Former UFC welterweight title contender Darren Till will return to middleweight against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244 in New York on 2 November.
The Liverpudlian is currently on a two-fight skid, losing his title challenge against Tyron Woodley and then succumbing to a second-round knockout against Jorge Masvidal in London earlier this year.

Gastelum is a former title challenger himself. The TUF winner faces Israel Adesanya for the interim middleweight championship in April, losing a back-and-forth war over five rounds with the New Zealander.
Till has teased a move up to the middleweight division after a series of publicised issues making the 170-pound welterweight limit.
In Gastelum, “The Gorilla” faces a tough test as he seeks to return on the ascent he enjoyed throughout 2017 and the first half of 2018.
