Darren Till: I won’t be fighting at UFC London

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title contender, Darren Till, has become the most popular guy at 185 pounds, drawing callouts from the likes of Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier when he’s not busying messaging Israel Adesanya.

Unfortunately he won’t be fighting any of them, at least not at UFC London.

“Just had a hard session there with [my teammate] and just watching him put in his work for UFC London, 21st March,” Till said on Instagram. “So we’re all working hard even though I won’t be fighting. I’m still in here with the lads giving 100% of what they give to me in my camps as well. On the 21st, I’ll be there supporting.”

Don’t worry, he’s still getting a “top guy.”

After Whittaker withdrew from his Cannonier fight at UFC 248 (full details here), there was talk of putting Till against “The Killa Gorilla” in March; however, promotion president, Dana White, suggested a pre-existing injury was going to keep that fight from happening.

Which may or may not be promoter speak for “he wants more money.”
