UFC 228 featured an interesting match up as welterweight champ Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley made his return to take on Darren ‘The Gorilla’ Till.

What was thought to be an exciting matchup on paper turned out to be an extremely lopsided second round submission victory for champ Tyron Woodley. Woodley rocked Till on the feet was chocked him on the ground and handed Till the first loss of his professional career.

Till, who is known for his unwavering confidence and self-belief, was definitely heart broken by the loss but handled it in a classy way. Till said his quest to become the greatest fighter of all time will continue no matter what.

“It just hurts because I got there, I was nearly there to do what I set out to do, get that belt and be the greatest,” Darren Till said (transcript via MMA Fighting). “I am still gonna be the greatest, I know that.”

“All the greats have lost. That’s my first loss tonight and just right now I’m still okay, but I’m just upset. There’s no sugarcoating it.”

“Listen, there will probably be another loss. But as I say, I am still going to be the greatest fighter of all time, I know I am. This doesn’t change anything. It’s just I can’t lie to you right now. I’m upset, I’m broken. I’m hurt tonight, I’m a hurt person.”

Till, at just 25 years of age, certainly has a lot of time to accomplish whatever the sport has to offer. With his future plans of moving up to middleweight, he certainly has many options left as well.
