The UFC welterweight contender Darren Till scores the biggest win of his career at the UFC Fight Night 130 main event after defeating two-time title challenger Stephen Thompson by unanimous decision.
The contest was close, and many have suggested that Till had massive hometown advantage making history in his hometown.
Thompson believes if the contest were organized on the US soil, he would have got the nod from the judges, and rising star Till has now responded to his opponent’s criticism and keen to erase any doubt about judging bias by offering Wonderboy a rematch. (via SportsJoe.ie)
“I know Stephen said he needs to check his knee and that, but you’ve got all these experts out here saying this, saying that because it was in Liverpool. If anyone wants me to America and fight Stephen again, Stephen definitely wants it and he’s not injured, I can do that as soon as possible. That rematch.”
“Obviously, there are other guys that I want to fight as well. but let’s show all these critics. It’s probably going to be the same fight, definitely going to be the same outcome again. Maybe I can be more aggressive and knock him out this time. You’ll see. That’s what I’m thinking.”
UFC president Dana White revealed the possibility of Darren Till challenging for the title during the UFC Liverpool Post-Fight Press Conference that he wants Till’s next fight in Vegas. But if you ask Till, Tyron Woodley, Rafael Dos Anjos or Colby Covington are not next on his radar rather he’s interested in Kamaru Usman during his talk with Megan Olivi.
Anyway, how many of you want to see Thompson vs. Till rematch next?
