Former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till affirms that he will become the UFC middleweight champion soon by defeating the champion Israel Adesanya.
Former welterweight fighter and the current middleweight contender Darren Till has always been known for speaking up his mind and has never backed away from putting up his future fighting plans out. Darren had his last title opportunity against former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. The fight was one-sided domination by Woodley as he defeated Till by submission in round two.
After that fight Till faced a rough patch in his career which made him move to the middleweight division. In his first fight at the middleweight, he defeated Kelvin Gastelum but after that, he met his match as he fought against the former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker against whom he lost the fight via decision.
Darren Till in his recent interview talked about the motivation he gets from the other champions in the UFC.
“I will take 20 losses, I will take 55 losses, I will take injury after injury after injury to get where I want to be,” Till said on The MMA Hour. “It’s good to see guys like Charles Oliveira, Jan Blachowicz … it’s good to see the types of guys do the things that they’re doing. Charles lost to [Donald] ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, and now he’s the champion. … I am prepared to do whatever it takes with me and my team. I have visualizations of winning that belt, [and] when Joe Rogan comes over to me with the mic, throwing the mic out of his hands and giving it to [my head coach] Colin [Heron] so he can give the speech that is needed.
“And I go out of the cage with my belt, let him have his speech, and I dump the belt on his desk the next day, and we continue,” Till continued. “I visualize all this, mate, but I believe it. With all the antics, that’s hyping fights, but don’t get it twisted, I don’t take this lightly. … I wake up every day and I put my soul, mind and body through hell and back.”
Till also stated that he will be the one to defeat Adesanya at middleweight and become the champion.
“Listen, good luck, good luck Izzy on your journey,” Till said. “He’s a fan of me, and I’m a fan of him. But I will be beating you, Izzy. I will be beating you, mate. You f*****g know it.”
