Midnight Mania! Watch Darren Till Crush Sparring Partner Ahead of ‘Wonderboy’ Fight

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Exciting welterweight prospect Darren Till is set for a highly anticipated main event bout against number one contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, set in Liverpool, Till’s hometown. The Scouser (as Liverpool natives are often called) is pulling no punches in sparring ahead of a fight that could very well determine the best striker in the 170-lb. division. Here he lights up his sparring partner, knocking him down and landing some vicious body shots in combination against the cage. It could indicate his strategy for the Thompson fight involves getting Thompson into tight spaces against the cage and unleashing combinations- though Thompson has said he doesn’t think Till is all that impressive upon scouting him.

Rounds upon rounds upon rounds @ufceurope

Till going this hard on his sparring partner drew comments from fellow UFC fighters, with Marc Diakese commenting, “How much did he get paid?” and Mike Perry saying “Get buddy a headgear or something got damn”


Insomnia

This is why you should follow MMA Mania on Twitter. We explain things.

The new ESPN+ deal sparked speculation on both how much more the UFC will be making (a lot) and how many events will be run. Oversaturation is commonly blamed for a decline in baseline UFC viewership.

It also prompted a comparison to other sports with Collectively Bargained Agreements, where the athletes saw their wages rise in response to the greater revenue. The UFC fighters currently receive around 17% of UFC revenue, a figure which will likely fall in proportion to this new influx of revenue.

Kajan Johnson’s reminder that only he and Leslie Smith are open to UFC reprisals, as every other fighter’s involvement can be confidential.

Cowboy Cerrone wakeboarding, as he does.

This wedding went downhill fast.

Cormier started off throwing some trash talk Stipe Miocic’s way and ended up roasting some trolls.

Even when a fan brought up his crying face after the second Jones fight, DC wasn’t too worried- after all, he did make 4 million dollars from that fight.

Robert “Bobby Knuckles” Whittaker working it out on the pads

Mike Perry training at Jackson-Winklejohn has to be a memorable experience for all concerned.

I’m not hating this proposed fight between Nate Diaz and Georges St. Pierre- sure, GSP ought to win it running away, but it gets both men back in the cage when we probably wouldn’t see either one otherwise.

Rockhold vs. Gustafsson would be fun, but I’m thankful that I won’t have to deal with the farce of another interim title. Eddie Alvarez vs. Dustin Poirier 2 needs to happen as well.


Quick Hits

  • Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Yair Rodriguez? On UFC 227?? Sign me up for the spinning kick palooza!
  • Junior Dos Santos has an understandably sour taste in his mouth after getting aquitted by USADA but losing out on a portion of his career before he was able to prove his innocence. He’s right that something’s gotta change under that regime, because fighters like JDS, Josh Barnett, Lyoto Machida, and Tim Means are losing paydays during what are often very limited athletic opportunities to make money prizefighting.
