Biography
He began training in Muay Thai at the age of 12, and after dropping out of school aged 14 to focus on the sport, he turned professional a year later and began training in MMA with Team Kaobon aged 17. During his teenage years, Till would live in different places such as his gym and relative's houses after an incident he had with his mother, for which he got kicked out of the house. In August 2012, Till was stabbed twice in the back after confronting a large group of men at a party. He subsequently joined Astra Fight Team in Balneário Camboriú, despite being unable to speak Portuguese and with minimal knowledge of grappling. While Till planned to spend six months in South America, he stayed for three–and–a–half years and had a daughter with his girlfriend in Brazil.
Fighter Trivia
Till was the victim of a stabbing that left him with two scars on his back after he fought "multiple bouncers and patrons" at a club during a party in December 2012. Sensing that life in Liverpool was detrimental to his development, Till's coach advised him to move to Brazil to continue his training. He ended up staying in the South American country for three and a half years despite initial plans for a six-month stay and as a result he is fluent in Portuguese.
