Jorge Masvidal believes he is the solution to Darren Till’s problem.
On March 16, the UFC will return to London, England. UFC on ESPN+ 5 will be held inside the O2 Arena. There were rumours that the UFC wanted Darren Till to fight Colby Covington. With Covington and the Dana White current situation the match-up appears to be unlikely.
Masvidal had a bout set up against Nick Diaz at UFC 235 on March 2, but those plans went away when Diaz claimed he never agreed to the bout. Masvidal hasn’t fought since Nov. 2017 and wants to get back inside the Octagon soon.
He took to Twitter to challenge Till:
“I hear you having the same probs I am trying to find someone to fight you in your backyard. I love fighting in other people’s backyards. I’m game if UFC can make it happen.”
This would be another big opportunity for Masvidal if he gets the fight. His last outing was against Stephen Thompson, falling short via unanimous decision.
Till is coming off a welterweight title bout against Tyron Woodley. While “The Gorilla” had a lot of hype going into the bout, he was no match for Woodley. Till ended up being submitted in the second round.
