Two rising Welterweights with similar fighting styles lock horns this coming Sunday (Manila time) as Darren “The Gorilla” Till will look to get back to the winning track against Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal at the main event of UFC Fight Night 147 inside The O2 Arena in London, England.
After looking mightily impressive in his first six UFC fights (5 wins and 1 draw) Till tasted defeat for the first time in his career when he succumbed to former 170-lb. Titleholder Tyron Woodley in their championship bout last year.
Masvidal, meanwhile, has looked liked a world-beater since returning to Welterweight in 2015, with impressive finishes over Jake Ellenberger and Donald Cerrone. But “Gamebred” has hit a rough patch as of late, dropping close decisions to Demian Maia and Stephen Thompson in his last two bouts.
Both fighters will look to bag an impressive win and catapult right back to title contention. Here’s how you can catch the action-packed bouts this weekend
