Bisping then asked Till what he thinks of the fight between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley this weekend. However, there was a subtle dig involved from Bisping as he reminded ‘The Gorilla’ about his loss to Tyron Woodley. “So what we saying @darrentill2 is the YouTuber gonna get revenge for you this weekend or what?” wrote Bisping.

Till will be finally making his return to the UFC Octagon against Derek Brunson next month. ‘The Gorilla’ hasn’t competed since his loss to Robert Whittaker in fight island. He was booked several times in the meantime. However, injuries delayed his potential return.

He is 1-1 since moving up to the 170 lbs division of the UFC. The British fighter will look to challenge for a world title at a second division. He has previously fought Tyron Woodley at UFC 228 for the welterweight strap. But that ended in a submission loss for him. However, he gained some valuable experience with a world championship fight that can certainly come in handy the next time he gets the chance.
