UFC London is set using its main and co-main occasion. The card takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England, and also my ideas on the two new high-profile spells added into the card are below.
Darren Till vs. Jorge Masvidal, UFC Fight Night 147
An exciting welterweight matchup involving Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal is set since the headlining five-round fight at UFC Fight Night 147. ESPN broke the information. Till (17-1-1) is 5-1-1 overall at the UFC and in his final bout suffered his first career loss by submission to winner Tyron Woodley in UFC 228. Until remains one of the most well-known fighters in the division, and all of Europe, so despite the reduction he consistently made a lot of awareness to headline this card in London. He flirted with the idea of moving around middleweight but decided to stay at welterweight to receive his hands on Masvidal, who stylistically should put on a good struggle against Till. Masvidal (32-13) is 9-6 overall from the UFC and hasn’t fought as a 2017 decision loss to Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson. He has not really won a fight in almost two decades because a TKO win over Donald Cerrone, but is still clearly a dangerous and skilled fighter. Masvidal was presumed to combat Nick Diaz in UFC 235, but that struggle fizzled and he will now take on Till.
I’m anticipating a very competitive fight between Till and Masvidal, but given that he is from England and contemplating all of the betting support he normally gets, I fully anticipate forever to be the preferred here. I do think it’s a close fight but could definitely be interested in Masvidal if he’s available at a plus amount.
Leon Edwards vs. Gunnar Nelson, UFC Fight Night 147
As well, a welterweight bout between contenders Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson will function as co-main event of UFC Fight Night 147. Edwards (16-3) is 8-2 in the UFC and is actually riding a quiet six-fight win streak at the moment using a decision win over Donald Cerrone in his final outing. He’s quietly developed into one of the best welterweights in the UFC, but has been waiting to get his hands on a top-10 opponent. He’s finally found a taker in the form of Nelson, who is coming off of a massive win over Alex Oliveira in UFC 231. Nelson (17-3-1) rode a 1.5 decades layoff to the Oliveira fight but absolutely dominated him to get one of their biggest wins of his UFC career to date. He has never risen to the championship level that many observers of the game expected of him at one point in time, but he has still proven himself to be a solid fighter in 170lbs, along with the win over Oliveira showed just how good he’s at his best.
This looks like a different competitive fight. Edwards has proven a yearlong game in his last few fights but Nelson is obviously a incredibly-dangerous finisher and is coming off of a large win. Based on the recent triumph over Oliviera I would suppose Nelson is pegged as the favorite here, but I think Edwards could have a good deal of dangers in what should be a very close fight.
