Daniel Cormier gives bleak outlook for UK fighter if he was to lose this weekend

Posted by

UFC legend, Daniel Cormier, thinks that this might be the end for Darren Till if he fails to win his bout at the weekend. 

Till is fighting Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 282 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas during the early hours of Sunday morning. The Scouser has an 18-4 professional record but he managed to rack up all of his losses in four of his last five fights.

Cormier believes that if Till can’t find a way past Du Plessis, it ‘might be over for the time being’.

“Darren Till’s got that skillset, he’s training out of Sweden now with those guys like Khamzat and Andreas Michael and the whole team at Allstars MMA,” Cormier said on his  ESPN show .

“He has to implement what they teach and has to do it in a way that reminds everyone who Darren Till is and was between 170 and 185. He’s still young enough to make another run towards a championship opportunity. But it all starts Saturday, and if he can’t get past Du Plessis, it might be over for the time being for Till, but it would skyrocket Dricus up the rankings into very, very important fights.”

Till has already been to the top of the mountain but failed to win against Robert Whittaker, losing by a unanimous decision. Although Cormier has given a rather bleak outlook for Till if he loses, he is still right about his options if he wins.

A victory for the Scouser will launch right back up the middleweight ladder again.
