Darren Till is one of the most popular fighters in the world of mixed martial arts today. The kid from Liverpool continues to impress fight fans around the world with his incredible striking and has the personality to win your heart outside of the Octagon with his equally impressive sense of humor. The Gorilla of the UFC, Darren Till is a crafty striker and always keeps his left hand loaded. He likes to strike and has proved his string prowess against seasoned strikers like Donald Cerrone and Stephen Thompson.
Darren Till stands at 6ft, with a 74.5-inch reach. He is 18-3 in his MMA career and has lost only thrice inside the UFC Octagon. Let’s take a look at all the losses of Darren Till’s MMA career.

Darren Till suffered the first loss of his MMA career against Tyron Woodley in a fight for the UFC’s welterweight championship back at UFC 228. Till suffered a submission loss at the hands of the then welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in the fourth minute of the second round, losing the bout via D’Arce choke in a failed attempt to capture the UFC welterweight championship.

Darren Till fails to get past Robert Whittaker
Quite evidently, Darren Till could have put himself in the title contention had he triumphed over former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker. Back in July of 2020, Till welcomes Robert Whittaker back inside the UFC Octagon after a year-long hiatus following the championship loss against Israel Adesanya. Till failed to get the better of a crafty and elusive Robert Whittaker, who picked up a unanimous decision victory to ump back to the winning column.
