Darren Till Fought With A Completely Torn ACL Vs. Derek Brunson

Former UFC title challenger Darren Till recently faced off against Derek Brunson with a completely torn ACL in his knee.

Former UFC title contender Darren Till is one tough fighter.

That has never been in question.

Now, we know just how mentally tough Till is as well as physically.

Colin Heron, Till’s coach, told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that his fighter competed against Derek Brunson with a completely torn ACL.

“It happened about nine weeks out, wrestling,” Heron said. “We got it scanned, looked at properly. The results came back as a completely torn ACL.

“So, he’s out, isn’t he? That was the advice from me and the doctors.”

Those people, though, couldn’t tell Till that.

“Darren being Darren, he said, ‘Can we give it two weeks and see if I can start running and hit pads?’ And I’m like, ‘No, not really. A torn ACL doesn’t get better by itself. You’re talking surgery and then six months of rehab alone.’

“But before you know it, he’s talked me into it, as he does. I’ve really only got one option, then: support him, whatever his decision is.”

Till dropped the fight to Brunson.
