The UFC is back in England this week, and a pair of key welterweight fights headline the card.

UFC on ESPN+ 5 takes place Saturday at The O2 in London. The card streams on ESPN+.

(Click here to open a PDF of the staff picks grid in a separate window.)

In the main event, England’s own Darren Till (17-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) takes on veteran Jorge Masvidal (32-13 MMA, 9-6 UFC). Till is coming off a title-fight loss this past fall and looking to rebound. He’s more than a 2-1 favorite, and 10 of our 13 MMA Junkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers are picking him to win in front of his home fans.

In the co-feature, England’s Leon Edwards (16-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) takes on Gunnar Nelson (17-3-1 MMA, 8-3 UFC). Edwards is a slight favorite, but Nelson has the edge from our pickers with the narrowest of margins at 7-6.

Also on the main card, former light heavyweight title challenger Volkan Oezdemir (15-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) takes on unbeaten up-and-comer Dominick Reyes (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC), who is a -250 favorite. Reyes is one of two unanimous picks from our staff members at 13-0.

The other unanimous nod goes to Jack Marshman (22-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC), who opens up the main card in a middleweight fight against John Phillips (21-8 MMA, 0-2 UFC). Marshman only is about a -150 favorite, but he’s got a 13-0 shutout from our pickers.

England’s Nathaniel Wood (15-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has a big 11-2 edge in the picks in his bantamweight fight against Jose Quinonez (7-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC), who comes in on a four-fight winning streak. But Wood nearly is a 3-1 favorite in their bout.

And Claudio Silva (12-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) only is a slight favorite in his welterweight fight against England’s Danny Roberts (16-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC), but he has a whopping 10-3 lead in the picks.

In the MMA Junkie reader consensus picks, Till (67 percent), Nelson (60 percent), Reyes (71 percent), Wood (79 percent), Silva (66 percent) and Marshman (81 percent) are the choices.

Check out all the picks above.
