At UFC Fight Island 3, Robert Whittaker might have prevailed over Darren till, yet “The Gorilla” is getting positive reception over his impressive show.
The universal truth that makes combat sports, or any other sport in that matter less complicated is, the fact that there is always going to be one winner. Still, on many occasions the person or the team who comes second also becomes the bearer of unanimous respect. Which is exactly how the main event of Fight Island 3 will be defined.
Darren Till who was predicted to fall short against Robert Whittaker, did fell short. However, the English MMA professional impressed many in his way to the finish.
The 27-year-old came out in silence, without the walkout music to pay respect to the fans.

Till, might have lost via. a unanimous decision, but the fighter won the first round against all odds. The fighter from Liverpool, reportedly suffered a knee injury early on in the fight, yet was standing and was ready to trade punches till the end of the 5th round. For someone who was pitted to lose in the third round via. TKO, this was quite an impressive performance. Former Muay Thai Kickboxer evidently hid his pain, and was ready to challenge the agility of Robert Whittaker. Darren Till will now undergo a surgery and will take take time in recuperating from the injury.
In the post match conference, Till stated “I just thought we both won. He obviously won, but in my mind we both won.”
His claim got the purported acknowledgement, when the current UFC Middleweight Champion, Israel Adesanya posted;
I still wanna fight Till one day.
His striking is beautiful.
Stay up Darren!
