Darren Till vs. Jorge Masvidal to headline UFC London

A top welterweight showdown between Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal will serve as UFC London’s headliner come March.

UFC President Dana White also announced a 170-pound clash between Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson will be the co-main event in London’s O2 Arena.

These announcements come on top of the already-announced light heavyweight barnburner between Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes.

British fight fans have long been clamouring for a big UFC event, and there’s plenty to capture their excitement this time around.

Till hasn’t fought since suffering a second-round submission loss to Tyron Woodley for the UFC welterweight belt at UFC 228 last September.

Meanwhile, Masvidal, who was long rumoured to be facing Nick Diaz upon the latter’s overdue return to the Octagon, has had a considerable amount of time away from the cage himself, having not appeared since November 2017 in a decision loss to Stephen Thompson at UFC 217.
