UFC 244 results: Darren Till defeats Kelvin Gastelum despite terrible eye poke – but fans love how Gorilla reacted

Darren Till snapped his two-fight losing streak with a win on his middleweight debut at UFC 244.

The Liverpudlian defeated Kelvin Gastelum via split decision 27-30, 30-27, 29-28 in the co-main event of UFC’s card at Madison Square Garden.

However, the fight could have been stopped when Till took a seriously bad gauge to his eye.

It was totally unintentional from Gastelum, but the action replays don’t make for pretty watching.

Take a look at the video below:

However, it was Till’s reaction that fans were really impressed with as the 26-year-old told the referee he didn’t want to take a break – let alone consider a disqualification – and he wanted to fight.

On a card where UFC were trying to determine the baddest motherf*cker on the planet, Till proved he was a bad, bad man himself.

As you can imagine, Twitter loved it:

Many people suggested that taking on a dangerous striker like Gastelum wasn’t smart for Till in his middleweight debut, but Till has immediately inserted himself in the top six fighters or so with that win.

He did it by nullifying the California-native and leading with kicks to the legs. Till was the sharper fighter, but it was far from the sexiest performance of his career.
