During their weigh-in for their co-main event bout in UFC 244, Darren Till's opponent, Kelvin Gastelum, came in two pounds below the limit for his middleweight fight.

But the bigger issue was when Gastelum was on the scale, he appeared to make contact with his coach, Rafael Cordeiro, which could have an effect on the reading of the scale and is a violation of the weigh-in procedure.

That means Gastelum's opponent, Darren Till, will probably receive 25 percent of Gastelum's fight purse.

For most people, that kind of news would excite them and put a smile on their face. Not Till. He told reporters that he "didn't give two (expletives)" about that and just wants to fight.

Till doesn't want Gastelum's money. He wants to beat him down at UFC 244, which will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York.

I guess if he doesn't want the extra money for himself, he could donate it to charity or something like that. Just a thought.
