Darren Till will finally get to fight at home in the UFC.

On Friday, the UFC officially announced an upcoming Fight Night card in Till’s hometown of Liverpool, England on May 27 with the top 10 ranked welterweight competing in the main event.

As of now, there’s still no word on Till’s opponent, but he will be headlining the card in Liverpool. Till has been anxious to fight in his hometown for quite some time so he definitely expects a raucous crowd for the UFC’s first show there in May.

“I can’t believe UFC is finally coming to Liverpool and I’m going to be headlining Echo Arena,” Till said “My name is going to be remembered in 200 years’ time for being part of this historical event and I can’t even describe how much that means to me.”

While Till is still awaiting word on his opponent, two more fights have been confirmed for the upcoming card in Liverpool.

England’s own Tom Breese will take on Daniel Kelly while Elias Theodorou travels across the pond from Canada to take on Trevor Smith in a pair of middleweight bouts.

Tickets for the Liverpool card will go on sale on April 13
