MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR FRIDAY: UFC LONDON GETS TILL VS. MASVIDAL, EDWARDS VS. NELSON

الإثنين ١٥ يوليو ٢٠١٩

UFC London is set with its own main and co-main event. The card takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England, and also my ideas about the two new high-profile spells added into the card are under.
Darren Until Armour Jorge Masvidal, UFC Fight Night 147
An exciting welterweight matchup between Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal is defined since the headlining five-round fight at UFC Fight Night 147. ESPN broke the news. Until (17-1-1) is 5-1-1 general in the UFC and in his last bout endured his first career loss by entry to champion Tyron Woodley in UFC 228. Until is still one of the most well-known fighters in the division, and all of Europe, so despite the reduction he consistently made a lot of awareness to headline this card in London. He flirted with the notion of moving up to middleweight but decided to stay at welterweight to receive his hands on Masvidal, who stylistically should wear a fantastic struggle against Till. Masvidal (32-13) is 9-6 overall in the UFC and has not fought since a 2017 decision loss to Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson. He has not actually won a fight in nearly two decades because a TKO win over Donald Cerrone, but is still clearly a skilled and dangerous fighter. Masvidal was presumed to fight Nick Diaz at UFC 235, but that struggle fizzled and he’ll now take on Till.
I’m expecting a very competitive struggle between Till and Masvidal, however since he is from England and contemplating all the betting support he generally gets, I fully expect Till to be the preferred here. I really do think it is a close fight but would definitely be interested in Masvidal if he’s available at a plus amount.
Leon Edwards vs. Gunnar Nelson, UFC Fight Night 147
At the same time, a welterweight bout between contenders Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson is going to be the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 147. Edwards (16-3) is 8-2 at the UFC and is riding a quiet six-fight win streak at the moment using a decision win over Donald Cerrone in his last outing. He’s quietly developed into one of the best welterweights in the UFC, but was waiting to get his hands on a top-10 opponent. He has finally found a taker in the form of Nelson, who is coming from a huge win over Alex Oliveira in UFC 231. Nelson (17-3-1) rode a 1.5 decades layoff to the Oliveira fight but absolutely dominated him to get a few of their biggest wins of his UFC career up to now. He’s never risen to the championship level that lots of observers of the game expected of him at one point in time, but he has nonetheless recognized himself to be a good fighter at 170lbs, and the win over Oliveira showed just how good he is at his finest.
This looks like a different aggressive fight. Edwards has shown a yearlong game in his last couple of fights but Nelson is obviously an incredibly-dangerous finisher and is coming from a large win. Based on the recent triumph over Oliviera I’d suppose Nelson is pegged as the favorite here, but I think Edwards could have a good deal of risks in what should be a very close fight.
