Former UFC title challenger Darren Till pleads not guilty to driving violations

Darren Till, a former UFC fighter, has entered a not-guilty plea to three counts related to a car accident last month.

After losing to Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 282 in December, Till left the UFC earlier this year. He is taking some time to heal from some prior wounds and might fight again in another promotion.

Till's biggest battle right now is a legal one. He was charged with driving while ineligible last month.

Till received unconditional bail and will appear in court again on August 30 to start the trial. Till's legal problems become public while the former UFC championship contender struggles in the octagon.

He lost three straight fights, including defeats to Robert Whittaker and Derek Brunson, before leaving the UFC.

Till's transition to middleweight didn't succeed while he was a UFC fighter. He lost four of five fights at 185 pounds after being given a welterweight title chance, with his lone triumph coming against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244 in 2019.
