UFC welterweight Darren Till earned a controversial victory over the weekend. Now the undefeated fighter has come forward with a few words on the matter.
Till faced off against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in the main event of UFC Fight Night 130 over the weekend. The fight was at a catchweight, as Till missed weight by 3.5 pounds for the match up.
In the end, Till earned a unanimous decision victory over “Wonderboy” after five razor close rounds of kickboxing. Speaking to media after the fight, Till offered his thoughts on the controversial decision.
“Listen, it was a close fight. People are gonna want to say that he won and people say that I won. I couldn’t care less. I got the decision. It was a very, very close fight. He was the most tricky fighter I’ve ever fought. It was a hard, hard fight.”
“I think Stephen deserves a go with the interim more than I do me-self. I just beat him in a close fight, but give it to Stephen, he made weight and he’s still number one and beat more guys than me.”
“I’m not one to sit here and make excuses, I missed weight.”
