British rising star Darren Till was supposed to meet Stephen Thompson as a welterweight in the main event of UFC Fight Night 130 this past weekend, but failed to make weight.
Ultimately, that responsibility falls on him and his team, and they certainly went to great lengths to keep the fight a “go”.
But a video of what Till went through during his failed weight cut paints an ugly picture of the hell fighters sometimes have to go through for the sake of squeezing into a particular weight class. Granted, the video below doesn’t excuse Till for his failure, but… damn.
