Darren Till And Robert Whittaker Left Speechless By The Most Confusing Questions Ever

 Darren Till And Robert Whittaker Left Speechless By The Most Confusing Questions Ever

UFC stars Darren Till and Robert Whittaker prepared for their fight this weekend by fielding some of the strangest questions ever.

The duo are set to square off in the main event of UFC Fight Night 4 on 'Fight Island' on Saturday and spoke to the media earlier this week.

An unnamed reporter first spoke to Whittaker and asked if the New Zealander would consider dropping down to welterweight and fighting someone like Conor McGregor.

Whittaker, who is a former middleweight champion, had a confused look on his face and replied, "I think you've got those mucked up a little bit."

The clip then cuts to Till and the reporter asks if the Liverpudlian would rather fight Israel Adesanya for the middleweight title or take on McGregor at Anfield, the home of Liverpool.

Till looks away from the camera and awkwardly replies: "The middleweight title, Conor McGregor is a lightweight, two weights below me."

Both fighters would have to cut at least 10 pounds to drop to welterweight or 20 to drop to lightweight.

Fans have reacted to the interview and they were quick to call out the questions being asked.

Till did reply to another question saying a victory over 'The Reaper' means a title match with Adesanya is 'the only way to go.'

"If I beat Robert Whittaker on Saturday night, the only way to go is to the title," the 27-year-old claimed per MMA Junkie.

"A lot of people say, 'Well, he's only had two fights,' but look at my two fights. This is why for every young fighter out there, or every fighter in the UFC, you shouldn't turn down fights.

"You have to take these big risks because they'll pay off.

"I didn't call for a title shot after I beat Stephen Thompson in Liverpool because I didn't quite feel like I deserved it.

"But if I beat Robert Whittaker on Saturday, which is a big ask and a big mountain to climb, the only fight for me is (Israel) Adesanya, but him and (Paulo) Costa are scheduled to fight. The only fight for me is a title fight.

"I beat Whittaker on Saturday and the only name I want to hear come out of people's mouths is Adesanya. That's all I want to hear."
