UFC Releases Official Poster for London Event

The UFC’s return to London after a three-year absence was a full hit for the world’s strongest MMA promotion. The O2 Arena was full to the brim, and we haven’t seen such an atmosphere at UFC events in a long time.

Everyone was simply delighted, from the fighters to the fans and leaders of the promotion. White then announced that the UFC would definitely return to the Island this year. He kept his promise, and the UFC Fight Night 210 event will take place on July 23 (the seventh month).

Once again the heavyweight showdown will lead the London event and again English heavyweight Tom Aspinall will be one of the actors. His opponent this time will not be Alexander Volkov, but Curtis Blaydes. It will be a real test of Aspinall's abilities, and if Aspinall wins that match, the fight for the title could become his next step.

Apart from Aspinall and Blaydes, we will also watch new performances by fighters such as Alexander Gustafsson, Paul Craig, Volkan Oezdemir, but also Damir Hadžović. Still, one name attracts perhaps the most attention on the entire card.

It is, of course, about Darren Till, who is waiting for his first fight since the ninth month and was defeated by Derek Brunson. Till is in a series of two consecutive defeats, and has recorded as many as four in his last five appearances.

A victory is more than necessary for him, and Jack Hermansson is coming to London after the defeat by Sean Strickland at the beginning of the second month of this year. How important Darren TIll is to the name of this event is clearly shown by the UFC's official poster, which they put out in anticipation of the event that awaits us in more than a month.

Of course, Aspinall and Blaydes are in the spotlight as they lead the show, but Darren Till and Jack Hermansson also found a place on the poster.

There is no doubt that Till will enjoy the huge support of the London audience. Perhaps the biggest support will go to Paddy Pimblett, but the promotion clearly thinks it’s too early for his place on the poster and “Baddy” has yet to build such a reputation within the UFC.
