While there had been hopes that Till’s next fight could take place in his native England, he instead meets Brunson at UFC Vegas 36 on Sept. 4. An official poster for the bout was released Friday.
Brunson—the No. 5-ranked middleweight in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings—has cemented himself as a contender with wins in his past four appearances. Should he defeat Till (10), he may earn himself a long-awaited rematch with UFC champion Israel Adesanya.
Not featured on the poster, other main card attractions include three-time UFC title contender Alexander Gustafsson returning to the light heavyweight division to fight Paul Craig (15), and the undefeated Jack Shore facing top prospect Said Nurmagomedov in a bantamweight bout.
See the UFC Vegas 36 lineup below (card still to be finalized):
Derek Brunson vs. Darren Till
Paul Craig vs. Alexander Gustafsson
Said Nurmagomedov vs. Jack Shore
Magomed Anklaev vs. Volkan Oezdemir
