The past few months have not been especially good for UFC star Darren Till. He is coming off back-to-back losses that ended his five-year undefeated run, and is now facing some serious legal problems.

According to the Daily Mail, Till has reportedly been arrested in the Spanish island of Tenerife for allegedly trashing a hotel and stealing a taxi this past Thursday. Per the report, Till allegedly jumped into a cab as the driver was loading the luggage and drove off.

Till and other tourists are also alleged to have broken furniture and emptied fire extinguishers at their hotel.

The group was soon stopped by police and arrested.

Till has lost back-to-back fights in the UFC, losing his UFC Welterweight Championship title match to Tyron Woodley via submission in September before losing to Jorge Masvidal in his native England just last month.

Before his loss to Woodley, Till boasted a 17-0-1 record and was seen as one of the fastest rising stars in the promotion.

His notable wins include a first-round TKO win over Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, followed by a decision win over Welterweight title challenger Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson.

Till is currently the No. 6 ranked Welterweight on UFC's official online rankings.
