Darren Till knows what it is like to lose to Jorge Masvidal and offered some support to fellow welterweight Ben Askren.
Masvidal beat Till by second-round knockout in the headliner of UFC on ESPN+ 5 (also known as UFC London) on Saturday, March 16, 2019, at The O2 Arena in London, England.
This was the latest loss in Till’s career that has taken a hit following his loss to then-champion Tyron Woodley by second-round submission victory over Till to retain his welterweight title at the UFC 228 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Dallas, Texas, last September.
Masvidal made UFC history with the fastest knockout when he ran out and connected with a devastating knee strike to the jaw of Askren at the UFC 239 pay-per-view event on Saturday night from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Darren Till Offers Support
Till took to his official Twitter account where he wrote the following support to Askren, “Unlucky Ben, sh*t happens you’ll be back.”
There are a lot of questions for Askren right now with his pro-MMA career as the only reason that he came out of retirement and joined the UFC was in hopes to get a title shot to have the chance to become the welterweight champion.
Now, he’s back at the drawing board. Time will tell whether he continues to fight or calls it a career for good.
