Darren Till cover up tattoo 

Darren Till has one of the most famous tattoos in the entire UFC. On his left bicep, he had a big tattoo of his girlfriend. Apparently, it was a birthday gift for his ex-girlfriend.

However, in recent pictures, fans can clearly see that the tattoo is being covered up by the Liverpool native. On top of his ex-girlfriend’s face, Till is getting a tattoo of a Gorilla.

Fans may wonder why is Till getting a tattoo of the animal on his bicep. It is clearly a nod to his nickname ‘The Gorilla.’

Before Till clarified that the tattoo was of his girlfriend’s, fans thought it was the former UFC female fighter Paige VanZant.

But fans will no longer get to see the tattoo, as it is almost invisible because he is in the process of covering up the tattoo.

Darren Till has three daughters with two separate women. Till, who is fluent in Portuguese language, spent a significant period of his career in Brazil. There, he had a daughter by the name of Scarlett Isabella Till.

His other two daughters are with his reported fiance, named Cerrone. Till and Cerrone named their two daughters Zara Till and Raya Lilly Till.

As the fight began, Till started taking heavy punches from Du Plessis, with the latter aiming to take him down. Du Plessis was working hard when Till was pressed against the fence.

And as Till tried to get back on his feet, he was soon thumped down by Du Plessis. Soon after, Plessis was about to apply a rear-naked choke, but Till bounced back and avoided being beaten.

However, after Du Plessis dominated the first round, Till got over and landed some heavy blows at the end.

In the second round, Till tried to overcome Du Plessis as the latter appeared tired, following his high output in the last round.

Darren Till was timing the South African with his tough left hands and counter elbows as soon as he entered his range. Till avoided the heel hook at the end as the bell rang.

Controversial MMA fighter Dillon Danis has told UFC middleweight Darren Till to remove his arm after the latter’s recent tattoo cover-up.

In the latest UFC Embedded episode, fans of ‘The Gorilla’ will have noticed a half-finished tattoo cover-up on his left arm.

The tattoo used to feature the Liverpudlian’s former girlfriend, but he has since decided to cover up the ink following the end of their relationship.

The 29-year-old opted to have a tattoo of a gorilla (his moniker) on the arm, although the artwork is still far from finished. It currently features a highly detailed bottom half of a gorilla’s face.

Despite the clear attempt at antagonizing from Danis, Darren Till appears fully focused on his UFC 282 bout against Dricus Du Plessis this weekend.

‘The Gorilla’, once tipped as a future champ, is looking to turn around a patch of torrid form in the octagon. Till is 1-4 in his last five appearances and has suffered a plethora of injuries and fight cancelations in between.
