Cappers Analysis:

Jazz Ray: UFC - FIGHT OF THE WEEK!

The main event this weekend will be AWESOME! Everyone is forgetting that Whittaker was the CHAMP and his knockout power is CRAZY! Till won't be able to go toe to toe with as this one ends early with a TKO and Hill's climb up the ladder comes to an abrupt stop! WHITTAKER with ease!

Lee Sterling: Huge 9 Unit UFC Release

Robert "Bobby Knuckles" Whittaker lost his title to one of the best fighters in the UFC in Isreal Aedsanya. No shame there! He in my opinion is the 2nd best fighter in this class. The UFC is pushing Darren Till but his best win is Kevin Gastelum and that's isn't such a nice feather in his cap. The difference from Aedsanya & Whittaker is a lot. Whittaker has better power and I feel he learned a lot from losing that fight.

Tim Michael: 10* UFC BANKROLL BUILDER > > MASSIVE SPECIAL PRICING!

Whittaker is ranked No. 1 in the middleweight division, while Darren Till is ranked No. 5. Both fighters moved up from 170 lbs, but Whittaker has been much quicker than most of his opponents, while still retaining his KO power. Whittaker has been around a while and this is a chance to move back into championship contention. Till looked decent vs. Gastelum in his last fight, but I believe he'll struggle in this step up in competition. I think the Aussie carries over his recent momentum to a solid victory here.

Ricky Tran: Ricky's UFC CLASH of the TITANS - Whittaker vs Till

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this fight the recent history of these two fighters is particularly significant.

Key Trends:
- Whittaker has won nine of his last 10 fights.
- Till has lost two of his last three fights.
- Whittaker is more comfortable at 185 lbs.

Mike Lundin: FIGHT OF THE WEEK (UFC) - FIGHT ISLAND 3 MAIN EVENT

I like Robert Whittaker as a favorite over Darren Till in this Middleweight fight on UFC Fight Island 3.

Whittaker is 20-5 in his MMA career and 11-3 in the UFC. He took a loss to Middleweight title holder Israel Adesanya in his last fight but should do better here against Till who is  18-2-1 in his MMA career and 6-2-1 in the UFC.

It's unlikely we'll see much fighting on the ground as Till averages 0.66 of takedowns and Whittaker 0.36.

Whittaker should have a decent advantage standing as he has more weapons and averages a solid 4.77 significant strikes per minute. While Till has a powerful left hand, note that he is landing just 2.41 significant strikes per minute.

 

Best of luck!
