Judge for yourself. Some dude has been following Till around periodically and making behind the scene youtube documentary videos.
He uploaded the following video a few days ago for awhile, then took it down for awhile, then reuploaded it.
At a certain point Till is shown to say that "I can't see" as he is hunched over on the treadmill. This series of events was late reuploaded with the audio off and captions of what he said off.
However what this version does still keep Is a screen shot that says that Darren had to stop as he could not longer see. Also after he is dragged off the treadmill he tells his coaches he wants to run but his coaches reply "you should not run if you can not see"
Judge for yourself. It all starts around the 4:49 mark.
To me it appears the evidence points to Till somehow losing vision (at least partially?) during his weight cut.
I feel this is pretty fucking excessive. Such a big weight cut you go fucking blind trying to lose the weight??
Later on it goes to say Darren even did something called "Colonic Hydrotherapy" to help make weight. That is totally ridiculous. Till has had 6 fights in the UFC since debuting in 2015. He has missed weight twice, once at 176 and then now recently at 174.5 on a weight cut he went fucking blind apparently trying to make.
How many more glaring red flag instances such as this will it take for the mma community to get this whole weight cut thing a bit more under control? Darren is an extreme example but I am not sure how much more evidence any potential commission would need to restrict him to middleweight. We all know that won't happen though.
If you go blind and need colonic hydrofuckingtherapy to miss weight by 3 and a half pounds, just move up a fucking weight class. Commissions spend so much time and money on drug tests and kangaroo court proceedings, it is not unreasonable to instill a One FC style weight system and be able to police it to where nobody cheats it.
Thoughts on all this? Should Darren's team even allow him to attempt such a weight cut again? Like good work Darren you made 170 this time and you only went deaf and spoke solely in Portuguese for 5 hours before the weigh in this time!
Sorry for being a real piece of shit guys. I bed for your forgiveness
Officially 6-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 5 time A league champion.
The sad thing is that is the second half of his weight cut. You should only be cutting about 5kg then when you eat something you are already back around 185. This guy you can tell is cutting from almost 200 pounds. Yeah one of these idiots will end up dead doing this shit.
Weigh ins should be done on the way to the cage. Same day, same time weigh ins. Who gives a fuck if these guys are at the exact weight limit when they fight. There is a 10-20 fucking pound window between classes and most are over 10% body weight. Few pounds is not a big deal if they are guaranteed close in weight. Right now is ridiculous with the massive gap between class weight and actual weight
