Darren Till made an incredible UFC debut Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 67, knocking out Wendell Oliveira and remaining unbeaten.
After a very lackluster first round, Till dropped Oliveira and stunned him with three consecutive elbows. Following the fight, the European showed off his best Conor McGregor impersonation.
“I seen an opening and started elbowing his face off,” laughed Till, who told Jon Anik his hero is himself in the pre-fight interview. “It was great. This is the big stage and you have to win. You have to stay unbeaten and you have to stay the best.”
Till (13-0) said he was surprised Oliveira tried to take him down because “I have ground game. You can’t take me down.
“My coaches told me in the first, let him beat you up and try to take you down,” Till said. “In the second, lets finish him. I did it.”
Till replaced TJ Waldburger on short notice for the fight.
