Darren Till’s social media game is on point.

From jokes about ducking Yoel Romero to sliding into Donald Trump’s DMs, ‘The Gorilla’ has delivered the laughs once again amidst global concerns over coronavirus, which has reportedly infected 297,455 people worldwide and killed 12,775. 94,5684 human beings have recovered from the virus, according to the coronavirus worldometers page.

Till appears to be in self-quarantine since the UK recently enforced ‘lockdown’ measures to combat COVID-19, and it looks like the Liverpudlian has been busy binge-eating and watching Netflix.

Till got into a hilarious back-and-forth with former UFC middleweight champ Robert Whittaker on Instagram, and it appears both men have temporarily put their training on hold to play video games and binge-eat junk food (h/t @Pommesbudenpate).

Till hasn’t fought since his split decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244, while Whittaker hasn’t fought since he lost the middleweight title to Israel Adesanya at UFC 243.

Both men are ranked in the top-five UFC middleweight rankings, with Till at #5 and Whittaker ranked #2.
