If Dana says, 'You're fighting in Vegas, ' I'll say OK. It's just that, well, how do you boo this guy? I want anybody. I want everybody. "I fought Rory MacDonald in Ottawa and I still had people cheering me on there".
"Everyone will get it from me".
Media wasn't allowed in the room when Darren Till weighed in, however, here's a pic of the scale provided to me by a source who was in the room. "I'm gonna eat 'em up with niceness".

"I think I went up to 88 kilos (194lbs) and I had to weigh in at 85.2 kilos (188lbs)".
Thompson vs Covington, just to see "Chaos" turn his trash talking attack on the nicest guy in MMA?
"My phone is blowing up, everyone is texting me 'Robbery!' and 'Till won!'" White said.
