I think it’s safe to say Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Donald Cerrone hasn’t watched any tape on Fight Pass opponent Darren Till, who meets “Cowboy” in the UFC Fight Night 118 main event this Saturday night (Oct. 21, 2017) in Gdansk, Poland.
In fact, he (still) doesn’t know what the welterweight prospect even looks like.
“Darren, if you fucking walked into my gym right now, I still wouldn’t know who the fuck you are,” Cerrone said. “I couldn’t pick you out of a line up, I couldn’t name any of your fights, I don’t give a fuck. I’m just excited to go to Poland to fight you.”
That’s why we made this.
Cerrone (32-9, 1 NC) jumped out to a perfect 4-0 start in his welterweight fight campaign after a successful run at lightweight; however, “Cowboy” was corralled by Jorge Masvidal and Robbie Lawler in his last two appearances.
Till (15-0-1) won three of his four fights after crossing over from the international circuit, thanks to a majority draw against Nicolas Dalby at UFC Fight Night 76 in late 2015. The Liverpool native has 11 finishes in 15 wins.
If “Cowboy” gets knocked out at UFC Gdansk, he’ll definitely be able to name that fight.
