The bromance between Mike Perry and title challenger seems to be growing after they settled their differences in a sparring session in Los Angeles, California. The spar was reported to be friendly and both Till and Perry claim to have found respect for each other.
Till is scheduled to fight Tyron Woodley for the UFC Welterweight title and Mike Perry had some tips for Till against the champion.
“I did man [give him some tips] because, I mean, just the way that I see it, with fighting against a shorter fighter, Darren stands rather tall and I said I think he needs to get down and bend his knees,” Till said.
“He needs to get his eyes on the same level as ‘T-Woodley’s’ I mean he’s got a good turn away from the takedown and the shot, but you know, [I said] ‘I’m not trying to give you advice because you’re the one fighting the champ, but the way that I think I see it, I think maybe you could do this some more; bend your knees some more and get lower sometimes.
“I know you’re going to do what you do and fight confidently and I’m sure T-Woodley will do too. Who really knows!? Who knows. I just hope those boys make that weight so they can fight for that damn thing.”
