As Jared Cannonier continues to climb the UFC’s middleweight ranks, the dangerous fighter’s confirmed he’d be interested in fighting Darren Till.

Cannonier has moved into the title shot mix at 185, as a result of consecutive wins over David Branch, Anderson Silva and Jack Hermansson. Till, meanwhile, recently moved up from welterweight and defeated middleweight contender Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244.

While speaking with Helen Yee recently, the former light-heavyweight had this to say about the possibility of fighting Till (quotes via MMA Junkie):

“I’ll fight him,” Cannonier said. “I’ll fight Darren – that’s a good fight. He just beat Kelvin. He’s ranked No. 5. I think I’ll fight pretty much everybody. I think a win over anybody in the top five, an impressive win over anybody in the top five – an impressive, dominant win over anybody in the top five – constitutes a title shot.

“He looked good. He looks very smart – intelligent fighter. He just shut Kelvin down at every turn. Any type of game plan Kelvin tried to implement, Darren Till shut it down and came out victorious.”

Cannonier is currently ranked #4 in the UFC’s middleweight division and Till is #5.
