Bo Nickal has laughed off Darren Till's callout.
Nickal (3-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has captured the attention of the entire UFC after punching his ticket to the octagon on Dana White's Contender Series 56 on Tuesday. He's already been booked for his debut against Jamie Pickett at UFC 282 on Dec. 10, but was called out by a top contender prior to that.
Former welterweight title challenger Till (18-4-1 MMA, 6-4-1 UFC) said he looks forward to locking horns with the standout wrestler in the future, but Nickal thinks it would be a terrible idea for the Scouser.
"Man, Darren, very, very cute," Nickal responded in an interview with "Thiccc Boy Fight News." "I guess that's my first impression: It's a cute thing of you to say having just gotten absolutely bodied by Derek Brunson - another wrestler, another grappler who's a tough dude. But I don't know why you would say something like that, knowing what I can do to you. Hopefully we fight in the future and hopefully you're ready. Good luck."
Till hasn't competed since a submission loss to Derek Brunson in September 2021 at UFC Fight Night 191. He was taken down multiple times before he was submitted in Round 3. Till is slated to compete on the same card as Nickal when he meets rising contender Dricus Du Plessis.
