Darren Till Reacts To Critics

“It’s sh-t. It’s f—ng, I hate cutting weight, I hate making weight, I hate dieting,” Till told reporters (via MMA Fighting). “I’m gonna make this weight. So I can’t wait to [put up my middle fingers] when I step on them scales. I’m just, I’m in that moment now where I just. II don’t want to train anymore, I don’t want to eat good anymore.”

“I just wish I had a hamburger in front of me, but it’s all sacrifices and I made a mistake last time. I just can’t wait to say f—k you to everyone who just keeps babbling on about weight and, ‘He didn’t make weight, f—k Till.’ F—k them.”

“If Usman’s there and ready, and by some chance I miss weight entirely. Tyron said he wasn’t going to fight him, I saw, but it is what it is,” Till said. “They’ve got their back-up. Usman, they’ve told him, he’s doing what he’s told. So I’m just not arsed.”

“I’m just focused on Friday, making 170, and then Saturday, going in. And absolutely f—ng destroying Tyron Woodley. That’s all I’m focused on right now.”
