Top UFC welterweight prospect Darren Till has claimed that there is no one currently in the welterweight division who can beat him, not even the champion Tyron Woodley. There is some hearsay that the UFC might go ahead and strip Colby Covington of his interim title and will let Till challenge for Woodley’s belt instead. In a recent interview given to noted combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani’s show, Till made the following remarks about Covington blowing away his shot at gold and how he wants to prove that he is currently the best fighter out there.
Here’s what he had to say:
I believe Colby has missed his opportunity, It is a sad situation. It’s unfortunate for Colby. He is the rightful owner of the interim belt. He beat [Rafael] dos Anjos, but sometimes you can’t have your cake and eat it.
He wanted everything on his terms, the UFC didn’t want that, so he’ll have to sit out now.
You just can’t talk all that much shite about how you’re going to beat this champion, you beat him in sparring and whatever, and then the champ responds, Woodley responds, and the fight just sort of flutters off into the air,
It doesn’t seem to work like that. As soon as Colby beat dos Anjos, Woodley called Colby out. That was there, that was made, Woodley was game, and it just doesn’t happen. So there’s the second guy, me, Darren Till. I’m ready, so that’s all I think about. I don’t give a f*ck about any of that sh*t. I just want to go in there on the 8th of September and prove why I’m the best fighter alive right now
Right now, there’s not a man in that [welterweight] division who can f*cking beat me,” he said. “There’s just not a man. And it’s certainly not Woodley.
