The fourth and final UFC Fight Island event takes place on Yas Island this weekend, with a middleweight bout between former UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker and former UFC Welterweight Championship challenger Darren Till scheduled to headline the card.

We look ahead to Saturday night's fight, with our Whittaker vs Till betting tips...

Robert Whittaker MMA Record (21-5-0)

Former UFC middleweight champion Whittaker goes into the fight as the narrow favourite with the bookies. Nearly half of his wins have come by knockout, nine coming by KO/TKO.

The Aussie lost his belt last October in Melbourne, losing via 2nd round knockout to Israel Adesanya. It was a tough defeat, however prior to that loss he had won nine fights in a row. A win against Till could see him back in line for a title shot before the end of 2020. 

Darren Till MMA Record (18-2-1)

Till, from Liverpool, fights for the fight time since beating Kelvin Gastelum via split decision at UFC 244 in New York last November.

His 18-2-1 record is impressive, however it must be noted that his defeats have come in two of his last three fights.

He may be the slight underdog based on the betting, but he goes into this weekend's bout full of confidence following his impressive showing against Gastelum on his debut at 185lbs.
