UFC London is set using its main and co-main occasion. The card takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England, along with also my ideas about the two new high-profile spells added into the card are under.
Darren Until Armour Jorge Masvidal, UFC Fight Night 147
An exciting welterweight matchup involving Darren Until and Jorge Masvidal is set since the headlining five-round fight at UFC Fight Night 147. ESPN broke the news. Until (17-1-1) is 5-1-1 general at the UFC and in his last bout endured his first career loss by entry to champion Tyron Woodley in UFC 228. Till remains among the most well-known fighters in the branch, and all Europe, so despite the reduction he always made a great deal of awareness to headline this card in London. He flirted with the notion of going up to middleweight but chose to stay at welterweight to receive his hands on Masvidal, who stylistically should wear a good fight against Till. Masvidal (32-13) is 9-6 overall in the UFC and has not fought as a 2017 conclusion loss to Stephen»Wonderboy» Thompson. He hasn’t actually won a fight in almost two years because a TKO win over Donald Cerrone, but is still obviously a dangerous and skilled fighter. Masvidal was presumed to fight Nick Diaz in UFC 235, but that struggle fizzled and he will now take on forever.
I’m expecting a very competitive struggle between Till and Masvidal, however since he’s from England and contemplating all the betting support he normally gets, I fully expect 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 be the co-main occasion of UFC Fight Night 147. Edwards (16-3) is 8-2 in the UFC and is actually riding a quiet six-fight win series at the moment using a decision win over Donald Cerrone in his final outing. He has quietly evolved to one of the best welterweights in the UFC, but has been waiting to receive his hands on a top-10 opponent. He has finally found a taker in the form of Nelson, who’s coming from a huge 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 for a few of the biggest wins of his UFC career to date. He’s never risen to the championship degree that many observers of the game expected he at one point in time, but he’s still proven himself to be a solid fighter at 170lbs, along with the triumph over Oliveira revealed just how great he is at his best.
This looks like a different aggressive struggle. Edwards has proven a yearlong game in his last couple of fights but Nelson is clearly an incredibly-dangerous finisher and is coming off of a big win. Based on the recent triumph over Oliviera I’d guess Nelson is pegged as the favorite here, but I think Edwards could have a lot of dangers in what ought to be a really close fight.
