Stephen Thompson ‘didn’t know’ who Darren Till was before UFC Liverpool booking

Stephen Thompson has questioned Darren Till’s rise at 170-pounds, and stated he didn’t know who the Liverpudlian was before their booking at UFC Liverpool.

Despite being one of the most talked about prospects at 170-pounds, Stephen Thompson has admitted he didn’t know who Darren Till was before being booked to face the Liverpudlian in the main event of UFC Liverpool.

Following his knockout win against Donald Cerrone in October 2017, Till was ranked amongst the top ten in the welterweight division. Thompson, who is the number one contender at 170-pounds, expressed his confusion to Till’s rise when he spoke to MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour.
