Recently in the UFC Vegas 36 pre-fight interview, Darren Till shared his opinion on this situation. As per ‘The Gorilla’, “nothings off-limits” in the fight game.

Till said – “When two men were about to go in there and rip the heads off each other. So, you’re going to start getting offended with things that people saying to your Momma?.. Maybe this isn’t a sport for you, you need to go find another sport.”

“If someone is saying something about your kids, and like this, or your wife, find something else to do. Because you need to have thick skin in the sports, and especially you need to have thicker skin when you got a man on top of your tongue to elbow you stays in the face. So, that’s how I look at it.”
