Till is a welterweight who was thinking about moving to middleweight. Gorilla has decided to keep up with the 170 pounds and would like to meet McGregor there. During a recent blog post about Paddy Power, Till explained why a fight with McGregor makes sense:

“For the first time in history, Anfield has confirmed the right to host boxing and music events. I lost my last fight, Conor lost. We are both from Europe, he is a Liverpool fan, I am a Liverpool fan. I have said in the past that I want to sell a stadium in my hometown. He talked about Croke Park, but I think Croke Park will be the last fight of his career, his retirement. But until then, he talked about wanting to fight for the welterweight belt, and I obviously want my rematch, so if I fight Conor, the winner could potentially get the belt after the Colby and Woodley fight or Woodley fight. and Uthman. I’m still number two in the division. Conor previously fought at 170 pounds. Why couldn’t we get along? Two of Europe’s greatest stars, both experts at striking at one of the most iconic stadiums in the world. “

Till failed to win the UFC welterweight title. He was introduced by Tyrone Woodley in the second round. Meanwhile, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov lost to McGregor.
