Darren Till will walk out of UFC Liverpool as the victor, but there are plenty of people who watched his contest with Stephen Thompson that don’t agree.
In fact, most of Till’s fellow UFC fighters who shared their thoughts on social media felt it was Thompson, not Till, who deserved their arm to be raised. Check out some of the reactions below:

In fairness that walkout to Neil Diamond was worth 2 points @btsportufc

Not the banger you wanted. But the high level chess match that you very much appreciate. Great fight to both men! @WonderboyMMA @darrentill2 @ufc

This guys touch gloves and hug it other more times than punch in the face #UFCLIverpool

I thought Wonderboy won and it makes me mad that people who DON’T make weight this year are 7-1 in their fights. Something needs to change.

Good show gentlemen . . . Touch don’t get touched. Way of the future. I’m a risk taker though. #YoungAndReckless #KillOrBeKilled #FightSmart #HitDontGetHit #Balance

Sorry but controlling the Octagon does not give you the round. @WonderboyMMA landed the cleaner harder shots in the first 3 rounds. Sad that people that are supposed to know about the sport are lacking greatly in their knowledge of what is scored in a round #AskBJM
