NICOLAS DALBY AND Darren Till will put their unbeaten records on the line at UFC Fight Night 76.

The undefeated welterweights have been confirmed to meet on the Dustin Poirier versus Joseph Duffy card at Dublin’s 3Arena on Saturday, 24 October.

Denmark’s Dalby (14-0) was responsible for one of last year’s most spectacular knockouts when he stopped Sergei Churilov, which saw him succeed Cathal Pendred as the Cage Warriors welterweight champion.


Dalby went on to make a winning start to life in the UFC with a split-decision win over Zaleski Dos Santos at UFC Fight Night 67.

Liverpool’s Till (13-0) also made his UFC debut on the same card in May, stopping Wendell de Oliveira Marques in the second round.

According to MMAjunkie, a heavyweight co-main event featuring America duo Ben Rothwell and Stipe Miocic is also agreed.

Rothwell is on a run of three straight wins — including first-round stoppages of Alistair Overeem and Matt Mitrione — while Miocic scored a big fifth-round TKO against Mark Hunt in his last outing.
