Darren Till Pondering Move To Middleweight Division

Darren Till was last seen in action in the main event of UFC Fight Night London, suffering a knockout loss to Jorge Masvidal.

The fighter, who has missed weight before when competing at welterweight, is considering a future move up a weight class to middleweight.

Till discussed the idea during an interview with Fighters Only magazine:

“I do have to think about them things. I wouldn’t be small at 185. I’d be right in the mix in there with them guys. The great guy, the interim champ Israel (Adesanya) is a great fighter. The champ (Robert Whittaker) is a good fighter. There’s a few beasts. The one guy who is a scary guy is Yoel (Romero).”

While a move to middleweight could be in Till’s future, it goes without saying that the fighter has had success competing at welterweight. The pinnacle of that success came when Till challenged for the UFC Welterweight Title in the main event of UFC 228, but he suffered a second round submission loss to then champion Tyron Woodley.

UFC President Dana White recently stated that he believed that Till was pushed too soon, but a change of weight class wasn’t mentioned by the UFC President.
