by Aleksandar Urdarevik on September 02, 2021

Darren Till will meet Derek Brunson in the octagon this Saturday at UFC Vegas 36 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Darren Till has a record of 18-3-1, and Derek Brunson has a record of 22-7-0. Till is currently ranked #7 in the UFC middleweight rankings, where Derek Brunson is ranked #5 in the middleweight division.

Till could make a comeback after a 1-3 record for his last four fights, where Brunson is coming into the fight with a 4-fight win streak.

But it’s not just the title fight making headlines, it is Till’s banter and presence on social media, trolling Brunson ahead of fight night by reposting an Instagram picture that Brunson had posted after taking photos for the upcoming bout. This comes after Brunson had posted several memes trolling Till.

The fighters addressed their banter leading up to the fight during press interviews.

Till had this to say about Brunson with the trolling at the pre-fight media day, “With Derek, it’s been a bit cooler like he’s a cool guy. He’s done about a million memes of me on Instagram, I couldn’t even keep up I was like, ‘You know what? Derek wins the social media trolling.’ He trolled me good.”

Brunson also joked about the social media banter, saying at the pre-fight media day, “I mean it’s all fun and games. We took our jabs at each other, had a little bit of fun. Now it’s fight week.”

The main card is scheduled to start at 4 PM Eastern time.

Who do you think won the exchange on social media? And who do you think will take the title fight on Saturday?
