Top middleweight Darren Till has tried to crash UFC champion Israel Adesanya live Instagram chat with Ariel Helwani. The budding bromance between Adesanya and Till is no secret. The pair regularly exchange DMs with each other online.
In a recent interview between Ariel Helwani and Darren Till on IG live, the former welterweight title challenger tried to join the chat alongside Bellator star Dillon Danis.
Adesanya hilariously channeled his inner Jon Jones to troll Till.

“What’s up fatty,” Adesanya said to Till on IG live chat. “I love Darren, I love him like my *****….he knows, we DM each other back and forth…sending gifs and memes.”
“When his turn comes….his turn will come, but right now we are just frenemies. Keep your friends close but your enemies closer.” Adesanya concluded.
Former welterweight title challenger Darren Till is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244. He was then scheduled to fight Jared Cannonier at UFC 248 but the fight didn’t go as planned as Cannonier had to pull out following an injury. Till was serving as the back-up fighter for Yoel Romero vs Israel Adesanya.
On the other hand, Israel Adesanya is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Yoel Romero at UFC 248 earlier this month.
Israel Adesanya wants to fight Darren Till in London
Both fighters have expressed interest in fighting each other. Israel Adesanya said last month that he wanted to fight Darren Till in a stadium in London. He also said that it was a great stylistic match-up.
“We are cool, I like Darren. We already know we are going to fight one day, we will do it for the culture of fighting. That is a stylistic matchup that can’t be missed, not in this era,” Israel Adesanya said on Submission Radio. “It’s not going to get away from me. I like him, he’s a good kid. I think we get along very well.”
