Darren Till has remained tight lipped about whether his future will remain at welterweight or if he will move up to middleweight following two consecutive stoppage losses to Tyron Woodley and Jorge Masvidal — the first two losses of his professional career.

Till has missed the welterweight limit on two occasions in eight outings for the UFC. Talk of his move to middleweight began to generate a lot of interest following his failure to hit the scales at 171-pounds ahead of his hometown main event at UFC Liverpool against Stephen Thompson.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, “The Gorilla” posted a photograph to Instagram from Brazil along with the caption: “Come den motherf*cking middleweights”.

Although nothing has been set in stone, it appears as though the U.K. fan favorite is considering life at the higher category.
