On Saturday night (Saturday afternoon in North America), the UFC will return to our screens with the exciting UFC London card, which airs on ESPN+ (get a free trial here).
This UFC London card will be headlined by a crucial welterweight contender bout between former title challenger Darren Till and ferocious veteran Jorge Masvidal. The bout will mark Till’s opportunity to rebound from a failed championship bid opposite Tyron Woodley, and Masvidal’s chance to get back on track after a decision loss to Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson — all the way back in November of 2017.
The card will be co-headlined by another important welterweight fight, as perennial Icelandic contender Gunnar Nelson looks to slow the rise of surging Brit Leon Edwards.
Elsewhere on the UFC London card, we’ll witness a massive light heavyweight showdown between ferocious knockout artists Dominick Reyes and Volkan Oezdemir, which could easily propel the winner into title contention.
Finally, the card will also feature names like Danny Roberts, Jack Marshman, Arnold Allen, Joe Duffy, Molly McCann and more.
On Friday morning, the fighters on this UFC London bill took to the scales to weigh in for battle. While the card’s headliners hit their marks, main card fighter Jack Marshman regrettably missed the middleweight limit by two lbs.
