Watch Darren Till Spar Cage Warrior’s Heavyweight Tom Aspinall, Ahead of UFC 244

Darren Till is moving up to middleweight battle Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244, and recently Cage Warriors shared out compelling footage of him training and sparring with heavyweight, Tom Aspinall.

Darren Till will throw hands with Kelvim Gastelum in his next bout. But, based off a video Cage Warriors recently shared out, the British fighter will be well accustomed to mixing it up with someone who’s not a welterweight…

Till’s move to 185

Since Till was always a massive welterweight, and because he had some issues making 170, there was talk about him moving to 185 for some time. Well, recently the UFC announced that Till is going to do just that, as he’ll fight Gastelum at UFC 244, November 2nd.

More recently, Cage Warriors posted the video below, which documents Till training and sparring with heavyweight, Tom Aspinall. As you will see, the fighters certainly aren’t coasting through their respective camps.

Aspinall (6-2) is scheduled to fight Mickael Ben Hamouda at Cage Warriors 107, September 28th in Liverpool. The heavyweight is coming off back-to-back wins.

Till (17-2-1) is looking to bounce back from a submission loss to Tyron Woodley and then a follow-up, knockout defeat at the hands of Jorge Masvidal.
