Darren Till and Kamaru Usman have heated back and forth on social media

Some welterweights gave fans grade A social media beef on Wednesday.

Welterweight is a funny old division at the moment — crammed with young talent, but scarce on booked fights.

Names like Darren Till, Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington and Santiago Ponzinibbio are all featured in the 170-pound top ten, but none are currently scheduled with opponents. With the exception of Covington, who maintains he’s waiting for a title shot against Tyron Woodley (something already proclaimed by Dana White as going to Rafael Dos Anjos), there seems to be similar concerns: no one wants to fight them.

For Till, who is set to headline the upcoming UFC Liverpool, it’s something of an issue. While his featuring will likely draw well for the local area, a decent opponent could well make the May 27 event one impossible to miss. For the past few months, he’s been linked to names like Gunnar Nelson, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson, and various other welterweights.

But while Till maintains he’s willing to meet any man in the cage, Usman says otherwise. In fact, Usman says, Till is avoiding fighting a grinding wrestler and is no different to the numerous other names that have turned him down. Till, unsurprisingly, disagrees.

All in all, some quality social media beef on a Wednesday.
