UFC Liverpool results: Darren Till beats Stephen Thompson in controversial decision
Darren Till came away with the victory in the eyes of the judges in his hometown. Just perhaps not in the opinion of the majority of onlookers. Till defeated Stephen Thompson by unanimous decision (48-47, 49-46, 49-46) in the main event of UFC Liverpool on Sunday in a razor-close bout that many thought Thompson won. The bout was a technical, tactical one. Not many strikes landed over the five rounds. Till was in pursuit throughout, with Thompson evading and sometimes countering. Thompson landed the harder, cleaner shots in the first round and Till did better in the second. The third and fourth were incredibly close — they could have gone either way — and Till exploded in the fifth, dropping Thompson with the most significant action of the bout. Afterward, Till ranted in the post-fight interview with Dan Hardy with the Liverpool whipped into a frenzy. The majority of his speech was censored on FS1 due to profanity, though. Till (17-0-1), who missed weight Saturday by more than three pounds, is unbeaten in his MMA career and looks primed now for a top contender bout in the welterweight division. The Scouser probably would have loved a finish or a more exciting bout, but he’ll certainly take the win over the crafty karate fighter. The confident, brash Till, 25, said afterward that he’d take “everyone” next. Thompson (14-3-1) has now lost two of three, but both were close decisions — the former in a welterweight title fight against Tyron Woodley last year. The South Carolina native remains a very tough matchup for anyone at 170 pounds due to his striking prowess. Thompson, 35, will remain near the top of the division, but coming up empty handed twice against Woodley — the first time was a draw — and now this loss to Till will hurt his standing in the division for now. Neil Magny didn’t have much to gain taking a short-notice, unknown opponent when Gunnar Nelson fell off the Liverpool card. But Magny still came out for the better Sunday. Magny dropped Craig White, the former Cage Warriors star, with a knee to the head up against the cage and then poured on the strike while White was grounded. The finish came at just 4:32 of the first round.
