Early betting odds for Cowboy vs. Till
With so many eyes firmly focused on UFC 217 and beyond, it’s easy to forget that there’s a potential Fight of the Year contender coming up over in Europe in just a few weeks time.
For those who don’t know, UFC legend Donald Cerrone will be stepping back inside the octagon once again to fight the man who everyone is raving about – Liverpool’s Darren Till.
The two men are known for their gungho style of fighting, and given that they are both in the prime of their careers it’s not hard to foresee a sensational showdown in Gdansk on October 21st.
In terms of the betting odds for this one, Paddy Power are offering some interesting odds given the two individuals involved. Unsurprisingly, Cerrone opens as the 1/2 favourite meanwhile the underdog Till is out to 6/4 to come away with what would be something of an upset victory.
Till has already confirmed that he’ll have a hefty fanbase joining him in Poland, as the Scousers continue to prove why a UFC event in Liverpool would surely be a great idea on Dana White’s part.
The only other market currently being offered is total rounds with Over 2.5 being 4/7 meanwhile Under 2.5 is 5/4.
Both men possess the power to land a knockout blow in the opening few rounds, but they’re also warriors and in this sport that can take you a long way. Still, given that this main event is set at five rounds it’s still a bit odd to see PP not entertaining the idea that this could be over relatively quickly.
Whilst Donald has admitted in the past that he just loves to get out there and fight, we can’t imagine that he wouldn’t want to make another run for the belt – meanwhile Till has no pressure on his shoulders as he attempts to make a name for himself off of this UFC veteran.
With the always popular Karolina Kowalkiewicz also set to fight on this card, it’s easy to see why many are already tipping this to be the best European event of the year for the UFC. Of course, the bar hasn’t been set all too high over the last nine months, but the main card alone is enough of a reason to be excited.
One way or another we’re going to see a belter of a fight in Poland, and the only question that remains is whether or not it’ll come from the co-main event or Cowboy vs Till.
