Darren Till, Stephen Thompson wow UFC Liverpool fans at open workouts

LIVERPOOL, England – The lead starts of the UFC’s debut in Liverpool, England, got in front of the fans today.

And suffice it to say, the reception was strong for hometown fan favorite Darren Till (16-0-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC), who will try to keep his unbeaten record intact when he takes on two-time welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson (14-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC).

Till is just a slight betting favorite against “Wonderboy,” but the bout nearly is a pick’em for UFC Fight Night 130, which takes place Sunday at Echo Arena in Liverpool. The card airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Check out the highlights from Till and Thompson’s workouts for the fans today in Liverpool in the video above.
