Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender, Darren Till, is on a mission to get back into the 170-pound title hunt at the expense of longtime veteran Jorge Masvidal, who battles “The Gorilla” in the UFC on ESPN+ 5 main event this Sat. (March 16, 2019) inside O2 Arena in London, England.
Till (17-1-1) was last seen falling to Tyron Woodley in their short notice title fight, thanks to an impromptu vacation taken by Colby Covington. “The Gorilla’s” submission loss to “The Chosen One” was the first of his professional career, after disposing of Stephen Thompson and Donald Cerrone, among others.
Masvidal (32-13), meanwhile, recently snapped a three-fight winning streak by coughing up close decisions to Demian Maia and the aforementioned Thompson. “Gamebred” averaged three fights per year dating back to 2012, but sat out for all of 2018.
Watch them face off at the UFC London media day in the embedded video above.
