Darren Till Reacts To Jose Aldo's Dramatic Weight Loss for UFC 245
By Mike Parrott
UFC Middleweight Darren Till isn't a fan of Jose Aldo's dramatic weight loss for his upcoming Bantamweight debut at UFC 245.
Jose Aldo is set to make his Bantamweight division debut at UFC 245. Aldo normally weighs around 152lbs, however, Bantamweight is 136lbs and Aldo has had to go to dramatic extremes to reach the weight.
The Brazilian faces Marlon Moraes in Las Vegas and fans have expressed concerns that he'll fail to hit the 136lbs limit.
It was nice of the Nova Uniao guys to hold Jose Aldo upright for this photo, to minimize the visual impact of whatever degenerative disease has ravaged his body. pic.twitter.com/neftSTO0ss

Darren Till had his own struggles with weight cutting for a long time in the UFC before finally moving up to middleweight in November.
Till has since voiced his concerns on social media, hoping that Aldo changed weight classes the other way around.
Just seen a photo of aldo
Wow he doesn't look to good man
I don't get this cut to 135
I think he is gonna badly struggle or may not even make it
I think it would of been wiser to go up rather than down
As you get older the cut gets harder not easier
I got marlon for this

Aldo has said since that the weight loss has been smooth for him, and that he's actually feeling better after the dramatic cut:
"Man, as incredible as it sounds, I'm feeling great, fast, stronger, so it's been fine...I had it in my mind that it would be difficult to make weight, to go on a diet, but it was the exact opposite."
