UFC Fight Night 130: Thompson vs. Till marks the first trip to Liverpool, England, for the MMA juggernaut. Undefeated at 16-0-1, Till has the opportunity to vault up the UFC welterweight ranks when he meets Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in the main event.
Thompson (14-2-1) is a much more seasoned fighter with a decorated career in kickboxing before making the transition to the Octagon. Though he is 9-2-1 in the UFC, Thompson has a recent draw and loss to current champion Tyron Woodley on his record, which means he can’t afford a loss to anyone, let alone Till, if he hopes to climb back into a title fight while Woodley holds the belt.
The UFC Fight Night 130 co-main event features Top 10 ranked welterweight Neil Magny facing off against late replacement Craig White. Magny had original been slated to face Conor McGregor teammate Gunnar Nelson, but Nelson had to withdraw because of an injury.
