When I fought Darren Till, it was the best I had in the UFC” he reminisces. He adds how he was able to do all the things he liked and is passionate about while also training for the fight. He feels that as long as he’s winning, people won’t be bothered with what he does outside the ring.

I don’t think those things prevented me from winning,” he adds as he discusses his recent slump. He claims that his lifestyle, karma, focus, and drive could be where he’s been lacking. However, he was quick to reassure that he always trains hard and never takes his opponents lightly. Currently, he’s on a 3 fight losing streak.

I was always my opponent’s biggest fight,” he says as he mentions the likes of Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, Gilbert Burns. Tyron, who was in great form for a while, had beat Darren Till with a second-round submission.
