Darren Till made a real point at today’s UFC 228 official weigh-ins by coming in one pound under his required limit.
Following the news that flyweight champion Nicco Montano was hospitalised for a yet-to-be-disclosed reason earlier today, there really was the sense that something could go incredibly wrong in the night’s main-event.
With Darren Till’s recent weight-cutting struggles – most noticeably at UFC Liverpool – many had doubted his ability to get the job done this time around.
The Englishman did not disappoint, though, coming in at 169lbs, one pound under the limit.

Woodley himself managed to make weight on the second-attempt, weighing in at an even 170lbs after requesting the use of the towel.
UFC 228 has a main-event folks!
