Darren Till has responded after fellow UFC middleweight Uriah Hall suggested that he was “scared” to fight him.

Hall (17-10 MMA) was rumored to face Till (18-4-1 MMA) in the UFC’s return to London on March 19th. However, the bout never materialized and according to ‘Prime Time’ that is because Darren Till is “scared” to fight.

“I did, I wanted (to fight) him, but I think he’s just scared. I think he’s really scared. Either that, or he’s injured or some sh*t. He’s always making excuses. That’s how I look at him,” Hall told The Schmo in a recent interview. “He talks smack, but I know when I stand in front of him he’s gonna be quiet, so I know I can beat him. I just know I can beat him. He’s short, he sucks, he’s ugly, and I just know I can kick his ass.”

Darren Till clearly caught word of Uriah Hall’s comments and responded in kind on Twitter:

Darren Till continued:

“When I return you’ll get ur shot, I’ll be returning 100% not 50% so stay prepared… what’s wrong with me talking smack? I’ve always talked smack & always backed it up by fighting the best. If you want to fight just literally DM me & we can set it up. I have always DM’d all past opponents. Marvin, Derek, Whittaker, Gastelum, Masvidal, Wonderboy etc… DM me on Instagram my friend and we can see if u are still chatting that same shit…”

Darren Till last competed in September of 2021 where he suffered a submission loss to Derek Brunson. The setback marked his second in a row and fourth in his past five fights.

Hall, meanwhile, is scheduled to fight Andre Muniz on April 16, 2022.
