UFC Fight Night 130 went down today (Sunday, May 27, 2018) from the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. The night was capped by a dynamite welterweight showdown between hometown hero Darren Till and former title challenger Stephen Thompson. The two engaged in a tightly contested striking battle for five rounds. Till was unable to land his vaunted left hand with authority until a brief fifth-round knockdown. Thompson countered effectively and circled out of danger, seeming to win at least three of the five rounds. But the judges gave it to Till unanimously.

The co-headliner saw Neil Magny battle Octagon newcomer and late replacement Craig White. Magny took care of business to maintain his standing in the welterweight division. He pulled White into a knee strike and battered the increasingly defenseless Brit for a first-round TKO.
