Former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till will take on former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker on July 25 at Fight Island.

The pair will headline the final card of the four-fight cards taking place at the Yas Islands in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

This is an important fight for Robert Whittaker, who is coming off of a second-round TKO loss to Israel Adesanya at UFC 243. Prior to his loss, he was coming off of back to back wins over Yoel Romero.

Robert Whittaker and Darren Till

Both fighters had friendly back and forth banter prior to the announcement of their fights. But with less than a month left for the fights, things are getting serious between the two.

Honestly, it’s the same as it’s always been,” Whittaker said in an interview with Submission Radio. “It’s cool how it’s a different approach, but I’m not really thinking about whether Darren’s a cool guy or not. Before the fight was lined up, it was cool to just josh back and forth, have a bit of a laugh at it, and try to make some interest for the fight, but once we kinda knew we were fighting, I don’t really care what sort of person he is. It’s one of those things where all I’m focusing on now is crushing him.

The thing is, we’re just cool,” Whittaker said. “We’re cool. He’s doing his thing, I’m doing mine. We have a bit of fun but we’re both respectful. Don’t get us wrong though, the weeks are getting closer and our sights are set on each other’s faces. It’s war time. I’m ready for the fight of my life and I’m gonna bring the fight of his life.”

Robert Whittaker: I have no friends in the MW division

Robert Whittaker made it clear that even if there’s no ill between them, he has no friends in the middleweight division.


For one, let me just say, I have no friends in the middleweight division. (Laughs). I can’t be friends with anybody I could be fighting, so let’s just clear that up. And two, mate, we’re in the fight game. It’s cool to be lined up with a guy that isn’t acting like a Gronk, but at the end of the day, he’s coming to take what’s mine and I’m coming to take what’s his. That’s the game we’re in. That’s the fight game, that’s the fight world.” Robert Whittaker concluded. (H/T – MMAFighting.com)
