Darren Till has thrown his name in the hat to potentially replace Tyron Woodley against Robbie Lawler in the UFC on ESPN 3 headliner.

Just minutes after news broke that Woodley (19-4-1 MMA, 9-3-1 UFC) was out of next month’s welterweight main event rematch due to injury, Till (17-2-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC) took to social media to begin a campaign for a showdown with Lawler (28-13 MMA, 13-7 UFC).

The Brit said he’s all in on a matchup against the former UFC champion. But with only six weeks until the event, Till said he needs a cushion to make weight and suggested doing the fight at a catchweight of 175 pounds (via Twitter):

Yes @Ruthless_RL I’ll meet you at 175 in 6 weeks for a tear up
Yeno wa time it is

Triple Take: What will it take for Darren Till to get back on track after UFC London?

Till, No. 6 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie welterweight rankings, is coming off a knockout loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC on ESPN+ 5 in March. He found himself in some legal trouble afterward, but it appears he has his focus back on fighting with the offer to face No. 10 Lawler.
