    Till admitted to wanting to pull out of his fight with Gastelum because he was scared and was thinking of faking an injury. Do you think he should of said this? Now I’m skeptical of Till’s heart and if his pulling out of fights are because of genuine injuries. He’s fought scared since Wonderboy.

    This is Till, he said all kinds of dumb stuff. I wouldn’t think to hard about it.

    Nah he's not, he's sent him the X-rays apparently.

    regardless Till is an absolute reckless animal in the gym, it's no surprising he is injured.

    It doesn't make sense for a guy who recently fought Whittaker (the second best guy at 185) and did well to pull out against Vettori, who despite being a good fighter, is obviously not on that level.

    He’s a headcase for sure but I think this time it’s legit

    I'm pretty sure he's injured. Till just likes to troll people online, he's quite good at it....

    Till actually went bananas on Vettori on IG and sent him his x-rays as a proof that he's not ducking the fight. Vettori confirmed it on media day

    I said it in another thread. But i dont think its Vettori specifically. He pulled out against Jack too. I think its the pressure of being in a must win situations. Alot of more hardcore fans are questioning his legitimacy and losing his next fight puts him at 1-4 in his last 5 and 1-2 at MW with a lack luster sd as his only win.

    He showed an xray so its hard to question that, but pulling out twice in a row in do or die fights is skeptical

    Holland will probably put up a much better fight.

    Till's entire persona is nothing but smoke and mirrors. He fights like a deer in headlights.

    Or necessarily scary. When he said he was afraid to fight Romero I sorta think he wasn't actually kidding because he can put you out. Vettori is a pressure fighter but doesn't really end fights in scary fashion. I think Whittaker is the better fighter but in terms of damage and rough fights they put you through I'd put Vettori over Whittaker. A lot of fights for Whittaker is him being very technical and out striking.

    I don't think so. If you examine your own thought processes, you'll know that we all have crazy thoughts that a sane mind has to filter out; punching your boss, walking away from all your responsibilities and living on an island, screaming in the library, bedding your first cousin. The crazy thoughts you have that you actually seriously contemplate that would put you in an extremely bad light are the ones you'd be less likely to tell in public.

    Do you really even see what the pictures are showing? I don’t think he’s faking, and I see the arrows in the pic, I just don’t see a collarbone? Maybe I’m retarded (probably).

    I don't think he's faking at all, even before the pictures.
    I don't know what's what on the pictures either, but" IF Till wanted to look legit, he could've pulled and/or faked any X-Ray for a broken collarbone from google and if that picture is real - which i think it is - he wouldn't say his collarbone is broken if it wasn't actually broken on the X-Ray, since rather sooner than later, someone with a bit of knowledge would come and credibly explain how the X-Ray doesn't show any fracture at all.
