Darren Till fires back at Kamaru Usman, and a heated Twitter beef ensues
Does the UFC want to protect Darren Till from a loss in his hometown of Liverpool, England?
Kamaru Usman absolutely believes that to be the case, which he detailed at length in an interview with MMAjunkie’s Mike Bohn.
Usman ripped Till on Tuesday morning and made sure UFC President Dana White and matchmakers knew about it (via Twitter):
This obviously was a shot at Till’s upcoming headlining spot against a to-be-determined opponent at UFC Fight Night 130, which takes place May 27 at Echo Arena.
This was also an attempt to get Till’s attention, and it worked. Several hours later in the evening, Till (16-0-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) finally responded to Usman (12-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC), and a heated Twitter beef ensued, with Till resorting to sarcasm and Usman referencing Till as, among other things, “a cheap version” of Conor McGregor.
Usman also called Donald Cerrone “washed up,” but that’s neither here nor there.
Check out how this all played out.
This is where Till seemed to try and level with Us … no, not really.
At this point, Till seemed to have enough and just let it go.
But Usman got one final message out.
