It was a wild night of fights last Sat. night (Nov. 2, 2019) courtesy of the UFC 244 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside Madison Square Garden in New York City. That’s where Jorge Masvidal was crowned “Baddest Mother Fucker” in all of mixed martial arts (MMA).
With a little help from the cageside physician.
But not long before “Gamebred” sliced and diced Nate Diaz, Darren Till made his successful debut at middleweight, outlasting top contender Kelvin Gastelum after three rounds of somewhat tepid action. Derrick Lewis also won his fight on the judges’ scorecards, as did Stephen Thompson.
Kevin Lee, however, straight up murdered Gregor Gillespie.
