UFC welterweight title contender Darren Till recently found himself in the midst of a controversy, as he made some comments about how he does not care for his family and is only focused on winning the title. He had later clarified and explained his comments and how they were taken out of context. Former UFC middleweight champion Michael “The Count” Bisping has now come out in support of his fellow countryman and has claimed he understands what Till’s comments meant.
Bisping recently discussed Till’s comments on his Believe You Me podcast. He claimed that Till meant to say that he is solely focused on winning the belt right now but he does care about his family. Here’s what Bisping had to say:
What he’s saying is, right now his mission, his quest in life, is to be the best fighter in the world, win the world title and go down in history, Of course he loves his daughter. Of course he wants to see her. What he’s saying is, ‘Right now, I’m fighting for the title. I’ve got a seven-month pregnant girlfriend. I don’t give a f*ck. I’ve got a kid down there I never see. I don’t give a f*ck. The only thing that matters in my life right now is winning the belt. Maybe the choice of words were not the smartest, not the best, but that’s what he’s saying. If you read between the lines. He’s not saying that he doesn’t give a f*ck about his daughter. Even though that’s exactly what he does say. That’s not what he’s saying. What he’s saying is it matters so much to him.
