On the 16th of March UFC comes back to the UK. In the main event of the evening former UFC, Welterweight Championship challenger Darren “The Gorilla” Till (17-1-1) will face Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal (32-13). This fight will take place at O2 Arena in London, England. Both fighters are talented and very dangerous in the fight so we believe it will be an awesome fight.
Darren “The Gorilla” Till
Darren Till is coming back from his first career loss against UFC welterweight then-champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 228 in September. Now he is definitely looking for a different outcome in this fight to get another title shot in the future. Before his submission lost against Tyron Woodley he was unbeaten. Till won over really difficult opponents – UFC veteran Donald Cerrone and two-time title challenger Stephen Tomphson. “The Gorilla” is a young fighter, he is just 26 years old but he is very smart, composed fighter, elite striker. The Liverpool native is a very hungry talented guy with a lot of confidence. He is a star in the making.
Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal
Jorge Masvidal will be hoping to end his two-fight losing streak. Masvidal hadn’t fought since November 2017 after two losses against Demian Maia and Stephen Thompson. In his last fight, “Gamebred” fought Stephen Thompson and lost that bout by unanimous decision. Masvidal is always ready to fight, ready to put a tough fight to his opponents. It is very hard to take down American because his takedown defense is great. Also, he is a dangerous striker, excellent uses ‘sneaker’ strikes on the break, has good knees in the clinch.
These fighters never met each other in the octagon.
