Undefeated Darren Till has the look and swagger of a superstar in the making. He is certainly making a name for himself since he made his UFC debut back in May of 2015. With a UFC record of 5-0 and a 16-1 record overall, Liverpool’s Darren Till has high hopes for 2018, where he sees championship belts coming his way.
Till is coming off a sensational first-round TKO of Donald Cerrone at UFC Gdansk last September, is now headlining his next bout at UFC Liverpool on May 27th.
Ranked #7 welterweight contender Till apparently sees a lot of similarities between him and UFC champ Conor McGregor. Both athletes have had similar rapid meteoric rises to stardom, apart from both southpaw European fighters, Till believes they have similar fighting style:
”I just think he lacks a bit of kicking, little bit of cardio, but you could put us in the same bracket in the fighting style,” Till told ESPN UK. “But I am better. I know I’m better.
”It’s not a disrespect to him or any other fighter out there in the world, to the best in the world — could be [Daniel] Cormier, the Jon Joneses, I just believe I am the best fighter.”
Darren Till has yet to fight for a belt but believes he is better in presenting himself than Conor Mcgregor.
”He looked more into marketing [than I am]; I don’t think I market myself,” Till said. “I’m just real. I just say what I think. I just write or post what I think.
”I don’t really care what anyone thinks or says about me. They don’t know me.”
Darren Till who is getting to work on an opponent for his upcoming bout at UFC Liverpool. He showed an interest in fighting with Stephen Thompson for quite some time, who is healing from a hand injury.
