    If Till fights Bobby Knuckles in an extremely safe manner the same way he fought Gastelum, I think he might have a chance to fight for the belt.
    Just clinch when he gets close
    Avoid throwing any kicks.
    Brush off any takedown attempts.
    Never take any risks.
    Get a little smooshey with the judges backstage so they give you more points per fight.

    What do you think?
    Can Till decision his way to a title shot?
    He could be the next Usman of the MW division!

    I think one of these top dudes will catch Till.
    Gastelum really sucked that night. He was overlooking Till big time.

    Till did beat Gastelum, but I'm not sold he's ready for the elites at MW. He's gonna need to be able to pull that trigger and I know he's gonna struggle with that after being finished twice before the Gastelum fight.

    Darren "wonderboy' Till is a contender like it or not. HIs weakness is his submission defense....Econo Till is game, he lost his big fights because he fought cocky/overly confident.

    I have a feeling they'll rush Till to the title shot if he beats Whittaker.... Realistically he should have to face Cannonier, but of course the UFC will never do that. Cannonier would absolutely destroy him. Honestly IMO Cannonier is the only person in the division I could see actually beating Adesanya.

    He’s still only 26 I can see him in a few years being a threat for the belt for sure.

    That's why you need more than a 1-2 at the top! *Coughs* Kattar...
    Whittaker got hooks, Explosive as fuck movements, and a decent wrestling pedigree........
    If Till thought this was bad....

    Then what would he do when "The Reaper" comes flying?

    It's been confirmed to death that Till has no head movement!

    he should fight cannionier...want to see Till horribly KO'ed again!
    Whittaker is definitely a winnable fight because he's been inactive too long with serious health issues (emergency surgery to remove bowel that he could have died from), and looked absolutely awful in his last fight. Honestly whittaker lost his 2nd fight to romero but judges hate solider of god for some reason so decline was already there.

    He has a lot of skill, but he won't be able to step in as easy on Bobby to shut his advances down. With The smaller kelvin he could really just meet him half way when kelvin tried getting in punching range, then push off the clinch back to range with ease. Robert will be taller, and bigger making that less of an option to just shut him down with. Definitely think Till is at his right weight now though. Just needs to get that confidence back.

    I don’t think it’s likely, no. He did look nice and technical against Kelvin, but I just felt like Kelvin didn’t think Till had a chance to hang with him. And he paid for it by giving up his ranking. I don’t see how he gets past someone like a Romero, or even Uriah Hall for that matter. But then again, I’ve been wrong about the guy several times now.

    Till has finishing ability with his hands but I think he prefers to out point. Especially after a few bad losses. In the mean time at least. Can't look into the Wonderboy fight too much because that's the best way he could have fought that.

    He also has the unfair advantage of the best smile in MMA. That might help with the female judges.

    Till is the UFC's new Bisping. Not quite elite but almost and it's always good to have a white Brit on the roster. Much like Bisping, I predict he never wins a title eliminator.

    Rush? If he beats Whittaker he will have wins over a former title contender and a former champion.. both top 5.

    Uriah is a damn good fighter in his own right. I don’t think Till would beat him, no. It’s possible but I wouldn’t favor him.
