stehilton94 Posted June 1, 2018 Report Share Posted June 1, 2018 (edited) Darren Till's fight vs Wonderboy was riddled with controversy due to his weight cut before the fight even happened. Till came in at 174.5 and then was forced to weigh in again during the day of the fight to make sure he did not go above 188lbs. He came back in at 187.5 and the fight went ahead. Till stated that he had an emergancy and had to put his cut on hold, his team released footage of his weight cut which clearly show Till in an extremely poor state during the weight cut. Till was clearly fatigued and at one point lost his eye sight due to dehydration. His team continued to allow him to try cut the weight knowing that he was basically destroying his own body. The commission has since responded to the release of the footage claiming that his corner should be suspended over the incident as "They're going to get him killed" What is your opinion on the situation? The video of the weight cut has been difficult to find due to Youtube continually removing it, I have found it and it does not appear to have much audio but shows the true damage of the weight cut https://streamable.com/nfiam - Weight cut video https://www.mmamania.com/2018/6/1/17416846/commission-wants-darren-tills-corner-suspended-over-grisly-weight-cut-going-get-him-killed-mma - Souce of commissions response Edited June 1, 2018 by stehilton94 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
