Darren Till unleashes the most expletive ridden post-fight interview in UFC history
Darren ‘The Gorilla’ Till earned the biggest victory of his MMA career to date against Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson at UFC Liverpool, then launched in to an expletive-ridden tirade in his post-fight interview putting the entire UFC welterweight division on blast.
The bout looked unlikely to happen after Saturday’s weigh-ins, with Till weighing in at 174.5lbs, 3.5lbs over the weight limit for welterweight. A deal was struck between the two men that Thompson would get a portion of his opponent’s purse, and Till had to weigh in at no more than 188lbs just hours before the fight. This time, Till came within the agreed weight and the fight went ahead.
Till narrowly scraped past the karate stylist Thompson, doing enough in the eyes of the judges to earn a controversial five-round unanimous decision. The fight saw both men engage in cautious striking exchanges, with the competitors clearly respecting each other’s technical ability and sizeable knockout power.
Despite concerns for his cardio, Till rallied throughout the contest, enjoying his best success in the final round as he knocked Thompson down, coming close to getting the finish, in the final minutes of the fight.
Commentator Dan Hardy asked Till in his post-fight interview who he wanted to face next and The Gorilla, set his raucous hometown crowd into a frenzy by replying emphatically:
“F**king everyone and anyone, I don’t care, I’m not scared of anyone – No-one. You had people asking me, you might deserve a title shot after this fight, no I f**king won’t, I haven’t beat anyone, I need to beat all these all these c*nts, they’re all getting it.”
Many didn’t even get chance to hear what Till replied as BT Sport in the UK censored almost the entire speech.
Prior to the fight Till was ranked #8 in the UFC welterweight division but a win against #1 ranked Thompson will have undoubtedly left him as one of the top contenders for the next title shot.
