Darren Till has returned to training ahead of his debut at middleweight in November and the Liverpool fighter looks to be packing on the muscle.
The former welterweight title contender takes on Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 244 in New York after struggling in recent years to make weight at 170lbs.
Till has always walked around a lot heavier than the welterweight limit, but a recent glimpse into his fight camp has shown just how big the 26-year-old could be at middleweight.
The UFC star issued a short message on his Instagram after sharing snaps of his training: Motherf***ing tunnel vision. MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.

The Madison Square Garden fight will be Tills first appearance at the iconic sports venue and just his second bout in the United States.
Till has suffered back-to-back losses, the first defeats of his career, after falling short against Tyron Woodley in a championship fight and then being knocked out by Jorge Masvidal earlier this year in London.
Gastelum too is coming off a loss having been beaten by Israel Adesanya in their interim title fight last April and is a top contender in the division.
