Jorge Masvidal absolutely flattened Darren Till in the UFC London main-event after one of the best rounds you will see all year.
The fight lived up to and surpassed all of the expectations we had going in and as soon as the action began, Masvidal lept at his adversary with a side kick that unfortunately caught Till low.
When the fight restarted, Till managed to knock Jorge down with his first real shot after the brief pause, almost finishing the show before Till was able to recover.

The rest of the round was a thrilling display of pure violence as both men gleefully exchanged hard shots with a smile, although Till – with the knockdown- likely did enough to take the 10-9.
In the second, it was more of the same but Masvidal slowly seemed to be catching the Liverpudlian with increasing regularity.
When the finish came, it was brutal as the fight that preceded it.

Masvidal now has a real stake in the welterweight title picture once again and with UFC London attendee Ben Askren seemingly set on fighting the winner of tonight’s bout, do not be surprised to see Jorge take the famed wrestler on next.
