Daniel Cormier apologizes to Darren Till following misunderstanding on Twitter: “I am sorry I was drunk”

By Zain Bando - August 15, 2022

Daniel Cormier and Darren Till got into a hilarious argument on Twitter late Saturday night after UFC San Diego had already concluded. Till, a UFC middleweight and former welterweight title challenger, likes to stir the pot every so often. This exchange with a Cormier, a former UFC double-champion, was no different.

Daniel Cormier, UFC

Since his retirement in 2020, Cormier has remained active within the UFC as a color commentator and analyst for ESPN on various UFC Fight Night shows and pay-per-view cards. Cormier also hosts a weekly show with former Super Bowl champion, Ryan Clark, called “DC and RC,” across ESPN platforms.

As for Till, he is trying to work his way back towards a title shot in a new weight class. He is currently ranked No. 9 in a division that features the likes of Israel Adesanya, Paulo Costa, Marvin Vettori, and Robert Whittaker, to name a few.

The entire Twitter thread, which spans a couple of messages, shows Till hilariously requesting that Cormier shouldn’t commentate the UFC 280 main event between Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev for the lightweight title.

Cormier’s reply was literally taken seriously to the eventual clap-back of Till.


“I forgot who I was talking to,” Cormier wrote. “I am sorry. I was drunk, lol.”

Cormier’s commentary has sometimes been deemed as biased, but nevertheless, the former double-champ loves to have a good time every once and a while, and who can blame him, right?

Till has won one of his last five outings and currently does not have a fight booked at press time. Who he will fight still remains to be seen, but regardless, Till remains a funny character around the MMA space.

For Cormier, however, this is just another day for the new Hall of Famer in 2022.
