DONALD CERRONE VS DARREN TILLWhatever happens on Saturday night, give Darren Till credit for not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. In all combat sports, there’s plenty of barking going on, but too few want to bite. Till called for a big-name opponent, and when he got it, he took the fight. So does he beat “Cowboy” Cerrone in Gdansk? He’s got all the tools, but he’s got to put a smart pressure on the veteran and attack the body early and often with kicks. That leaves Till open to a takedown from Cerrone, and if the Coloradan gets it to the mat, he’ ... Read the Full Article Here

At 27, Fili knows he’s not an old man. But he’s been at this for a while, too. So the process has been about getting in touch with that same fighter who was out there “knocking people out” and putting together streaks in his early 20s. “I want to get back to that feeling,” Fili said. “I want to get back to that excitement. I’m going to get back to that energy, that electricity, where you go into a fight knowing everything’s on the line, because I’ve had five wins already and this sixth win is going to put me that much higher.

He was able to take it and return it. “So I’m looking for another fight like that – another scrap – but I really don’t see him maintaining for very long and being able to take my shots because of his style, (which) I think matches up very well with mine.
