Darren Till and The Story so Far
Liverpudlian Darren Till made a big statement when he took out top ten ranked Donal ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 118. His brash pre-fight confidence had many guessing if he would be able to back up his words inside the cage at UFC Gdansk.
But back them up he did at 4 minutes 20 seconds into round one with a TKO stoppage over the favourite Cerrone. Having most definitely made a statement, the man from Merseyside quickly began to take aim at other fighters in his midst. Calling out Mike Perry, after the two had been previously scheduled to fight.
Soon after Till offered his services to face down top welterweight contender Stephen Thompson. So that in his words, he could show the world that he is the “superior striker.”
Unsure of the current options, who we wonder, will be next in line to test Till. He seems game to take on anyone, regardless of rankings. Simple wanting to prove to the world what he truly believes. That he is the best fighter in the world!
Only time will tell as we follow the career of Britain’s latest talent to make waves in the sport. With a rich history of fighters from which to draw inspiration. Where once it was dark, the future now looks bright.
