After 3 losses on the bounce in the UFC, Darren gave an honest assessment of the one thing he needs to improve, before getting back in the Octagon.

Darren till said, “I’ve got to work on the aggression factor. In the gym I’m so aggressive. When I got into the Du Plesis fight I had him flinching a lot in the second round and I could see he was terrified. I really should’ve stopped him there and then with the power I carry. But for whatever reason I couldn’t pull the trigger and really let it go. So in my mind there’s got to be some mental things I’ve got to work on and tweak a bit.”

I was dying, A nightclub security guard brought me back to life

Darren recounts the night he was stabbed outside a nightclub in Liverpool, in a moment that changed his life and set him on a path to the UFC.

Darren Till said, “There was a time when I was training at my gym in Liverpool when I was struggling to make money and I was sort of on both sides of the law you could say. It was not a good place to be but I was a terrific fighter and my coach always knew that. I got into a situation in a nightclub where a fight broke out and I got stabbed twice in my ribs.

I think the blade was centimeters from a major artery and if it had hit that it would’ve seen me bleeding out and dying. To cut a long story short I remember sitting outside the club and seeing a light. I’m not a big believer in God but in that moment I remember thinking it must be my time to go. But a security guard from the club stuck his fingers in the wound and he brought me back. It was a brutal moment but it changed my life for the better in the long term.

I’d say yes to boxing a YouTuber

Darren Till said, “I’d have to say yes {to boxing a YouTuber}. That’s where the money is. Even if maybe I didn’t really want to, because it’s tough to turn it down financially. Close your eyes and say yes and sign on the dotted line!”

I’d fight in the PFL one day, for the cheddar!

Darren Till said, “I could go and make some money in PFL one day. It’s absolutely growing so big right now. Brendan Loughnane obviously just won a million dollars and the PFL World Championship. They’re getting to sign some big names right now even from the UFC. So that could happen.”

On the news that PFL fights get 50% PPV revenue: “If they’re getting the cheddar then fair play to them! He’s got everyone talking about him and you’ve got to respect it whether he can really fight or not.”
