Cerrone (32-9, 1NC MMA, 19-6 UFC) was a staple of the UFC Lightweight division prior to moving up to 170lbs. Following the move, “Cowboy” won his first four fights, finishing them all, but has dropped his last two, losing to Jorge Masvidal and Robbie Lawler.
Till (15-0-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) has impressed massively since his UFC debut; in that debut, he stopped Wendell Oliveira with brutal elbows at UFC Goiania. He then fought to a draw in a FOTY contender against Nicholas Dalby. Following two years off due to injury, Till returned and impressively defeated Jessin Ayari. In his most recent outing, he outclassed Bojan Velickovic.
UFC Fight Night 118 takes place live from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland on October 21, 2017.
