Darren Till recently challenged Tyron Woodley for the UFC Welterweight Title at UFC 228, coming up short via a second round submission loss.
UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington wasn't very fond of Till’s performance at the event, even saying that Till neglected his family for such a poor showing.
“Till’s just an overrated doughboy that had a whole lot of hype,” Covington said on The Luke Thomas Show. “He talked the talk, but he couldn’t walk the walk like me so he needs to leave it to the big boys. He beat a crippled old ‘Clownboy’ and got a gift in his hometown against the ‘Choirboy’. He should have never been rewarded with a title shot for missing weight in a third of his UFC fights. Good thing he neglected his family to land a hot zero significant strikes in two rounds.”
Till landed zero significant strikes during the bout against Woodley, who would receive his black belt for tapping Till out at the event.
WWE Hall Of Fame member Snoop Dogg recently criticized Till’s performance, while many believe the entertainer simply mistook Till for Covington. Either way, it won’t stop Covington from blasting the former Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series color commentator.
“Snoop Dogg needs to get checked for Tourette’s,” Covington said. “Have you seen that malnourished twig hit the mitts? It’s a sight to be seen, it’s a joke. He needs to stick his a**hole-ness to rapping and get used to Donald Trump being his president for the next six-and-a-half years.”
Covington now has to put Till and Dogg behind him, as UFC President Dana White said the fighter would be next in line to challenge Woodley for the gold.
