Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson v Darren Till: Fight preview

With Conor McGregor’s future still shrouded in uncertainty and Michael Bisping heading towards a richly deserved retirement, UK and Irish UFC fans are crying out for a new hero.

Step forward, then, Darren Till.

The heavy-handed Liverpudlian was a virtual unknown on these shores to all but the most committed of UFC aficionados as recently as eight months ago.

That all changed on an incredible night in Gdansk last October as he conjured a brutal - and largely unexpected - dismantling of the hugely experienced Donald Cerrone.

His reward is an incredible opportunity to make an even bigger splash in the furiously competitive welterweight division by upsetting number one contender Stephen Thompson.

There’s plenty of icing on the cake, too, as he gets a crack at ‘Wonderboy’ in front of a vociferous home crowd on a historic night at the Echo Arena.

Till’s dramatic rise to prominence is all the more remarkable considering he is lucky to be here at all after a terrifying brush with death in 2012.

He was stabbed twice in the back after confronting a group of men at a party in Liverpool, with one of the cuts missing a main artery by mere millimetres.

The incident prompted Till, then 19, to relocate to Balneario Camboriu in southern Brazil on the advice of his coach at Team Kaobon, Colin Heron.

He spent the next three-and-a-half-years in South America honing his Muay Thai skills and grafting for pay cheques in a host of Brazilian domestic promotions.

Embarking on such an unorthodox journey – rather than travelling the well-trodden Cage Warriors or BAMMA paths - explains why he remained so unheralded in the UK until he shot down ‘Cowboy’.

Till made his UFC debut in May 2015 at UFC Fight Night: Condit v Alves, announcing himself with an eye-catching KO win over Wendell de Oliveira.

Shoulder surgery following his next bout – a draw against Nicolas Dalby – kept him out for more than 18 months but since returning he has reeled off three straight wins.

The 25-year-old also takes an unbeaten 17-fight MMA career record into the showdown with Thompson and his bullish media displays suggest he believes it is a fight he can win.

There have been grumbles about the way Till – currently ranked #8 – has been allowed to jump the disorderly queue of hungry, established contenders above him in the standings.

Thompson’s unusually forthright trash-talking before and after the fight was announced suggest he's almost offended at the prospect of having to face Till.

Or perhaps he’s simply rattled by the narrative dead-end Sunday’s bout presents for him in the context of champion Tyron Woodley’s ongoing spell on the sidelines after shoulder surgery.

‘Wonderboy’ has much more to lose as he bids to get last March's desperately disappointing rematch defeat to Woodley out of his system and re-assert his claim to be the world’s best welterweight.

Any talk of facing #2 contender Rafael dos Anjos or a potential trilogy fight with ‘T-Wood’ would have to be shelved immediately if Till shocks the MMA world once again.

Yet whichever way it goes in Liverpool, both men possess genuine one-strike KO power - so fireworks are practically guaranteed.

And if the defining blow heralds the arrival of another potential homegrown world champion... well, then even better!
