Why Darren Till Has A Tattoo Of 'Paige VanZant' On His Arm

Darren Till's striking tattoo has been the subject of fierce debate among UFC fans since the top contender made his Octagon debut in 2015.

The UFC star has a rather big tattoo of a mysterious blonde woman which covers his entire upper left arm.

His tattoo got the online MMA community talking with everyone thinking he had Paige VanZant inked on his arm.

But Till quickly squashed those rumours when he revealed the true inspiration of the tattoo - which happens to be his ex-girlfriend.

"No, it's not. It's my girl," Till said when asked if his tattoo was of VanZant after his stunning UFC bow back in May 2015.

"It was a surprise for her birthday. I don't know what I was thinking? I was like, 'Yeah, I'm going to do something different. I'm going to get a tattoo of her face.'

"This is my tattoo. It's not Paige VanZant. I don't even know who that is," he added.

"As I've told you about my girl, she's next to none other. So, every time I fight, she fights too. And she gets beat up with me, do you know what I mean?

"So, if she's p***ing me off, I just go to the gym and let some guys punch me."

Till, meanwhile, last fought in July when he lost a decision to former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker.
