Darren Till finds inspiration from Bisping, Oliveira in loss to Derek Brunson

Darren Till is in this for the long haul.

It wasn’t Darren Till’s night last night, but ‘The Gorilla’ will not be deterred.

Till hasn’t said a word since his submission loss to Derek Brunson in the UFC Vegas 36 main event, but the Liverpudlian has addressed his fans on social media.

Till posted a picture of Michael Bisping celebrating his historic title win over then-middleweight champ Luke Rockhold at UFC 199 alongside a photo of Charles Oliveira posing with the lightweight strap following his submission victory over Michael Chandler at UFC 262.

The message? Till — like Bisping and Oliveira — is in this for the long haul and is going to win the title no matter how long it takes.

Till has a long road back to title contention and will need all the motivation he can get. The 28-year-old Team Kaobon product is 1-4 in his last five outings and hasn’t won a fight since his split decision win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244. He is currently #7 in the UFC middleweight rankings.
