Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker is scheduled to fight Darren Till at UFC Fight Night in Dublin. The fight is scheduled to take place on August 15.

The Coronavirus pandemic has led to the cancellation of numerous UFC events. UFC has plans to return on May 9 from Jacksonville, Florida. However, the gyms that the fighters train in are closed, and as result fighters have had to improvise with their training arrangements.

Now, Whittaker has offered a viable option of fighting at catchweight. This way the fighters don’t have to train to lose weight.

I really want to come sort of an agreement with Darren because I feel like he gets it. That we just don’t train at all, we just don’t train, we do a catchweight at like ’95 and just rock up,” Whittaker said to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. “Bro, I love that. I’m sure he would love that too. We just dip and chips it up until August and get in there and light it up. He gets it.”

Darren Till accepts catchweight fight

It didn’t take Darren Till long convincing him to take the catchweight fight against Robert Whittaker. Till took to social media to announce that he is ready to fight at 195lbs.

It’s not even a thought… YES,” Till tweeted.

Now that we aren’t cutting weight rob? @robwhittakermma. Shall we just use the fight week time to our advantage, drink? Dip? And Game? Might as well…,” he added.

Former welterweight title challenger Darren Till is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244. He was then scheduled to fight Jared Cannonier at UFC 248 but the fight didn’t go as planned as Cannonier had to pull out following an injury.

On the other hand, Robert Whittaker 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.
