Darren Till Says Fight With ‘Childhood Hero’ Robbie Lawler Would Be ‘Spectacular’

While he is still undecided on his next weight class, Darren Till is more than open to a fight with former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler.

Till is coming off two consecutive defeats, both of which were finishes to Tyron Woodley and Jorge Masvidal. Lawler, meanwhile, was most recently outpointed by Colby Covington earlier this month. That makes it a three-fight losing skid for “Ruthless.”

It would then make sense for the two strikers to collide and attempt to get back on the win column. And given their styles, it’s a fight that would excite many in the combat sports world. Till is one of them:

“That’s a great fight, mate,” Till said. “I called Robbie out not so long ago and he’s a childhood hero; I grew up watching him. That would be spectacular, mate. It really would.”

However, any potential fight with Lawler hinges on Till remaining at 170 pounds. “The Gorilla” has struggled to make the weight as many have called for him to move up to middleweight.

While Till is still not sure which division he’ll be competing in next, he is certain about one thing — he will be back in the Octagon before Christmas:

“One hundred million percent, [I’ll fight] before Christmas,” he added. “I’m ready to go right now one hundred percent [I’ll be back] before Christmas.”

Are you excited by a potential Till vs. Lawler fight?

Former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till has further clarified all the rumors about his arrest in Spain earlier this year.

Following his knockout loss to Jorge Masvidal, Till took a long hiatus from social media. Then it was revealed in April that he was arrested in Tenerife, Spain, for not only reportedly trashing a hotel, but stealing a taxi as well along with his friends. He was later ordered to pay multiple fines.

However, the Liverpool native maintains he never stole the taxi in the first place:

“No I didn’t [steal a taxi],” Till said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “…It’s got to the point now where everyone just thinks I robbed the taxi so when people ask me, I just say, ‘I robbed it’ but I didn’t.

…I’m a very well known fighter but you know, you got to go about certain things in certain ways. I do have to be more responsible. I’m still getting used to the fact that wherever I go on planet Earth, I’m known by people and that’s quite scary.

Till claims he didn’t do much at all while he was in the Canary Islands. Rather, he was simply being exploited for who he was.

“As I said Ariel, sh*t happens,” he added. “It’s ups and downs. Spending them four days in them cells was no fun. Yes, I was arrested. …I had to pay a 15,000 pound fine. …[I did] f*ckall, really, Ariel.

In the hotel, there were a few fire distinguishers let off. There was a little bit of damage and they decided that was the fine. It wasn’t no way a 15,000 fine but I think they wanted to exploit me a little bit.”

As for his next fight, Till is waiting on an offer from the UFC. However, he is still unsure which weight class he will be competing in next.

Darren Till Undecided On Next Weight Class, Was Offered Mike Perry

Former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till is still undecided on which weight class he’ll be competing in next.

Till is coming off two losses — both of which were finishes — and the general opinion from mixed martial arts fans is that he should move up to middleweight to avoid the drastic weight cut.

Till has teased the move multiple times before, but when asked which weight class he would be competing in next, he responded:

“Nope, I have not [decided which weight class],” he said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on Monday. “I’m just focusing on getting better and being better. That’s the only thing, really. I haven’t got a fight yet, I haven’t got anything in mind. I think the goal right now, is to get better and evolve. I’m still only young in this sport and that’s my real goal right now.”

Till vs. Perry?

That said, it’s not like Till hasn’t been offered a fight. In fact, he was even offered a main event spot opposite Mike Perry for a proposed UFC Manchester event. However, it never came to fruition.

“It was just a few months ago and the UFC wants to make a main event in England,” Till revealed. “…They offered [Mike] Perry and they want to make a main event in Manchester and it was going to be this big thing and then it never came off and obviously, Perry had that amazing fight on Saturday, and that was that. That was the only thing what was talked with the UFC since my last fight, the loss to [Jorge] Masvidal.”

If Till is offered a fight now, though, he is more than likely to accept:

“As I said, if they ask me to fight right now in three weeks, I’m ready, more than ready. I’m fit and I’m strong. As I said, everyday is a new day, I’m getting better,” he added.
