Darren Till is all set to take on Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson in the main event of UFC Liverpool tonight. While the fans have been extremely excited at the prospect of watching two of the best strikers currently in MMA going head-to-head, their excitement took a massive hit yesterday at the weigh-ins, as Till attempted a dodgy weigh-in keeping only one foot at the scale and still missing weight by 3.5 pounds. Thompson has still accepted the fight, at least for now. Till will weigh-in again today and should not be over 188 pounds for the fight to happen. Amidst this entire controversy the Scouser has now finally come out and given a statement. Till feels that there are no excuses for missing weight and he is embarrassed by it.

Here’s what he told MMA Junkie:​

There’s never no excuse for missing weight, I always say it: When you fight, and you lose a fight, there’s no excuse. You lose. Same with the battle with the scales. This time I lost, and there’s no excuse. I know that the UFC said why I missed and gave some information. When I started cutting weight I got an emergency call. It was a family matter. I just had to go to the hospital there and back. I only had five kilos (11 pounds) to go. Usually I have six, seven. I was running. I was OK. I was fine. And I tried to get in the sauna, tried to get in the steam, I tried to do a bath. It just wasn’t happening. I was knackered.

I missed weight, and I’m truly embarrassed by it, but the fight’s still on hopefully. I’ve got to weigh in again tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes. I know they’re very adamant I’ve got to weigh a certain weight. The ball’s in their court.

Eighty-five kilo tomorrow morning is not enough. It’s not that it’s not enough. I just put weight on so quick. I’ve got a slow metabolism. I just started drinking before, and it went up like that. So, we’ll see. It could be a mind game. If I have to make the weight, I’ll make it

I missed weight my own doing. My own fault. But the family emergency, we’ll see what happens. Tomorrow I just want to fight, get that done with and start my rise again.
