Darren Till Is Focused On His Career And Very Selfish Until September 8th! Darren Till is a man who knows how dangerous distraction can be. After being stabbed in the nightclub as a teenager, his coach advised him to move to Brazil and focus on his career. Still, The Gorilla has proven he is a distraction making specialist! Darren Till was present last weekend at UFC 227, where he held a media scrum. When he was asked about his family, he was clearly saying he didn\u2019t care for his daughter and pregnant girlfriend! He is focused on legacy and success. (via MMAFighting.com) \u201cYou can\u2019t have worries outside of this game,\u201d Till told reporters. \u201cI\u2019ve got a girlfriend who\u2019s seven months pregnant, I don\u2019t really care. I\u2019ve got a daughter in Brazil who I haven\u2019t seen for a year, I don\u2019t really care. I just care about legacy and greatness. That\u2019s what I\u2019m in this for.\u201d This controversial statement has probably made many of his fans angry. Yet, on the most recent episode of the Obviously Fight Talk podcast, Darren Till provided the different explanation. He says it was only a misunderstanding! The Gorilla says he is interested in the fight and nothing else until September 8th! \u201cIt\u2019s all about being selfish now until the eighth of September,\u201d Till said. \u201cIt\u2019s funny, I haven\u2019t even really read what people are saying but my girlfriend is sitting next to me right now, laughing. It comes to sort of right to stuff like that when my girlfriend is laughing and it\u2019s offending grown men and grown women. That\u2019s just funny s**t. It doesn\u2019t affect them.\u201d And now the most shocking part! Darren Till states his family understands his mentality and supports him! People made a big deal from his comments! The readers and listeners are mean, not him! They are not capable to understand what is required to become a legendary fighter! \u201cMe girlfriend and me daughter, they know what\u2019s what and she was right next to me when I was giving that interview and she was laughing. Some people just need to stop trying to be offended. All right, it might have come out as if I don\u2019t give two s**ts but right now, it\u2019s all about me until eighth of September. I have to be selfish enough. And after the fight, everyone knows, downtime, holidays, going to see me daughter. It\u2019s just people wanting to be offended. \u201cPeople just don\u2019t know . In five week\u2019s time, all my life\u2019s work will have led up to that one moment. 15 years in the making. I couldn\u2019t have got here without being selfish. I\u2019m working so hard and I\u2019ve had bumps in the road and there were many days where I didn\u2019t - there were some days I couldn\u2019t eat - because I just gave me whole life to this fight and now it\u2019s paying off. People just don\u2019t understand how it works, high level fighting. They look for any opportunity to be offended. It\u2019s just online trolls who just haven\u2019t got a clue.\u201d Darren Till is scheduled to fight Tyron Woodley on September 8 at American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas, for the UFC Welterweight title. What are your thoughts on his statements? Do you think The Gorilla sounded rude?
