The Gorilla‘ started off his 5th UFC main event off with early success as managed to drop Whittaker with a well-placed elbow. Additionally, his distance management as the bout was underway showed a lot of promise. MMA fans and pundits largely expected the fight to play out as a stand-up exchange at the mixed range.

Not to mention he managed to shift the momentum of this contest in his favor going forward. From the get-go, it was clear that the headliner was set to live up to the hype it generated.

According to Till, the 2nd round also saw him absorb a devastating side kick to his knee that ultimately led to the injury. Moreover, he relayed the same to his corner when he returned after a tough fought 2nd round. However, the scrappy Brit continued to stay within the contest but would ultimately drop a decision loss to his record.
