Darren Till Eyes Move To Middleweight, Wants To Fight Everyone But Yoel Romero

Undefeated UFC welterweight Darren Till is currently set to challenge reigning champion Tyron Woodley for his title. That being said, the Liverpool native already has his sights set on the middleweight division.

Darren Till and Tyron Woodley are set to fight in the main event of UFC 228. The event will be featured this Saturday, Sept. 8, live on pay-per-view.

Speaking in a media scrum following his recent media workout, Darren Till offered his thoughts about one day moving up a weight class.

“I just want to win this belt. I want to defend it; I just want to be able to say that I’ve defended it. You could be looking at two or three fights at welterweight and then that’s me done. I’m 25, I’m not putting my body through this for much longer.”

“I’m here today, I’m great. I’ve got my chef with me and he’s doing a f*cking perfect job. I feel good. I just want to be able to eat some white rice. I’m just f*cking hungry — that’s what it is.”

“As I’m getting older, I’m starting to see that it’s a lot of weight to cut and I don’t need to do it. I started at welterweight, I’m going to finish at welterweight and my ultimate goal is to be welterweight champion. In two weeks, I could be making that a reality. After that, I want to defend and then after that it’s probably me going to middleweight. That’s how I see my future playing out.”

“I’ve said I want to go to middleweight. It’s just… I see a lot of guys and they’re chasing money fights. They’re winning titles and they’re calling either the higher or the lower category or they’re calling for that super fight. When I take that belt, I want to defend that belt and then I want to go up to middleweight, but that doesn’t mean that I want to go up and challenge the champion. I would like to earn my stripes in that division too. I feel there are a lot of good guys in that division.”

That being said, it would appear that Darren Till has no interest in facing former UFC middleweight title challenger Yoel Romero.

“There’s one guy that I wouldn’t like to fight, Yoel Romero. I’m glad he’s gone up, he’s a f*ckin’ beast.”
