News officially announced.

Many said it wouldn't happen, many said he doesn't deserve it. But "The Gorilla" is fighting Steven Thompson, in his home city of Liverpool on May the 27th.

We're going to get to see what Till is made of with the BIGGEST test of his career V the welterweight number 1 Steven "Wonderboy" Thompson.

Till will surely be entering the Octagon as the underdog, with a win propelling him into title contention. He's told us all he is the future of MMA, he's put the Middleweight and Light heavyweight divisions on notice but wants the Welterweight belt 1st, a belt he is already claiming as his own!

Is he all talk or has he got the walk......?

The Liverpool card has already eclipsed the recent London event and we have many official bouts confirmed

Fight card so far....

Till V Thomsopn
Magny V Neil "thundercat" White
Kelly V Breese
Theodorou v Trevor Smith
Brad Scott v tba
Allen V Burnell
Claudio Silva V Taleb
Knight v Amirkhani
Eric Spicely v Darren Stewart
Lina Lansberg v Gina Mazany
Meatball Molly v Gillian Robertson
Grant v Manny Bermudez

Sure, but then they'll make him defend that ranking spot, and he'll have to fight guys like Usman or Demian Maia.

I think Till might be the real deal. This is his chance to show it and I think his destiny is in his own hands here. With Wonderboy being such a timid fighter recently I could see him getting steamrolled. It's up to Till to take advantage of Wonderboy's lack of aggressivity. If Till shows hesitation Wonderboy will probably win.

after analysing both fighters i think till is going to destroy thompson

 

thompson's strength is his stand up. But it is when he is at range. His hands are his weakest standup aspect. He often gets caught with his chin up and his hand technique is pretty poor tbh.  Thompson is most comfortable at range and counter striking. He likes it when his opponent comes forward so long as he can control the distance.

 

Till's strength is his standup. The difference here is Till's hands are his strength, he likes to control the distance but he isnt primarily a counter striker. He will come forward and cut off the cage. Till also has the advantage of brutal knees and elbows to rely on when he gets close. Till is the bigger stronger ww. I think we could see a couple of takedown attempts from both fighters but i think till would get the better of the ground game.

 

 

Till will control the distance and keep pressure on thompson, lighting him up everytime his back is near the cage.

I'm a little worried their styles are to nullify each other.

Wonderboy will be fighting at distance, Till better be careful not to fall into traps moving in. I see Tills way in is with his brutal kicks to the body then following up on the inside letting his hands and elbows go.

Heart says Till KO, head says Wonderboy on points. I'm gonna sit on the fence until we're closer.

after watching tills previous fights im not to worried, he doesnt chase his opponents. He cuts them off and makes them pay when they get close to the cage. He is good at landing shots whilst his opponent tries to strafe left or right.

 

This is exactly how thompson fights, thmpson has a habit of strafing with his chin up.

Fight Night over here in England starts around 6pm GMT for the undercard. 9pm GMT will be the main card. They cater for the UK And European market for Fight Night events. That's 1 or 2pm Main card for West coast America.

Then you see cringey threads like how we need to close down the division with the longest reigning champion..

Yeah, if I showed up to see all that, and then a bunch of white guys going "Oh, you jive turkey! We's a gonna have a champ ova yonda! Eh, Pookie?!".... yeah, it's gone.

If that didn't help we got The Count stating the obvious with his comments on the main event.

At the end he calls out the UFC, again, to put him on the card. No chance Mike hits that card in my mind.

Been easy for him fighting smaller guys all the time,now he has to fight someone his own size,he likely gets KO'd and won't be ready for someone like WB.

The obvious and only way to beat WB is via great wrestling however WB has learned enough to be pretty resilient.Will be nice to see Till put in his place.

Rumours of 12 and 0 Manny Bermudez being put on the card versus Davey Grant.

Grant hasn't fought since 204 where he lost via armbar to Stasiak. This would be Mannys second in the Octagon coming of a impressive UFC debut win against Albert Morales.

If the Pikey gos through Aljamain he'll have bigger fish to fry, that said I can't see it. Beating Davey Grant won't do much for Manny and the rankings, so yeah could see that fight being made, both beating Morales recently.
