Darren Till confuses spar and spa, expects to get a steam with Mike Perry

Darren Till speaks English, and Mike Perry, a close approximation of English

I remember an episode of Seinfeld where George laughingly remarked, “It must be impossible for a Spanish person to order seltzer and not get salsa.” Well, apparently, Mike Perry asked Darren Till if he wanted to spar while they were both in Los Angeles for the UFC’s 25-year press conference.

Mike Perry thought sparring with Darren Till would be beneficial and asked him if he wanted to spar. Till said yes, thinking he’d been asked to go for a steam. I mean, who doesn’t like a nice soak, steam and rub down?

It wasn’t until later that Darren Till understood he was asking to spar, and not offering a trip to the spa. Darren thought they were going for a nice steam and maybe a rub down. It’s pretty funny actually. The two met on the street and figured out their misunderstanding. No word on whether or not they put the gloves on, but I’m guessing Darren was more interested in the steam.
