Would you place money on Till to make weight at +100?

    I think he is a certainty to miss weight. He couldn't even make it in his own hometown in the biggest fight of his life and this time he has a shorter camp. Guy looked like a goblin in that show when he was blind from the weight cut

    What are the odds on him missing weight?

    I'd take his chances at evens, but I think its very possible he misses weight.

    The UFC won't let him come in heavy. He's at the Performance Institute.

    +100 ? Nah +200 maybe. No one knows if he'll make weight which is why I'm getting some popcorn and watching the weigh in livestream, he'll probably look very deminished especially if he makes weight.

    if he does make weight any size advantage he has will be negated - he`ll be lighter then he`s used to ,and sure to get ragdolled

    Given Till's past I don't fault anyone for thinking that he might miss weight but I don't think it's fair to bring up his last weight cut because he was dealing with a family emergency which put him off course. For a big like Darren any interruption is bad because of the sheer amount that he needs to cut.

    But without a doubt even if Till wins the belt I think we won't see him fight in WW for much longer. He'll maybe defend the belt once at the most.

    Doubt he misses weight, the moment is too big for him. That being said, wouldn't be surprised if he completely destroys himself making weight and gives a sub par performance the next day.

    Usually yes when it's a title fight. Too important to mess up. But Till's different, too big for the div. One small thing goes wrong, he'll miss weight. Too risky of a bet.

    Yes its a title fight. Missing weight vs Thompson didnt matter at all in the end. Like he lost 20% of his purse but ended up with a huge win and a titleshot? Whoopie doo.

    This time its different since title is on the line. Id take -400 odds.

    Did you really believe that excuse about the "family emergency"? I'll let him do the talking on that.


    The reason he didn't make weight is because he's a fucking light heavyweight. That's it.<{danayeah}>:rustled:<{katwhu}>

    I think he'll make weight this time, I believe he learned from his horrible weight cut last time

    I heard an interview where he has a personal chef this time monitoring all his food where before he just did it himself.

    He’s still a huge guy for 170 but maybe it will help.

    I think the family emergency did have an effect (he's made WW throughout his career) but you're right there are no excuses and there is no doubt that Till does not belong in that division.
