Darren Till Claims 2018 is the Year He Becomes UFC Champion

Recommended Posts

We’ve all been waiting to see who Darren Till will fight next after his impressive performance against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. Talks of opponent after opponent came and went and so did 2017, but this new year promises to be the Scouser’s year. According to this latest interview, he’s got some big plans and envisions himself becoming UFC welterweight champion before 2019. It seems like the big first step to that is fight with Stephen ‘Wonderboy’

Thompson which was rumored earlier last year.

 

“It’s a great honour to be honest [to be named UFC’s Breakthrough Fighter of the Year]. My name is all over the world now – it’s great recognition and this is extra special since it’s the fans that voted for it. It’s really taken off in the past few months. I was off for the whole of 2016 [with injury], but obviously I came back last year and I had two good wins before I took [Donald] Cerrone out in the first round. People are starting to think I’m the next big thing in MMA and they’re not wrong.”

 

“I’ll be champion by the end of the year. Last year was great, but 2018 is going to be huge. We’ve already got something big in the pipeline. 2018 is going to be the year of the first Scouse champion, I can feel it. I just know it’s going to be my year. I fancy that fight [with Stephen Thompson]. He’s the No 1 contender so if I beat him then that’s an automatic title shot and by the end of the year I’ll be champion, so we’ll see what happens. I don’t know what happened with [Mike] Perry. He’s booked another fight, so he’s missed his chance because I’d said I’d still fight him even though he lost. I’m the biggest name in the welterweight division now, so I can just sit back and choose who I fight.” — Darren Till speaking to Boxing News 24.

 

The hype behind a potential fight between Darren Till and Mike Perry faded as Perry lost and was booked against someone else. Gunnar Nelson is still waiting on a shot to fight Till, but prospect seems to have his eyes on bigger and better fighers.

 

Who do you want to see him fight next?

He loses to everybody in the top five. Tyron would kill him.

 

A lot of tough fights there for him think Lawler would be perfect though.

Lawler has a torn knee ligament. Darrell is going to have to take a tougher fight than that.

 

Hey you said top 5 I would be going for the guy with the bum knee lol

 

Hope they keep him and Colby apart till ones had a title shot.

If anything, Colby and Darrell need to fight to make sure one of them has a semi-acceptable resumee when they get fed to Woodley.

Bar RDA who's left that you want to see Woodley fight?

 

Till and Colby could be his challengers this year so I hope they book it the right way.

He didn't just beat him... HE KILLED HIM.  I was there and Jake was out cold for 5 straight minutes.

Seriously fool.  Platinum Mike Perry ended Jake's career.  He will never fight again.  Trust me on that.

 

Ellenberger was on his way out I don't taker too much from a guy who'd lost 6 of his last 8.

 

It was a cracking knockout don't get me wrong but if he'd lost that I wouldn't even still be hearing this platinum drivel lol.

But?!

 

But what?!

 

HE ENDED HIS CAREER.  Wonderbread Thompson got floored by Jake and didn't lay him out cold.  They gave that idiot 2 title shots and he doesn't even sell tickets.

Platinum drops a 29-28 in which he breaks the 2 to 1 favorite's face and he's just a can.  We get it.

Where do you put Perry in the WW ranking?

Are people really arguing that Jake Ellenberger wasn't on the way out the door going into the fight with Mike Perry? In his last 8 fights he got whooped by anyone with a W/L ratio higher than 50/50 in the last 5 years. He was even beaten by the mighty Tarec Saffiedine! Saffiedine hasn't won a single match since....

 

"Ended Jake's career" would be a worthwhile statement if Jake wasn't obviously picking up his final paychecks before retirement. It was more like taking the old, sickly horse out back & finally put a bullet in it.

Kid got huge potential but needs to pump the breaks.

 

He still needs to fight other dudes other than 2017 Cerrone. I say throw at him names like Masdival, Wonderboy and even Maia for that mattter.

He would be the champ by the end of the year and then he moves up to 185 pounds.

This will happen, if everybody above him in the rankings dies in a plane crash.

Stranger things have happened, Bisping became champ.

 

In all honesty I think the thing Till has going for him is the push, they seem keen to get his name out there and this is new fc.

I like this and selfishly would like to see Till get a higher ranked opponent than someone like Gunni. I would like to see him fight in Brazil again as well because of his story but want him on that march 17th card. Colby is a little ****, Ponz would be good.

Never been UK but even Floyd Mayweather had to find a way out of the UK alive.

A reference to the McGregor presser or his Hatton one? I couldn't give two ****s about Conor anymore but Ricky is the epitome of being English and a absolute legend.
