Till Gets Amazing Video Promo Because UFC Hates Woodley

Future headline: “Darren Till’s ego is out of control!

Let’s face it, Darren Till was not the promotion’s first choice when it came to welterweight title contenders. Not only did he miss weight in his last fight — badly — he also took a backseat to interim titleholder Colby Covington.

But “Chaos” was unprepared when matchmakers asked him to fight Tyron Woodley in the UFC 228 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which takes place next month in Dallas, Texas, and only 30-percent of Kamaru Usman was able to show up on Sept. 8.

That left Till, currently ranked No. 2 in the division, to fill the slot.

Maybe that’s why UFC is putting some extra muscle behind the Liverpool native’s pre-fight promotion. Or, perhaps Dana White & Co. just hate Woodley. Let’s take a quick look at how “The Chosen One” has been treated in recent years.

Publicly humiliated by UFC after winning the title
Named the “worst-treated champion in UFC history”
Drew the scorn of UFC fans based on the color of his skin
Constantly demoted by UFC President Dana White

There was also something about tomato throwing, but I’m not sure that’s relevant here.

UFC also made Woodley look like a member of the Lollipop Guild with the official UFC 228 poster (see it here). So what does all of this mean? Nothing, but would you rather have this … or more stories about Ronda Rousey winning make-believe titles?

This DWTNC Season 2 Video Promo Is Legit!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White continues to strike gold with his in-depth mixed martial arts (MMA) efforts.

While White is tasked with handling a full roster of fluctuating UFC stars trying to call their own shots, the 48-year-old combat guru has still managed to evolve his own show, “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series” (DWTNCS), into one of the best, if not the most promising, talent-finding competition in MMA.

Thus far, DWTNCS has featured up-and-coming prospects like “Sugar” Sean O’Malley, Karl Roberson, Julian Marquez, Lauren Mueller, and Charles Byrd, just to name a few. In many cases, the show has produced comparable talent to that of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).

Luckily, DWTNCS is coming back for a second season starting June 12 live from the TUF gym in Las Vegas. In preparation for the show’s second installment, UFC has released a gnarly promo video (shown above).

With noticeable names like former NFL star Greg Hardy, one-armed veteran Nick Newell, and former kickboxer Antonina Shevchenko (sister of UFC flyweight Valentina Shevchenko), the second season of DWTNCS should offer as much fire power as the first.

What say you, Maniacs? Are you going to be watching?

UFC 220 promo video for ‘Miocic vs Ngannou’ event on Jan. 20 in Boston

UFC 220 is all set to go down on Saturday Jan. 20, 2018 from inside TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, and will feature a Heavyweight title fight between division champion Stipe Miocic and power-hitting Francis Ngannou.

Miocic is looking to defend his title for the third time in “Bean Town” when he faces off against his stiffest test to date, Francis Ngannou, in UFC’s first mega event of 2018. Stipe hasn’t stepped foot inside the cage since May after a contract dispute with the promotion forced him to the sidelines.

But now that he’s back, his next fight will be a monumental task, as he will be facing the most powerful puncher in all of MMA, as “The Predator” has taken out one foe after another rather violently.

In the co-main event, Daniel Cormier will look to move on from Jon Jones once and for all when he defends his 205-pound title against Volkan Oezdemir.

UFC 219 promo video for ‘Cyborg vs Holm’ event on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas

UFC 219 is all set to go down on Saturday Dec. 30, 2017 from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will feature a women’s Featherweight title fight as division queen Cris Cyborg defends her title for the first time against Holly Holm.

Holm — the former women’s Bantamweight champion — looks to earn her second tile in as many divisions, becoming the first-ever women to do so under the UFC banner. For Cyborg, her first title defense and win over Holly will secure her slot as perhaps the most dominant female fighter of all time.

If she isn’t already.

Also on the card, Khabib Nurmagomevo returns for the first time in over a year to take on sensational striking machine Edson Barboza in the co-main event of the evening. Khabib has yet to suffer a loss in his pro mixed martial arts (MMA) career, so it would be a huge feather in Edson’s cap if he can pull off he upset. For Khaib, a win is another step closer to earning his first-ever UFC title fight.

UFC Shanghai promo video for ‘Bisping vs Gastelum’ on Nov. 25 in China

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up to touch down in China once again, as the world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) organization in the world will stage UFC Fight Night 122: “Bisping vs Gastelum” on Nov. 25, 2017 in Shanghai.

It’s a fight that came to be after Anderson Silva — who was supposed to face Kelvin in the headlining bout — was bounced from the card for a potential USADA violation, which marks “The Spider’s” second transgression in the last two years.

No fret, as former 185-pound champion Michael Bisping took the chance to step in on late notice just a few weeks removed from his submission loss to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217 in New York, City.

As for Gastelum, he looks to erase the memory of his previous bout, which saw him get choked out, as well, by former title holder Chris Weidman at UFC on FOX 25. Despite losing out on yet another chance to face one of the greatest fighters of all time in Silva, Kevin feels his fight over “The Count” is even bigger.

UFC Fight Night 120 promo video preview for ‘Poirier vs Pettis’ event on Nov. 11 in Norfolk

Now that UFC 217 is in the books — complete results here — Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for a quick turnaround, as UFC Fight Night 120 is set to go down inside Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday Nov. 11, 2017.

The Fox Sports 1 event will feature a pivotal Lightweight showdown as former division champion Anthony Pettis will face Dustin Poirier in what is sure to be a stand up war. “Showtime” is looking to collect back-to-back wins at 155 pounds for the first time in a long time after making the jump back up following a less than stellar tenure at Featherweight.

As for Poirier, he will look to get back on the winning track after fighting to a draw against Eddie Alvarez in his last outing. With a win, Dustin will collect the biggest win of his career and cement his standing in a 155-pound weight class that is filled to the brim with contenders eager for their invitation to the big dance.

Also, Matt Brown and Diego Sanchez will collide in the co-main event in a fight that could provide fireworks in the leading candidate to win “Fight of the Night” honors. Also, Andrei Arlovski makes his return to face Junior Albini in Heavyweight action.
