UFC middleweight Darren Till took to Instagram and hilariously trolled WBC champion Tyson Fury who’s a good friend. Till is arguably one of the most prolific names in the sport of MMA when it comes to trolling on social media. ‘The Gorilla’ has grown his profile tremendously over the last year, and fans have taken well to his brand of tom-foolery.
The only fighter who comes close to dethroning the Englishman is UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. ‘The Last Stylebender’ is no slouch when it comes to garnering attention on social media, and there’s a healthy competition between the two. Time will be the best indicator as to who will take the undisputed throne of the most active fighter on social media.
‘The Gorilla’ shared a meme that features Tyson Fury happily singing along in his car with his wife present. Till humorously equated his jolly behavior to that of younger girls who flock to the short-form mobile video application TikTok.
Chiefly, it’s all fun and games between Tyson Fury and Darren Till who have trained with each other in the past. Moreover, Till was Tyson’s go-to man when he announced that he was keen to enter the world of MMA. Images of the two training together began to make rounds, and fans have been anticipating Fury’s move to the UFC.
‘The Gypsy King’ is pound-for-pound one of the best boxers of all time, but MMA has proven itself to be a different animal. With an array of offensive weapons in the grappling and jiu-jitsu department, Tyson Fury would have to be well-equipped. Not to mention, the inclusion of leg kicks makes the stand-up game incredibly technical as well. Fury would have to put forward dedicated training in these facets.
There’s no doubt that Tyson Fury will garner plenty of fan interest should he decide to make a move towards MMA. There are plenty of opponents with big names who would jump at the opportunity to fight him. Additionally, it’s always the MMA fighters who step into a boxing ring and it’ll be interesting to see the tables turn.
