Robert Whittaker Responds To Darren Till's Latest Call-Out
Robert Whittaker has responded to Darren Till's latest call-out, with the Aussie well up for a fight at UFC London.
Till, fresh from his victory over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244 in Madison Square Garden, asked the 28-year old why he hasn't been returning his calls after posting a series of tweets going after him.
And sure enough, the Reaper has issued his reply - telling Till he will see him in the English capital and tagging UFC matchmaker Mick Maynard for good measure.
Whittaker's tweet follows up his comments stating his interest in fighting Till in his first fight back since losing his UFC Middleweight title to Israel Adesanya in October.
"I'm really interested in the Till fight," Whittaker said.
"I'd love to fight him in London, next year. We were talking about it today, a big part of fighting and doing what I do and being on the international stage is enjoying the ride.
"Enjoying the experience, enjoying traveling, going to new cities, going to new countries to fight. To work. To make a living. So I've never been to London, I'd love to go, I'd love to fight there, I'd love to fight Till. That's a good fight.
"It's not personal, but I want to fight in London, and he's kind of my ticket in there. So no offense Till, but let's fight in London. That'd be cool."
Till also called out Yoel Romero while drunk before immediately regretting it, while his absolute dream fight is to be square off against Adesanya at Anfield.
"I just think if we were to break Israel down, I think he's got the whole package," Till told SPORTbible.
"I think he's got the swagger, knows how to talk, he's an intelligent guy, he's a good-looking guy, he's smart - brilliant fighter, he's a showman. What more do you want from a guy like that?!
"That would be the dream fight - me vs. Israel. I think that would sell out a stadium and obviously look what it would bring to Liverpool. It would just be such a legacy changing fight. I think it'd unbelievable."
