“I’m not finding my right way” UFC middleweight Darren Till reveals why he can’t break his loosing streak following his recent defeat vs Dricus Du Plessis

Darren Till is currently the 15th-ranked middleweight fighter in the UFC. This 29-year-old fighter has appeared in 24 professional MMA events and won 18 of them while losing five bouts. 

Currently, Till is struggling in the UFC, where he has lost five of his last six fights. The Englishman recently lost to big names like Tyron Woodley, Jorge Masvidal, Robert Whittaker, and more. 

In his last appearance at UFC 282, Till suffered a submission defeat against Dricus du Plessis, the bout was named as the fight of the night. Following the defeat, the former Muay Thai fighter released an Instagram video talking about his future plans and his retirement decision:

“I’m not finding my right way at the moment, and it’s crazy because when I’m in the gym sparring with the best guys in the world, I really am in my element, and then I step in the octagon, and I just can seem to put things together.”

In the same video, Till assured his fans that he was trying his level best in the training session and announced a little break from the UFC.

“I train like a f**king man demented. The past 18 weeks I’ve given me all, and I’ve always given me all to this sport. So now, I don’t know what to do properly, but I think I’m going to have a little time off from the UFC, I don’t know, and just rethink stuff.” 

The gorilla later clarified that he is not retiring soon as he is only 29 years old and simply wants some alone time and time with his family; he also stated that he will return to the octagon next year.

“I’m not retired; I want to fight. I want to fight soon next year, but now I just want to spend Christmas with my family, have a good time with my friends, and everybody who supports me properly, my team back home.”
