The fight is now targetted for April 10, and it is now almost certain that whoever will win, would go up against the winner of Whittaker Vs. Costa. The short tournament may produce the next No.1 contender, but could even turn out to be for the Interim title, depending on how current champion Israel Adesanya fares against Jan Blachowicz at UFC 259.
With the stakes so high in this semifinal of sorts, it is expected that both men will present their best foot forward, so, who will get the better of whom in this closely contested fight between the No.5 (Vittori) and No.4 (Till) ranked Middleweights, is a subject of intrigue.
