Darren Till, a UFC middleweight fighter, has announced on social media that the UFC has granted him permission to compete in a one-off bare-knuckle boxing match. Till claims he had been considering the switch to bare-knuckle boxing for some time, citing his love for boxing and desire to try something new. The fight is set to take place on April 9th in Birmingham, England, and Till’s opponent has not yet been named.
The decision to allow Till to compete in the bare-knuckle match has raised some eyebrows, as it is not typical for UFC fighters to be permitted to compete in other combat sports during their contracts. However, Till has stated that the UFC has been supportive of his desire to try something new and has been working with him to make the fight happen.
Till is coming off of a loss in his last UFC fight, a unanimous decision loss to Derek Brunson in September of 2021. Despite the loss, Till remains one of the top-ranked middleweight fighters in the UFC, with a record of 18 wins, 4 losses, and 1 draw.
Bare-knuckle boxing has grown in popularity in recent years, with several organizations now promoting the sport. The rules differ slightly from traditional boxing, with fighters typically wearing only hand wraps and fighting without gloves. The lack of gloves can lead to more cuts and bruises, but also allows for more power in punches.
