Darren Till is Willing to Take Island Fights, But Doesn’t See Events Happening in Near Future
By FCF Staff
If the UFC does hold events on a private island, as Dana White has said is the plan, Darren Till is willing to compete on one. But, the middleweight contender doesn’t believe the UFC will be holding any events for a little while yet.
One of the ways White hopes to hold UFC cards, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, is by hosting bouts on a private island. While talking on the Fight Disciples podcast recently, Till had this to say about fighting on an island (quotes via MMA Junkie).
“Do I think I’ll fight?” Till said. “I mean, yeah if they call it up and say, ‘Let’s do it. We’ve got the island open. We’ve agreed to it now. You’re going to be the fourth event against Whittaker.’ Yeah, I’ll fight. I can’t see any fights happening in the next three months. I don’t think we’ve even hit a proper lockdown yet. … Another few weeks and it’ll be one of them (orders) where you won’t be allowed to leave the house unless it’s essential.”
Till (18-2-1) hasn’t fought since November when he recorded a decision win over Kelvin Gastelum. The bout marked Till’s middleweight debut.
