At long last, Jorge Masvidal is set to return to the cage. The fan favorite welterweight contender will battle former title challenger Darren Till in the main event of the anticipated UFC London card on March 16.
Speaking on the latest stacked episode of BJPENN Radio, Jorge Masvidal explained how he envisions this UFC London fight with Darren Till playing out— and interestingly enough, it all ends with him slapping another UK MMA star in Michael Bisping.
“I’m walking into the cage, crowd is going crazy,” Masvidal said, living out the fight in his mind. “My coach is giving me some last-minute instructions. I turn around, see Till, charge at him, and we start throwing down. I hit him. I make him miss. I take him down. I punch him in the face. He gets back up. I punch him in the face some more. I keep making him miss, punching him in the face. Then I just break his will and take over and just keep coming at him, getting my hand raise at the end of the day for a lot of hard work, skillset, and determination.
“That’s it, man, ride off into the sunset, take over the island for a day or two, maybe I see Bisping somewhere in some freaking after hours place, slap him up just to end the night on a even better note, because I got such a punk talking crap to me in front of my family and kids,” Jorge Masvidal added. “He’s going to get it one day when the UFC officials ain’t around.”
Jorge Masvidal and Michael Bisping have been swapping trash talk for years, and for the former, the beef is still alive and well. He’s still dying to get the British MMA legend alone.
“If I get to see Bisping after the Till fight and slap him up, what a super plus,” he said. “That’s like a 50K bonus if I just get to slap up that little trick bag in his own city. Oh, I’d pay a good amount of my hard-earned money. Everybody here in this knows we don’t earn the money the easiest way that it can be earned. Man, I would spend a lot of my own money just to be put in the cell with him showcasing it.”
How do you think Jorge Masvidal will perform against Darren Till? And what do you think will happen if he crosses paths with his nemesis Michael Bisping after the fight?
