British trash talk is just as corny as you might imagine and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight veteran, Jorge Masvidal, wasn’t having any of it.
“Gamebred” is scheduled to fight Darren Till in the UFC on ESPN+ 5 main event on Sat., March 16, 2019 inside O2 Arena in London, England. Elsewhere on the card, Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson collide for a spot in the 170-pound title race.
Edwards had a real problem with the way the promotion designed the London fight card and was complaining about “The Gorilla” long before pen was ever put to paper. So, not surprisingly, “Rocky” continued to throw shade — or whatever the kids are calling these days — once the mics went live across the pond.
“One hundred percent, I feel like I should’ve been the main event,” Edwards told MMAjunkie.com. “I called out both guys, Masvidal and Till. They both turned it down. This was not the (expletive) main event to make, him and Jorge. It was me vs. him. Who’s the best welterweight in the UK? That fight should’ve happened. Not Jorge.”
“Your time will come,” Till fired back. “I just know one thing: I’ll punch a hole in your face. Your fight will come, and when it comes, you’ll get it. Right now in England, I’m the No. 1. C’mon Leon, don’t kid yourself, mate”
Masvidal’s response: “Does anybody have the WiFi password?”
