Many in the mixed martial arts world, including governing body officials, were shocked to see a recent video that showed welterweight contender Darren Till going through an absolutely brutal weight cut that left him without sight for brief periods ahead of his fight with Stephen Thompson in Liverpool, England.
Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos, who is now a welterweight contender, knows all too well the torture that Till was undergoing to try and make weight for his fight with Thompson. (Till ultimately lost the battle with the scale, weighing 3.5 pounds above the limit for the bout.)
Despite understanding what Till was trying to do to make weight, Dos Anjos admitted that he was a little shocked at the extremes Till underwent to attempt making weight, saying he doesn’t believe that Till will be a welterweight much longer.
