UFC Fight Night 147 Predictions

Can Darren Till show everyone that he deserves a title shot or will Jorge Masvidal spoil the party?

UFC

UFC returns to London's 02 Arena with an exceptional card filled with some of its biggest stars, including a salivating main event scrap between Thai boxing sensation Darren Till and wily veteran Jorge Masvidal.

Following his disappointing outing against former UFC 170lb champion Tyron Woodley, Till will be hoping to get back on the winning track. An impressive finish on Saturday night could be just what he needs to put himself in contention for a shot at newly-crowned champion Kamaru Usman.

However, he's got a more than game opponent in Jorge Masvidal waiting for him.'Gamebred' has earned impressive victories against the likes of Donald Cerrone, Jake Ellenberger and Michael Chiesa during his career and is well known for his well-rounded skill-set. Despite being on a two-fight losing streak, a win against Till could catapult him right back into the welterweight title picture.

Also on the card, surging British welterweight Leon Edwards takes on his toughest task, the always dangerous Gunnar Nelson, in the co-main event and top UFC light heavyweights Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes will face each other in what promises to be an absolute war.

With so much talent gracing the Octagon on Saturday night, we take an in-depth look at the fighters competing and predict who will leave London victorious.
