Darren Till is headlining at home again.

After getting the chance to main event in his hometown of Liverpool last May, “The Gorilla” is returning to England where he fights Jorge Masvidal in a welterweight bout at UFC London on March 16.

Officials released the poster for the event Sunday, which also features welterweights Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson.

Fresh off a second-round submission loss to welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, Till will be looking to avoid the first losing streak of his career when he takes on Masvidal, a veteran of 45 fights.

Meanwhile, Edwards could increase his win streak to seven with a win over Nelson, who has won three of his last four.

UFC Fight Night 147 takes place at The O2 Arena in London on March 16 and the main card will air on the ESPN+ streaming service.

See the updated card below (bout order to be determined):

Darren Till vs. Jorge Masvidal

Leon Edwards vs. Gunnar Nelson

Volkan Oezdemir vs. Dominick Reyes

Gokhan Saki vs. Saparbek Safarov

Tom Breese vs. Cezar Ferreira

Jack Marshman vs. John Phillips

Danny Roberts vs. Claudio Silva

Molly McCann vs. Priscila Cachoeira
