Till speaking about not to get on wars in the octagon
While speaking to the MMA Fighting, Till quoted, “One big thing I’ve always known throughout my career, the wars take the toll on you, and whoever you are, you can see them taking the toll. No disrespect, but when you look at guys like Justin Gaethje, and I look at Max Holloway now, and sometimes I seem glimpses of them slurring a little bit cause of the wars they’ve been in. All respect to the wars, but it ain’t a smart choice when you’re fighting,” as published by Sportskeeda.
His intention was to not take digs at the both fighters mentioned above, but spoke of them as mere examples. Till even tasted defeated in his division and in the most ferocious fashion by hands of Tyron Woodley and Jorge Masvidal.
