It looks like the fight between top UFC middleweights Jared Cannonier (13-4) and Darren Till (18-2-1) that was supposed to become part of the UFC 248 card, is not going to happen, at least at the said competition.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto announced the news on his Twitter:
“Based on conversations I’ve had, a potentially sweet middleweight fight between Darren Till and Jared Cannonier is NOT going to happen on March 7 in Las Vegas”
Till made his debut at middleweight with a triumphant win over ex-challenger Kelvin Gastelum. Before that he was on a two-fight lose streak at welterweight.
Cannonier moved down to middleweight in 2018 and has had three finishes since then, getting a spot at title race.
