UFC 228: Tyron Woodley vs Darren Till Betting Odds

For the very first time in over a year, the welterweight name will be on the line as Tyron Woodley yields to defend his belt against Darren Till at UFC 228 in Dallas, Texas on September 8. The winner, who has not fought because UFC 214 in July of 2017, started as the -1300 favorite attempting to hand the undefeated challenger his first career loss as Till came back in EVEN chances.
This is the third straight fight that Till has become the underdog, and of course, he’s been successful in both of these previous scraps, including a unanimous decision over former title challenger Stephen Thompson. “The Gorilla” has had trouble on the scales because he weighed in at 174 pounds in his final fight and also weighed in at 176 lbs three struggles prior — the 170-pound limitation may be an issue for the challenger. Woodley was a favored in each of the last two fights, and it seems that because he won the belt at UFC 201, he’d rather hold on to it instead of seeking the finish. A mindset like that contrary to Till could get him in trouble.
