English UFC Star Darren Till Arrested After 'Stealing Taxi' In Tenerife

Aww, you could just imagine the hangover Darren Till must have woken up with this morning.

According to reports in local paper El Dia, the UFC welterweight was intercepted by the blue lights of the National Police on the Canary Island of Tenerife, after going on the rampage as part of a group of Brits who had been holidaying in the popular resort.

The Liverpudlian, who last September was choked out by Tyron Woodley as he looked to take the Welterweight Championship at UFC 228 in Dallas, Texas, allegedly was ejected from his hitel lodgings in the Costa Adeje area as the boys on tour smashed up furniture and sprayed fire extinguishers at will.

Having been refused entry to a second hotel, Till and co then set to commandeering a Volkswagen Caddie taxi that had been rung for the men. He and an accomplice are said to have slipped into the front two seats as the driver packed their luggage into the back of the vehicle before driving off.

The duo was eventually apprehended in another part of the island by the cops and arrested on charges of damaging the hotel and stealing the taxi.

The 26-year-old father of two signed to the UFC in 2015 and was unbeaten in 18 professional bouts before falling to the aforementioned Woodley.

On his return to the Octagon on March 16th, he suffered a second career loss after being knocked out by Jorge Masvidal at the O2 Arena in London.

In 2012, the fighter was stabbed twice in the back after confronting a group of men at a party in Liverpool. In the wake of the incident, he moved to Brazil where he honed his skills for three and a half years, before making his debut the MMA franchise.
