Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker will take the first step in a return toward the title when he faces Darren Till on Saturday at UFC on ESPN 14 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
Whittaker lost the belt to Israel Adesanya last October. Although Till has only fought one other time at middleweight, he defeated top contender Kelvin Gastelum in that debut. He now sits at No. 5 in the rankings, so it would be a solid victory for Whittaker.
