Two top middleweight contenders Derek Brunson and Darren Till will face off today at UFC Apex in the Vegas 36 event. The fight will be five rounds and both fighters have the capability to win the battle. Hence, we can expect a competitive bout.
So which fighter will have more advantages?
Till was impressive in his first three years after joining UFC. He used to fight in the welterweight category and later moved to 185 and his first defeat came against Tyron Woodley at UFC 228. After that Till appeared in three more matches and won just one, even losing his last meet up in July 2020 against Robert Whittaker. So, returning to the octagon after more than a year, Darren Till will surely look for a win.
On the other hand, Brunson has been phenomenal in his last few fights and showed his takedown skills. In his last two fights against Kevin Holland and Edmen Shahbazyan, the opponents could barely stay against his takedown skill. But this might not continue against Till, as he is much more defensive than those two fighters.
