UFC middleweight Darren Till introduces fans to his long-awaited return.
“Gorilla” was last seen in a September 2021 game against Derek Brunson at the Octagon. In that match, the British star was submitted in the third round. The loss was also Thiel’s second in a row, as he previously lost to Robert Whitaker.
After the fight, the 29-year-old revealed he had struggled with a torn ACL. Because of that injury, he was forced to take some time off. Thiel was due to return for a bout against Jack Hermanson at the UFC in London last month, but was forced out due to an undisclosed injury.
Darren Thiel has been mum about a return since quitting UFC London. However, in an interview with ESPN, the former title challenger revealed that he has returned to training. Along with that, Till still has a desire to fight in 2022.
