Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will attempt to clear up the current logjam in the welterweight division by asking division champion Tyron Woodley to throw down with Darren Till in the upcoming UFC 228 pay-per-view (PPV) event later tonight (Sat., Sept. 8, 2018) inside American airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas.
Interim champion Colby Covington will be stripped of his title once the fight begins.
Woodley (18-3-1) hasn’t competed in well over a year after undergoing shoulder surgery to repair an injury he suffered during his title defense against Demian Maia at UFC 214 back in July of 2017. As for Till, he was last seen edging out “Wonderboy” at UFC Fight Night 130 earlier this year, bringing his mint record to (17-0-1, 5-0-1 UFC).
