Darren Till will enter the UFC London main event having not fought since September, when he was submitted by UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in his first UFC title shot. Prior to this fight, he had never been beaten. Highlights of his impressive undefeated run included triumphs over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. He’s 17-1-1 in sum.
For Jorge Masvidal, UFC London will mark the end of a lengthy absence from the cage. “Gamebred” has not fought since November of 2017, when he gave up a decision to the aforementioned “Wonderboy.” This setback was preceded by a controversial loss to Demian Maia and a knockout defeat of “Cowboy.” Since his last fight, he’s been busy participating on a Spanish language reality television show. He’s 32-13 overall.
Who do you think will come out on top when Jorge Masvidal and Darren Till duke it out at UFC London?
