UFC London results: Jorge Masvidal devastates Darren Till with crushing KO

Messages recommandés

LONDON – Jorge Masvidal (33-13 MMA, 10-6 UFC) started a bit slow but delivered when it mattered most, scoring a highlight-reel finish of Darren Till (17-2-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC).

The welterweight bout was the main event of today’s UFC on ESPN+ 5 show at The O2 in London. It streamed on ESPN+.

The bout opened in incredibly odd fashion, with Masvidal rushing forward and firing a stomping kick that landed directly in the groin. Masvidal immediately apologized, and Till took only a brief break. On the restart, Till landed a clean left hand that sent Masvidal to the floor. Till rushed forward to finish, but Masvidal bucked and rolled and made his wya back to his feet.

Till caught a kick shortly after, dragging Masvidal to the canvas. However, once there, Masvidal was able to get his feet inside and kick Till away, moving back to the feet once more. Once there, Masvidal landed a big kick to the body, then came up short on a takedown.

Till was confident in the center, and he landed a few more straight left hands that Masvidal absorbed with little issue. Fighting with his back to the fence, Masvidal returned fire but was taking some shots to give his own.

Moving back to the center, Masvidal found a few openings on the feet, but Till’s left hand was certainly the most dangerous weapon deployed, and started added hooks and uppercuts to the straight shots, as well.

Till moved forward quickly in the second and rifled out a few jabs before bringing the straight left behind it. Masvidal answered back with powerful hooks, but a Till eyepoke forced a brief stop in the action. On the restart, Masvidal scored an immediate takedown and nearly was able to take the back before Till could get upright and use the fence to peel away the threat.

Till continued to hold the center as the round unfolded. He was measured with his attacks, and for good reason, as Masvidal was delivering heavy counters when possible. Eventually, Masvidal was able to push free, and a huge left hand over the top sent Till crashing to the floor. Another landed on the way down, and Masvidal pounced to finish off the job, though the work was already done.
