UFC London didn’t go as planned for Darren Till, but he guarantees he's not going anywhere.

The UFC welterweight suffered a brutal loss in the main event of UFC’s recent event in England, getting knocked out by Jorge Masvidal in the second round. Six days after the defeat, Till has finally broken his silence.

Till (17-2-1) had a meteoric rise in the welterweight division, challenging Tyron Woodley for the UFC belt last September, but now sees himself on a two-fight losing skid. Through his social media, “The Gorilla” admits he needs to re-focus to come back “a different animal”.

Check the full statement below.

Last Saturday was a tough night against a strong opponent, @gamebredfighter

Fight game is a tough one.

Few things need refocusing now, feel like I lost me self the past year & haven’t been fully focused to my craft!

I’ve had a week in this amazing place Canada to revitalise with my thoughts!

I’ll be back a different animal, @teamkaobon is still the best coach & person in this world & we will dominate for years to come.

Can not wait to be back at the gym Monday evolving and focusing like never before. I owe it to myself!

Peace motherf*ckers
