Take a listen to Darren Till’s uncensored post-fight victory interview

The censors rightfully bleeped out pretty much everything the Liverpool native said after his win over Stephen Thompson.

If you had a hard time hearing Darren Till’s post fight victory speech at UFC Fight Night 130, you weren’t alone. Due to a combination of Till’s potty mouth and an overused censor button, many people didn’t hear much other than poorly mixed crowd noise as the Liverpool native shouted who knows what to his adoring fans.

Fortunately, we have Till’s uncensored words as he rode the high of defeating Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in front of his home crowd.

“F**king get in,” Till said. “Yes, I played games in there. I know Stephen thinks I’m a very aggressive fighter. I am, but I’m a very calm, collected, aggressive fighter. I knew with Stephen I didn’t even throw my left hand the whole fight because he’s so f**king good at moving in, moving out. You got to be aware of his kicks, so I thought if I land, I’ll finish him. But I’m going to show him that my Muay Thai is just as good as karate!”

“He’s a phenomenal striker. In all my life of fighting, I’ve been fighting since I was thirteen, I’ve never fought a striker like that. I had to use every part of my brain to figure him out because even one lucky left hand maybe edged it, but it was like that, f**king amazing!”

“All you doubters, who the f**k is doubting me now?” he finished. “No one! No one!”

Dan Hardy asked who he wanted to fight next and he didn’t hesitate to put the whole welterweight division on notice.

”F**king everyone, anyone, I don’t care,” he said. “I’m not scared of anyone! No one! You had people asking me ‘You might deserve a title shot after this fight.’ No! I haven’t beaten anyone until I’ve beaten all these c**ts. They’re all dead!”

Afterwards at the post fight press conference, Till responded to a media question on whether he’d try to tone down the profanity in the future.

”No, it’s just a word,” he said. “It’s an expression of how passionate I am. Every time I go for interviews, ‘Till, can you not say this or not say that’ and I say ‘Maybe, I don’t know’ and then it comes out like Tourrettes.”

”They have a choice, they can have me on or not,” he continued. “It’s no skin off my nose. I don’t want to be a celebrity. You can give me an interview or you can’t, I don’t care. It’s just an expression, I’m so passionate about it I don’t think and swear words just come out of me. Maybe I might have to tone it down, but ... I’m not going to. C**t. Whoops, sorry.”

Here’s the full post-fight victory interview, with bleeps intact.
