Darren Till: Professional Troll
The 18-2 professional has a storied history for using social media as a platform to garner eyeballs. He has expressed a keen interest in using his spare time to troll other personalities and fighters. His hilarious back-and-forth banter has brought him significant attention from fans and critics alike who have observed his antics.
He has publically maintained that these amusing antics are his way of building hype around a contest. Chiefly, he has acquired massive success in this regard.
Primarily, he has been at odds with former friend Mike Perry through recent media interactions. The Liverpool native has created a website to target ‘Platinum’ Perry. Additionally, he has passed comments on Mike’s girlfriend via various interviews and posts.
The Welterweight didn’t take kindly to those fighting words from his friend turned foe and insulted him publically. This instance is one in a long list of contentious interactions that took place on social media. The fans appear to separate Till’s antics with his serious intent displayed inside the octagon.
All jokes aside, Darren Till has a tall task ahead of him as he prepares to square off against a former champion. Robert Whittaker is an exceptionally durable fighter with a varied skill-set. MMA fans and pundits have cleared their schedules for the certified banger of a main event.
