UFC on ESPN+ 5 took place from the O2 Arena in London, England earlier today (Sat. March 16, 2019).
In the main event of the night, former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till made his return to the cage. He stepped in to welcome back Jorge Masvidal after over a year away from competition. Despite all the hype behind “The Gorilla” in his hometown, it was “Gamebred” who left victorious.
After overcoming a fast-paced attack from Till early on, Masvidal caught Till in the second round with a hellacious left hand. The punch knocked Till out cold for the first time in his career. Check out how the mixed martial arts (MMA) community reacted to the shocking stoppage on Twitter here:
