Last night, footage of Darren Till teeing off on a sparring partner hit the ‘net. While Till looks absolutely vicious in this footage, it did not take long for fans and pundits to begin criticizing him for taking things too far with a seemingly outmatched stablemate.
Darren Till has heard these criticisms, and he’s not particularly happy about them. Early on Monday morning, the British striking specialist took to Instagram to fire back at his detractors.
“For all you dumb cunts commenting on my previous video talking shit, saying that it’s bullying,” Till said in this statement. “Giving my training partner shit saying he is not worthy to be in there with me! We had a good few rounds together were he gave me a smack and I gave him one, it was a hard day and I feel I gave it my all and that previous video was a good clip of me landing some shots. All you internet fighters haven’t got a fucking clue so stick to internet fighting and leave the real fighting to us! Here is a video which I posted last December of me taking a smack! I post when I’m hitting and I post when I’m taking a smack, so keep talking shit!”
Darren Till will return to the Octagon on May 27, when he collides with fellow kickboxer Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in the main event of the UFC’s debut in his native Liverpool. This bout, which stands out as the biggest of his career, will serve as Till’s chance to build on the momentum of a massive, first-round knockout of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, and keep his flawless record in tact. Till is a fantastic 16-0-1 overall, the only blemish on his record being a 2015 draw with Nicolas Dalby.
