Ranked middleweight contenders will top the marquee Saturday as Derek Brunson faces Darren Till in the main event of UFC Fight Night. The main card is set for 4 p.m. ET from the Apex facility in Las Vegas.
The winner could be in line for a title shot against sitting champion Israel Adesanya, who currently does not have a fight scheduled though he is reportedly considering a rematch against former champion Robert Whittaker.
With the UFC marketing machine behind him, Till (18-3-1) worked his way to a title shot at welterweight, where was stopped by then-champion Tyron Woodley in the second round. Brunson (22-7) is a versatile veteran who has battled inconsistency throughout his career, but hasn't lost since being stopped by Adesanya in 2018. With a fifth straight win Saturday, he could make a strong case for a rematch with the sitting champion.
Till is a -160 favorite (risk $160 to win $100), while Brunson is a +140 underdog (risk $100 to win $140) in the latest UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Till odds at Caesars Sportsbook.
