The Gorilla has already missed weight on multiple occasions throughout his fight career, but he is fully committed to coming in at 170 for his welterweight title fight against Tyron Woodley on September 8th. However, cutting weight is not something that Till is a big fan of, and opened up about such things to MMA Fighting during the open media workout today. The big motivator for him? Being able to say f*ck the critics when he succeeds.
It’s shit. It’s shit. It’s f*cking, I hate cutting weight, I hate making weight, I hate dieting,” Till said. “I’m gonna make this weight, so I can’t wait to [put up my middle fingers] when I step on them scales. I’m just, I’m in that moment now where I just, I don’t want to train anymore, I don’t want to eat good anymore. I just wish I had a hamburger in front of me, but it’s all sacrifices and I made a mistake last time. I just can’t wait to say f*ck you to everyone who just keeps babbling on about weight and, ‘He didn’t make weight, f*ck Till.’ F*ck them.
Check out his full interview below where Till predicts that he’s going to destroy Woodley in 10 days.
