Darren Till Responds To Robert Whittaker's Call Out For UFC London
Darren Till has accepted the offer of a blockbuster showdown with Robert Whittaker for UFC London.
Till returned to the win column in his last bout at UFC 244, where he beat Kelvin Gastelum by split-decision on his middleweight debut.
The 26-year-old entered the UFC middleweight rankings at No.5 and he's now set his sights on the No.1 contender Whittaker.
He's called for a fight with the Aussie and proposed a meeting at UFC London early next year.
"Let's fight at ufc London then @robwhittakermma? #YouAreNotReady," he Tweeted.

Whittaker, 29, suffered his first loss at 185lbs to Israel Adesanya and he wants his first match after losing his title to be against Till.
"I'm really interested in the Till fight," he said. "I'd love to fight him in London, next year. We were talking about it today, a big part of fighting and doing what I do and being on the international stage is enjoying the ride.
"Enjoying the experience, enjoying traveling, going to new cities, going to new countries to fight. To work. To make a living. So I've never been to London, I'd love to go, I'd love to fight there, I'd love to fight Till. That's a good fight.
"It's not personal, but I want to fight in London, and he's kind of my ticket in there. So no offense Till, but let's fight in London. That'd be cool.
"I think he's a great fighter, I think that last fight was super technical. Very smart. I like the way he carries himself. I like straight cats, I like guys what you see is what you get sorta thing.
"He reminds me of the characters in Peaky Blinders, so I just like him. He's just savvy. He's cool."
