Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender, Darren Till, is probably geared up to shut the mouth of American interloper Ben Askren, especially after this, but that can’t happen unless “The Gorilla” first disposes of longtime veteran Jorge Masvidal, who battles the Liverpool native in the UFC on ESPN+ 5 main event this Sat. (March 16, 2019) inside O2 Arena in London, England.
The two came face-to-face at the conclusion of today’s ceremonial weigh-in event (watch it here), though both combatants kept it cool and their staredown went off without a hitch. The same can be said for the co-main event competitors, Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson, who came nose-to-nose in advance of their three-round affair.
“Rocky” vs. “Gunni.”
