Darren Till returns to social media with strange video post

A man of few words...

That is quite a way to return

Darren Till is back on social media, back training and back giving the fewest fucks imaginable.

Till deactivated his Twitter and Instagram accounts in a bid to lie low after his arrest for allegedly stealing a taxi and trashing a hotel room in Tenerife.

The Daily Mail reported that the UFC welterweight was fined £700 by a court and ordered to pay more than £8,500 in compensation to the hotel that he and his friends reportedly vandalised.

Till’s social media accounts vanished in the days that followed the controversy but he returned in a bizarre way on Thursday, when the Scouser posted a video of himself sweating profusely and breathing heavily on his Instagram.

Presumably posted from a sauna, Till captioned the video with the words “Fuck what you think” along with a taxi emoji.

Till has always been one to speak his mind and he will hope to return to winning ways when he gets back into the Octagon, having suffered back-to-back defeats to Tyron Woodley and Jorge Masvidal.

Prior to the Woodley bout, Till had gone 18 fights without tasting defeat and was touted as “the future” by UFC President Dana White.

Till’s next career move will prove interesting and he has recently been called out by fellow outspoken 170lb fighter, Mike Perry.

Fresh from Saturday’s victory over Alex Oliveira, Perry reiterated his desire to share the Octagon with Till.

“I think the Darren Till fight’s a good fight,” Perry said. “He’s called me out in the Octagon, I just called him out in the Octagon, I think that’s good press for the UFC to put together.

“The fight makes sense. I used to not want to call people out who were coming off a loss, but you know what, you up in the top and you got that number next to your name? I’m gonna need that spot, so I’m gonna need that fight if it’s available.”
