Darren Till will look to get back in the win column and erase the memory of his loss to Tyron Woodley last year, as he gears up to face Jorge Masvidal this Saturday (March 16, 2019) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 147 in London, England.
Before then, let’s take a trip down memory lane to see one of “The Gorilla’s” most dominant wins inside the Octagon. Back in 2017, till found himself string down longtime veteran Donald Cerrone in his first-ever headlining bout at UFC Fight night 118.
Prior to the showdown, Till was confident in his chances against the fan-favorite. Once the fight began it was clear Till was the much bigger and stronger fighter, looking like a Middleweight as opposed to a 170-pound combatant.
Darren looked to use that to his advantage early, as he was the aggressor throughout, and managing to get up at will once Cerrone took it to the ground. Once on the feet, Till showed off his strength, handling Cerrone against the cage as he pleased. Surprisingly, “Cowboy” didn’t have an answer for Till in the striking department, as “The Gorilla” used his distance and reach perfectly.
With a minute left in the bout, Till connected with a clean and quick 1-2 combo that stunned Cerrone. Soon thereafter, Till picked up the pace with his attack, peppering “Cowboy” with shot after shot until he crumbled to the mat and the referee put an end to the punishment.
Now, Till will look to get a much-needed win when he takes on another hard-hitting brawler in Masvidal in a fight that should provide fireworks. For more on that ESPN+ – televised event click here.
