UFC 228 features the main event of Darren Till V Tyron Woodley for the Welterweight Title. The co-main event of Valentina Shevchenko V Nicco Montano was unfortunately cancelled due to Nicco being hospitalised during her weight cut. The rest of the card is so so and i’ll focus solely on the Till V Woodley fight.
Tyron Woodley V Darren Till
Tyron Woodley is one of the masters of breaking an opponent down and not allowing them to use their strengths against him. As most of the champions generally do, he has a very strong mental game, he will find the best way to win the fight and stick to his plan. I expect Woodley to be cautious in the first couple of rounds and use his takedowns and wrestling to win the rounds. The longer the fight goes, the less likely it’s going to be that Till will land a knockout blow.
Darren Till is bigger than Woodley and is yet to lose an mma fight, he’s had one draw which came against Nicholas Dalby at UFC Fight Night 76. The thing that worries me about his record is that very few of his fights have come against top quality opponents, like Woodley. Till’s major wins are against Donald Cerrone who let’s face it, has a record of 33/11 and isn’t the best fighter on the roster. And Stephen Thompson which was a five round fight and quite honestly could have been awarded to Thompson.
Darren Till has been talking a big game but we’ll find out if he can back it up on the big stage. Ultimately I think Tyron Woodley’s tactics will be stronger and he’s been there, done that and I expect him to do it again.
