The UFC interim welterweight champion Darren Till has made a bold statement that UFC 228 will be a failure without him. In a recent interview, Covington talked about how the UFC does not sell pay-per-views in the UK and that no one wants to watch Tyron Woodley compete.
Covington was in a conversation with BJ Penn Radio when he made these statements. He talked about how Wooldey has made his fortune due to PPV’s sold by Jon Jones and Conor McGregor. he also went on to claim that if he was fighting for the belt, he would have made the UFC at least 500,000 PPV buys. Here’s what he had to say:
They don’t sell f*cking pay per views in the UK [where Till is from], and obviously no one cares about Woodley. He always has to piggyback off Jon Jones, and piggyback off Conor McGregor, to make his money. So we know he can’t sell pay-per-views, so let’s be honest, this isn’t gonna do over 100,000 buys. They should have just waited for me. I would have easily got them 500,000 buys [if they had waited for me]. I’m a seller. I can promote. I know what I’m doing now, and I think they rushed it.
