Former UFC title contender Darren Till has pleaded guilty to several driving citations after he was pulled over by the police in May.
Till had initially entered a plea of not guilty earlier this year. He made an appearance at the Liverpool Magistrates’ Court as part of a pre-scheduled trial. But on this occasion, he chose to change his plea and accept responsibility for two specific charges. Till chose to plead guilty to driving without insurance and driving while disqualified.
As a result of Till’s decision to plead guilty to the aforementioned driving offenses, a third charge against him was dropped. This particular charge was related to obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duties.
Till’s admission of guilt comes with financial consequences, as he will be required to pay undisclosed monetary fees in relation to the two driving charges.
Earlier this year, Till bid farewell to the UFC following his defeat at the hands of Dricus du Plessis during UFC 282 in December. This loss marked the fifth in a series of six bouts that did not go in Till’s favor. Subsequently, he made the decision to request his release from the promotion.
Since his departure from the UFC, Till has refrained from competing in combat sports. However, there have been indications that he might consider venturing into the realms of boxing or bare-knuckle fighting.
While there were rumors linking him to a potential signing with Bare Knuckle FC, no concrete developments have surfaced as of the time of writing.
Before encountering his recent string of losses, Darren Till had established himself as a prominent figure in the UFC. Till last won at UFC 244, where he defeated Kelvin Gastelum by a split decision. Since then, he has lost to du Plessis, Derek Brunson, and Robert Whittaker.
