Hey, can someone please tell Stephen Thompson he’s supposed to fight Darren Till in Liverpool?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently revealed its plans to make its mixed martial arts (MMA) debut in Liverpool, England, headlined by none other than local hero and undefeated welterweight contender Darren Till.

More on that news here.

During last weekend’s announcement, Till told the fans in attendance for the UFC London weigh ins that his goal was to fight former division title contender Stephen Thompson, which led to a feeding frenzy on the message boards.

Too bad nobody told “Wonderboy.”

Till (16-0-1) scored his biggest win to date by turning away longtime veteran Donald Cerrone last October in Poland. Thompson (14-2-1), meanwhile, has been arguing with this fellow contender about who deserves the next crack at Tyron Woodley’s crown.

Then we have the division’s class clown somewhere in the mix.

Since the UFC Fight Night 130 event is booked for May 27, the promotion doesn’t have a lot of time to make up its mind about Till’s opponent, so expect to hear something in the next few weeks, if not days.
