Darren Till has hit out at Snoop Dogg after tasting defeat for the first time

The makings of an unexpected feud

Darren Till has made his feelings on Snoop Dogg known after falling to his first defeat as a mixed martial artist.

Till was forced to submit to a d’Arce choke from defending welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in the main event of UFC 228 on Saturday night.

And while the previously undefeated Liverpudlian was in reflective mood as he vowed to come back stronger when he spoke to the media in Dallas, Till had some choice words for Snoop Dogg.

In breaking his social media silence, ‘The Gorilla’ reserved some criticism for the hip hop legend.

“Shit happens, well done @twooodley,” Till wrote.

“You will all see me very soon! @snoopdogg you’re a fucking bitch, Fuck You!!!”

It was a bizarre comment that seemed to stem from a mix-up on Snoop’s part as he appeared to have confused Till with controversial welterweight contender Colby Covington in his commentary of the UFC 228 headliner.

The rapper repeated “Fuck Donald Trump” as he watched the ending of the fight, seemingly believing that Woodley was actually fighting Covington, who is a proud supporter of the divisive American president.

Snoop got Till’s nickname right but it was far from an expert analysis as he pronounced Woodley’s first name incorrectly and described the chokehold as ‘The Dark’.
