UFC news: Darren Till insists he was ‘blind drunk’ when he called out Yoel Romero

Darren Till accomplished a lot with his victory over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244.

Not only did he halt his two-loss skid, bus he also made a successful start to life as a middleweight and against a former champion in Kelvin Gastelum.

The Liverpudlian is now looking forward to his next bout, but the top five at middleweight are all tough, tough fights.

Till, 26, called out Yoel Romero a few weeks ago, a man he has already publicly labelled as ‘scary’.

He didn’t really mean to, though, he was just hammered.

“I was blind drunk,” Till told MMAUK. “Yes, so my friend opened up a great bar in Liverpool, we got invited to the opening and I was celebrating the win,” Till said. “I was with the guys and I said, I had a few beers and said, ‘watch this.’ So, I went onto Google, I’ll get an image of Yoel, ’cause he is a scary dude, I said I’ll post that. He was like really bro? I said why not, let’s start a little controversy. So, I tagged him let’s go and it just blew up.”

 

“I remember the next morning I woke up and my girl was sat on the couch, because I slept on the couch, and she was like you called Yoel out,” Till said. “So, I went onto Google and got the monkey eyes and told my guy to add when you wake up and realise you called out Yoel. Everyone knows when I’m going on a tirade on Twitter it is because I’m having a drink. It is never normal. I’m having fun.”

It seems like UFC doesn’t have a real interest in making a fight between Till and Romero at this point, but the former has another former champion in his sights.

Till has been exchanging words with Robert Whittaker lately and it looks like he they may battle it out at the UFC’s next card in London in March 2020.
