Conor McGregor comparisons are inevitable, but I’m better

MMA


UFC’s Darren Till can understand why people compare Conor McGregor to him but insists he’s an improvement on the Irishman.

Till (16-0-1), who spent more than three years in Brazil honing his MMA skills, last appeared in an Octagon back in October, when he beat Donald Cerrone via first-round TKO.

Till and McGregor have had similar rapid rises to stardom, are European and fight southpaw.

While he has yet to fight for a belt and is currently No.7 in the welterweight rankings, Till firmly believes he’s a better fighter than two-weight UFC champion McGregor.

“He looked more into marketing [than I am]; I don’t think I market myself,” Till exclusively told ESPN. “I’m just real. I just say what I think. I just write or post what I think.

“I don’t really care what anyone thinks or says about me. They don’t know me.”

Till said he thinks he and McGregor have a similar fighting style. “I just think he lacks a bit of kicking, little bit of cardio,” he said. “But you could put us in the same bracket in the fighting style. But I am better. I know I’m better.

“It’s not a disrespect to him or any other fighter out there in the world, to the best in the world — could be [Daniel] Cormier, the Jon Joneses, I just believe I am the best fighter.”

McGregor hasn’t fought since his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in August 2017, a fight he lost via knockout.

Till has yet to schedule another bout himself but recently revealed to ESPN he’s ready to fight again after overcoming a recent sickness bug.
