Even before UFC 248 had materialized, where “The Last Stylebender” successfully defended his title belt, he called Till a “p*ssy” for not wanting to fight Yoel Romero.

Adesanya, in an episode of UFC Embedded, said this about the UK MMA star who has now responded while appearing on MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast.

“Did he, yeah?” Till replied when asked if he’d heard Adesanya comment. “Who the F**k is he talking to like that?”

“The Gorilla” took this whole situation with a stride and then burst into laughter.

“It’s all good,” he said. “Of course…of course, he’s keeping me close. We speak everyday, me and him, we message everyday. It’s all good.”

Till then responded about his seemingly cowering attitude whenever Yoel Romero is mentioned to him.

“Of course, mate, he’s a beast – I’m terrified,” the UK middleweight said this with a laugh.

When asked if he still fears “The Soldier of God” after his bout with Adesanya, Till replied saying, “Do you not believe me? 50 per cent of people comment saying, “I know why Till is scared,’ (and) they still believe it, so I don’t know.”

Till further said that why he thinks him and Adesanya share a great rapport.

“You know that Israel knows that I’m not scared of Yoel. He’s just doing that. He knows what he’s doing and so do I.”

“Look at the way I’ve marketed this whole thing now Yoel and everything. (I’m a) f**king genius, you know what I mean.”

The promotion is close to getting a huge headliner in Darren Till vs Robert Whittaker in its return to Dublin.

Reportedly, both these middleweights are being lined up to headline the 3Arena in a high-profile bout.

The Australian held the middleweight title for two years before Adesanya stripped him of it at UFC 243.

The Liverpudlian was due to fight Whittaker earlier this month but then had to back out after he picked up an injury.
