Thompson is one of the most recognizable faces in the game and Till is looking to build his brand by planting a fist squarely on it.
Main Card & UFC Fight Night 130 Betting Odds
Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson enters this weekend’s fight sporting a 14-2 professional MMA record. Although Thompson has complained about facing a lower-ranked opponent, Wonderboy had a shot at the title a few fights ago. In fact, Thompson had two shots at the title. The first bout between him and Tyron Woodley, the current welterweight champion, ended in a draw. However, many fans felt intrigued by the fight, as Woodley and Thompson delivered an extremely close spectacle. But the following championship bout between the two resulted in a snore. Since then, Woodley’s stock has dropped and Thompson has been sent to the back of the line. Coming off a decision victory over Jorge Masvidal at UFC 217, Thompson is hopeful a big performance this sportsbook betting weekend can thrust him back into the title picture.
Casual fans may not be that familiar with Darren Till but the Englishman has certainly made a name for himself so far. A knockout win over Thompson this weekend would propel him even further into the spotlight. And there’s no doubt that Till will be vying for the knockout. With a 16-0-1 record, Till is one of the more impressive younglings the UFC has on their roster. All in all Till enters this matchup riding a 3-bout win streak. His most recent performance was a brutal TKO win over Donald Cerrone which undoubtedly got him this weekend’s bout.
