Liverpool will play host to the UFC this weekend as local Muay Thai fighter Darren Till takes on the Karate and Kickboxing specialist of Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson on Sunday 27 May.

This fight sees two of the most feared strikers in the Welterweight division, if not the entire sport, face off against each other in what promises to be an incredibly confrontational contest.

Wonderboy is known as one of the best counter-strikers in the world being a master of dictating range and punishing overly aggressive fighters. Darren Till is one of the divisions brightest rising stars and has shown an incredible talent of breaking his opponents defences with precise combinations and elbow strikes.
