Fresh off respective wins over Donald Cerrone and Jorge Masvidal, Darren Till and Stephen Thompson will collide this February.

UFC president Dana White confirmed plans for the fight during an interview Tuesday night.

The card was expected to take place from Orlando, but will be moved to Till’s “hometown,” according to Lance Pugmire of the LA Times.

Till, from Liverpool, England, is unbeaten in both MMA and kickboxing. He improved to 16-0-1 with a first round finish of Cerrone in October to go along with 44 wins in kickboxing without a defeat.

Thompson (14-2-1) got back on track after a decision loss to Tyron Woodley for the welterweight title this past March, topping Masvidal at UFC 217.
