Coronavirus isn’t going to stop Darren Till from pursuing his dream of becoming UFC middleweight champion, but the Jaffa cakes and Haribo sweets might.

With the UK now officially on ‘lockdown’ Till is choosing to spend most of his time on social media, where ‘The Gorilla’ recently called out reigning UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya.

‘The Last Stylebender’ shared Till’s private video message on Twitter earlier this week.

“I’m f-cking coming for you!” Till screamed to Adesanya from his phone.

Till made his middleweight debut last year against Kelvin Gastelum, where he edged out a split decision win over The Ultimate Fighter 17 winner in the UFC 244 co-main event. The win catapulted Till to #5 in the UFC middleweight rankings, and the Liverpudlian believes the 185-pound belt is his for the taking.

Adesanya, 30, retained his middleweight title with a lackluster unanimous decision win over Yoel ‘Soldier of God’ Romero at UFC 248. The Nigerian-New Zealander is currently ranked #5 in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings.
