Darren Till: Israel Adesanya may reconsider TUF role after ‘I burst Robert Whittaker’s head’

Darren Till still has his eyes firmly fixed on an August date with Robert Whittaker, and despite middleweight champion Israel Adesanya shooting down his suggestion of them coaching the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, he thinks “Stylebender” may change his tune after seeing what he does to “The Reaper.”

Adesanya took to social media to throw water on the Liverpudlian’s suggestion, but Till isn’t ruling anything out just yet.

“He f*cked me off for the f*ckin’ Ultimate Fighter, he said ‘No.’ So I was like, ‘Okay...okay...wait until I f*ckin’ burst Robert Whittaker’s head and then we’ll see what you’re saying, you stupid, scrawny little c*nt!’” Till told Eurobash.

Till went on to acknowledge that the two communicate often via social media.

“He messaged me the other day like, ‘Darren, KFC’s back open mate, get your fat arse down there.’ I was like, ‘I’ll be there mate, don’t worry.’ He’s actually a good guy, he is.”

And although he knows he will one day fight Adesanya, Till underlined that he has no ill will towards the City Kickboxing standout until he signs on the dotted line to fight him.

“Listen mate, we are going to fight. I don’t care what anyone says; we are going to fight and the best man will win. I believe I will beat him and I will become the middleweight champion. We will fight. It will be for the culture, for the fans and for the people — the culture of muay Thai, kickboxing, everything. It’s going to be epic, but until then, I’ve got no hard feeling towards that man. I’m going to punch a hole through his face and he’s probably going to punch one through mine. He gets the joke, he gets the banter, he gets that we’re frienemies. Let’s make this f*cking fight massive.”

Check out Darren Till’s latest appearance on Eurobash. It begins at 13:00.
