Darren Till Teases a Move Up From ‘Too Easy’ Welterweight Division

Everyone doubted Darren Till but himself and his coaches, now he’s put his detractors and the entire welterweight division on notice. He’s skyrocketed in the rankings and has his eyes on potential fights with Mike Perry and Stephen Thompson, but it doesn’t stop there. Darren Till may eventually be destined for a jump all the way to light heavyweight. We’d never call his bluff after his performance against Donald Cerrone, but joking or not, Till is a big welterweight.

“I don’t really know how to take the welterweight division at the moment, mate. I’m half considering going to light heavyweight because the welterweight division — they are just all, they’re just too easy. I don’t know, mate. […] I was just telling [Mike Perry at UFC Gdansk] that he’s a little tiny lightweight and to get back to his own division. Stop trying to mess with these light heavyweights. Back and forth, innit? I love causing mayhem. I love having beef with everyone.”

“Let’s get one thing straight right, I ain’t scared of one man on this Earth. There’s not one man on Earth that puts the fear of God in me. There’s one man who I will never talk back to or anything and that’s [my coach] Colin Heron. Apart from Colin there’s not a man on this Earth that I fear and if anyone disrespects me I will fight them. I just want to fight anyone. I don’t care.” — Darren Till on The BBC MMA Show.

It feels like there’s no time to sit back and enjoy the accomplishment of taking out such a big name like Donald Cerrone. Especially with the stack of contenders ahead of Darren Till, although he skipped over about seven of them with his win. No matter which division or what fighter it may be though, it’s guaranteed there will be plenty of eyes on Darren Till’s next fight.
