Dana White unloads on fans over Darren Till comments in profane Instagram post


UFC President Dana White is pumped about Darren Till, and can you blame him?.

Till on Saturday emphatically announced himself to the MMA world by dismantling fan favorite and former welterweight title contender Donald Cerrone with a first-round TKO in the UFC Fight Night 118 headliner at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.

Afterward, White posted a photo on Instagram of Till (16-0-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) punching Cerrone (32-10 MMA, 19-7 UFC), with the accompanying caption reading “The Future.”

The Future…. @darrentill2 @ufcfightpass

A post shared by Dana White (@danawhite) on

Seems fair enough. Surely this was just a simple way of White expressing his excitement for Till’s potential. After all, the fight put the spotlight on the 24-year-old undefeated Till like never before. He said in the lead-up that he would finish Cerrone, and he followed through with a tremendous performance that received rave reviews.

Some fans, however, took umbrage with White’s assessment – maybe thinking he’s getting ahead of himself? – and responded accordingly in the comments. White unloaded on those people with this profanity-laced response of his own:

Yikes.
