UFC 244: Darren Till to face Kelvin Gastelum at middleweight in NYC

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.
