Darren Till confirms he’s off the UFC roster, reveals he asked for the release

Former UFC welterweight contender Darren Till has made headlines once again, as he recently revealed that he has asked for his release from the UFC. The news comes as a shock to many fans, as Till was considered one of the top contenders in the division.

Till, who holds a record of 18-5-1, has been in the UFC since 2015 and has fought some of the biggest names in the sport, including Tyron Woodley, Jorge Masvidal, and Robert Whittaker. However, he has struggled in recent years, with his last win coming in 2019 against Kelvin Gastelum.

When the algorithm-based Twitter handle UFC Roster Watch reported on Tuesday night that Till's name had been dropped from the UFC roster, rumors started to circulate. But, as per Till, he asked to be let go by the UFC.

Till has recently been battling with various injuries, but it's unclear what he requires to sort out immediately. Also, it's unclear if he would compete in regional contests to gather experience before returning to the UFC, but the British fighter is adamant he will return to the Octagon. Later, Till teased a move to boxing.

Till, who attempted to win the UFC welterweight championship in September 2018 but was unsuccessful, has lost five of his last six matches. After going 1-3 in the division, he was looking for a fresh start at middleweight but failed to establish himself as a challenger.

Darren Till has most recently lost to Dricus du Plessis by third-round submission at UFC 282 in December. After the defeat, he revealed to Bruce Buffer that he believed he had torn his ACL once more, which would be a difficult challenge considering he had already suffered an identical injury after losing to Derek Brunson, in the previous bout.

Do you think we see Darren Till fight in the UFC again?
