Darren Till puts the ‘scared rats’ at 170 pounds on blast

After a minor setback against Tyron Woodley at UFC 228 in September 2018, Darren Till is set to return against Jorge Masvidal in March at UFC Fight Night 147, also known as UFC Fight Night on ESPN+ 5. The event goes down at the O2 Arena in London with Till as the headliner, cementing “The Gorilla” as the UFC’s great British hope for keeping UK fans tuned into the sport now that Michael Bisping is gone.

And just like Bisping, Till is a unique character that isn’t always the most politically correct. In a middle of the night Twitter rant, Till went off in standard Till fashion, calling everyone who ducked the London fight against him wankers and other things best not written on a site with respectable advertising. But we can embed the tweets! And they’re best enjoyed by imagining Till reading them out loud in his thick Liverpudlian accent.

Unfortunately for Darren Till, the competition doesn’t get easier the further down the list of welterweights he goes. Masvidal is a tough test for anyone, and Darren may need a little more of that home country cooking like he got in the “Wonderboy” fight if he hopes to leave with his undefeated UK record intact.
