Darren Till is looking lean and mean ahead of his Saturday night, UFC London headlining showdown with Jorge Masvidal.

In previous outings, the British striking specialist has had a difficult time cutting down to the 171-pound welterweight limit, even failing to do so a few times. This time around, however, he appears to have things well under control.

Darren Till flaunted his current physique in a Monday afternoon Instagram post (h/t on Twitter).

See it below:

This UFC London fight with Jorge Masvidal is a crucial one for Darren Till. This is will be his first outing since he was dominated by former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 228 in September, and he’ll need to perform well if he intends to re-enter the welterweight title discussion.

Prior to his failed title bid opposite Woodley, Darren Till was unbeaten in his first 18 mixed martial arts bouts, defeating Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Bojan Veličković and many others. The lone blemish in this unbeaten run was a 2015 draw with current CWFC welterweight champion Nicolas Dalby.

Here is the UFC London fight card as it currently stands.
