Darren Till made a successful middleweight debut at UFC 244 by defeating former title contender Kelvin Gastelum by decision. Since then, “The Gorilla” has been riding that wave of confidence.

“People forget the fighter I was, what I done to the best striker in the UFC, Stephen Thompson, where I calm and calculatedly beat him, nearly knocked him out,” Till said in a recent BT Sport interview. “Look at the performance he’s just had, or before that (Donald Cerrone), or before that all the European stars I was just taking out, or before that when I was in Brazil just taking names, or even before that. So now they’re all just calling me out. I’m the money man in the division.

“I’ll just see who I want to fight because they’re all calling me out for a reason, so obviously I’m holding all the chips,” he added.

Number eleven-ranked Uriah Hall got wind of these statements and issued a response via Twitter.

When asked how he thinks a fight with Till would go, Hall had this to say.

“Prime Time” is on a two-fight win streak. He last fought in September in Vancouver, where he defeated Antonio Carlos Junior by split decision.
