped “lying” Dana White for not giving him a title shot and even challenged UFC president to break his contract.

Let’s remember, “Chaos” has already earned a UFC Interim Welterweight belt after a victory over Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225. Covington was planned for a title unification match against Tyron Woodley but could not fight at UFC 228 because of the nasal surgery.

UFC gave Darren Till (17-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) a chance to meet Tyron Woodley in a title match. “The Chosen One” won via D’Arce choke in the second round.

“The Gorilla” hasn’t had a match since UFC 228. Till also spoke about moving to 185. But it looks like the British fighter delays division change and remains in UFC Welterweight division to meet Colby Covington (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC).
