Darren Till has silenced any concerns about him pulling out of his UFC 282 matchup against Dricus Du Plessis.

‘The Gorilla’ has had five fights canceled in the last two and a half years for one reason or another. Therefore, when a photo of Till’s eye being injured surfaced on social media, some fans and analysts were concerned about the former title challenger being forced to withdraw from UFC 282.

Former UFC fighter Chael Sonnen was one media member concerned about Till’s eye injury, leading to a YouTube video discussing the topic. ‘The Gorilla’ saw the video and had this to say about Sonnen while doing an interview with Michael Bisping:

“You know me Mike, I just do posts and don’t think about it, and Chael Sonnen starts saying, ‘This is like an indicator Till is gonna pull out the fight. I’m like, ‘Chael, shut the f**k up mate with your little podcast’ because lad, he’s scared of me, Chael, cause I threatened to put his number up like I did Ariel’s (Helwani). No one wants smoke with Till, no one wants that.”

Darren Till explained the origin of his eye injury

During the same interview with Michael Bisping, Darren Till explained the eye injury situation by saying:

“We were wrestling, and I was wrestling this big guy, and he’s f*cking great,” Darren Till said. “I shot in for a takedown, and I swear Mike, his finger went to the back of my brain. I felt it hit my brain, I felt sick. Immediately I couldn’t see, blood was pouring out of it, and I was like, ‘No, I’m gonna carry on wrestling,’ and everyone was looking like, ‘He’s f*cking mad. Get him off the mat.’”

‘The Gorilla’ is looking to get back on track at UFC 282. Till began his UFC tenure with a 5-0-1 record before losing four of his last five fights against top contenders. The former UFC title challenger has an opportunity to flip the script against Dricus Du Plessis, who is riding high on a 3-0 UFC record. 

Till has always had the skills to become a world champion. The question is, can he stay healthy and string together some wins to earn a middleweight title shot? UFC 282 will provide more clarity.
