UFC: Darren Till responds to Woodley calling him 'Light Work' - Darren Till

Darren Till isn’t too happy with UFC Welterweight Champion calling him ‘light work’ for his opponent Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. Tyron Woodley recently predicted Stephen Thompson to win easily against Darren Till in the main event of UFC Fight Night 130 in Liverpool, England. Darren Till who is a rising star in the company after his first round knockout of Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and will face a considerable step in competition with the two time challenger Stephen Thompson. Darren Till is very confident about the fight and does not put much stock in Woodley’s words.

“I couldn’t really give a (expletive) about what Woodley says,” Till said. “What does light work actually mean? I don’t know what that means. Is any fight light work? Is he trying to say I’m light work? That just doesn’t make any sense. To me that doesn’t make any sense at all. No one is light work at all. So he can tune in the 27th of May if he thinks anyone is going to make light work of me. I’m going to show everyone.”

How this fight came about

Darren after the win over Cowboy was campaigning for many ranked fights although many of the top ten fighters were booked against each other. When Wonderboy was offered, Till was glad to accept.“They were wanting to book me against a good striker so we could have a good war and give the fans a good fight,” Till said. “We talked about (Jorge) Masvidal, but he wasn’t ready. Then they had plans with (Rafael dos Anjos) and Colby (Covington) then (Kamaru) Usman and (Santiago) Ponzinibbio. Then (Demian) Maia and (Robbie) Lawler were out. So I just saw it coming. Then I got the announcement from the UFC. I asked for the fight, and I got it.”

 

Not getting the top billing in his hometown

Even though the fight is in Darren Till’s hometown of Liverpool, he will be getting the second billing due to the fact that Wonderboy is ranked above him, but that does not bother Darren.I don’t think I deserve to walk out last,” Till said. “He is who he is, and he’s the No. 1 contender for a reason. I don’t mind being out first, even in my town. I just think respectfully he deserves to come out last. Stuff like that it doesn’t matter. He’s the blue corner, but it doesn’t matter. So respectfully it’s only right that he walks out second.”
