Darren Till will be looking to start afresh next month, as ‘The Gorilla’ will be moving up from 170 pounds to 185 pounds to take on top-five middleweight contender and former interim title challenger Kelvin Gastelum in the UFC 244 co-main event at Madison Square Garden, New York
“Never say never but Masvidal — maybe I can get back at him. By the time I’ve gone through all I’m going through now, Woodley will probably be retired. I don’t see him staying around much longer. But yeah, there’s a few I have unfinished business with,” Till said at a recent media scrum (h/t Abhinav Kini of The Body Lock MMA).
When asked about returning to 170 pounds for a possible grudge match with Colby Covington, Till said he’d be more interested in a title bout with current welterweight champ Kamaru Usman.
“Not really, me and him, we had a little bit of chatter but never really crossed paths,” Till said of Covington. “I feel like he’s on a totally different path. I feel like that fight with [Kamaru] Usman was always a fight I wanted. As much as a lot of people tried to avoid him, that was a fight I wanted to get. Obviously with him being the champ now.”
UFC 244, which also features a headlining ‘BMF’ welterweight title fight between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, takes place next month, Nov. 2 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
