UFC Middleweight contender Darren Till recently spoke to ESPN. The scouse fighter discussed a number of topics during the interview, including a potential Championship fight down the line with Israel Adesanya.
‘I think me and Marvin are knocking on the door,’ Till said to ESPN ahead of his Fight Night clash with Vettori in April. ‘It’s like a little mini-middleweight competition right now, the same as lightweight, so it definitely excites me. To just be at the top and to be getting these chances and knowing what’s next and all that ’“ but I’ve got a steamroller in front of me, and I don’t want to look too far ahead.”

“I know Izzy’s calling me out, practically, and stuff like that” Darren Till continued. “I’ve called him out for a long time. We were destined to fight even when I was a welterweight. He called me out then, when I was at the top of welterweight.”
‘Right now, I’m just focused on myself,’ Till continued. ‘I’m doing my own thing. But this is the thing: I think it’s one of these fights with me and Izzy, I think it’s magician vs. magician. Who’s got, like, the Kryptonite to beat the other guy’s striking, you know? I’ve said it for the longest time, I’m one of the best strikers in the UFC. And I think Izzy is definitely there. He could be ahead the way’s he’s been fighting ’“ he’s ahead of me right now.’
