Watch: Jorge Masvidal & Leon Edwards Come To Blows In Backstage Fight

Jorge Masvidal attacked his fellow welterweight Leon Edwards following his second-round destruction of Darren Till in the UFC London main-event.

Masvidal was no doubt in the best of spirits after definitely beating the English star Darren Till in a major shock second-round KO victory.

Not that we were doubting the skillset possessed by Gamebred but to do it in the manner that he did in front of a hostile crowd was one hell of a statement from the veteran.

In the post-fight, Masvidal’s post-fight interview was interrupted by welterweight Leon Edwards off-camera, who, as he passed by, managed to stir up a reaction from Jorge – one sufficient enough to see him fire off a multi-punch combo before being dragged away by those present.

It’s not what we want to see from two of the best in the division but all we can say is that Ben Askren may well lose out on his opportunity to fight Masvidal if this newly-blossoming feud starts to take shape.
