This time last week, Darren Till was on the verge of a career changing performance in Gdansk, Poland.
After defeating Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the first round of their welterweight main event last weekend, Till rose all the way to #8 in the UFC’s 170-pound rankings and sent shockwaves through the divison.
With some fighters like Mike Perry wasting little time calling him out, others have instead shied away from speaking about Till and his sudden rise up the ranks.
Speaking to the all new ‘The BBC MMA Show’ this week, Till gave his thoughts on how the other UFC welterweights had reacted to his win in Poland.
“I don’t really know how to take the welterweight division at the moment mate, Till said.
“I’m half considering going to light heavyweight because the welterweight division, they are just all, they’re just too easy. I dunno.”
If you think Till is joking you better think again. The man from Liverpool said there’s only one man he’d never not talk back to, but the rest, he’d happily fight.
“Let’s get one thing straight right, I ain’t afraid of one man on this earth,” Till said.
“There’s not one man that puts the fear of god into me.”
“There’s one man who I will never talk back to or anything and that’s Colin Heron. Apart from Colin there’s not a man on this earth that I fear.
“If anyone disrespects me I will fight them.”
Till then explained what makes his coach Heron so special:
“He is the most intelligent man I’ve ever met and the most honest human being I’ve ever met,” Till said. “That’s exactly why I’ve never met anyone like him in my life.”
