At the core of it all, most fighters started their journey in mixed martial arts as fans.
It seems Darren Till isn’t afraid to still show that side of him.
The fan favourite posted a lengthy statement to his Twitter today sharing his excitement for the upcoming contest between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone, which takes place on January 18.
“I cannot fucking wait for Conor X Cowboy next week. Feels like the old Conor is back,” Till wrote. “Both are right up for this. Cowboy’s camp have more to be concerned with than just Conor’s left hand though. As a southpaw, it’s not the left hand. It’s the set ups from the left hand, the spinning kicks, the faints, angles, etc…
“It all draws you onto the left hand. Also that’s not just what he brings! You don’t beat who he beat by just having a left hand. If I would have(sic) taken my own advice above against Masvidal rather than just coming out to try and steamroll him. But he done me fair and good!
“Anyways let’s see a fucking tear up next week! I’ve got Conor 1st round TKO, feel like the occasion may just be too much for Cowboy! But that’s just my opinion, Cowboy’s been around a lot longer than me and knows a hell of a lot more.”
