UFC middleweight Darren Till and Robert Whitiker headlined a technical battle this past weekend. Both fighters suffered damage and neither came out of the firefight unscathed.
Darren Till suffered a knee injury during the fight and was verified by a visit to the doctor’s office, according to Till’s coach.
“Torn MCL, doctors are amazed he was able to stand up for the last three rounds,” Heron said. “He is in a cast for six weeks then we’ll reassess. Hopefully, it will start to knit while immobilized.”
Till predicted that he had blown at his knee at the post-fight press conference.
“In the second round, he knee-stomped me … and it just blew my knee (out),” Till said. “My knee just went (out) under me. It crashed. That was it then for the whole fight. I just had to stay static and sort of just fight on it.”
Till took to Instagram to thank his supporters and haters.
What a week!
Just reflecting on my chess match of a fight with rob?
Enjoyed the competition,
Few things I hesitated on & should of capitalised.
It was a close close match as everyone said,
You could of gave it 3-2 me, 3-2 rob?
Either way is completely right I feel!
The 5th round the takedowns maybe didn’t count because I sprung back up each time therefore nullifying them…
But I ain’t crying over spilled milk.
Rob’s a terrific fighter & hats off to him,
We will get it done again.
As for me!
I’ve got some time off from a certain knee from a certain someone… rob? 😂
I told you all before this fight that I’m just getting started and I meant it…
I’m going to become the world champion
I’m going to become a legend &
I’m going to become a role model for young aspiring fighters everywhere.
As soon as I’m back this year I want to fight 2-3 times as quick as I can…
Thanks for the support, thanks for the hate.
Thanks for everything!!

Thank you my team, my family & my friends for the support,
