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

UFC London is place with its main and co-main occasion. The card takes place March 16 at The O2 Arena in London, England, and my ideas on both 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 Until and Jorge Masvidal is set since the headlining five-round fight at UFC Fight Night 147. ESPN broke the information. Till (17-1-1) is 5-1-1 overall at the UFC and in his last bout suffered his first career loss by submission to champion Tyron Woodley in UFC 228. Until is still one of the most popular fighters in the division, and all of Europe, so despite the reduction he consistently made a lot of sense to headline this card at London. He flirted with the idea of going 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 from the UFC and hasn’t fought since a 2017 decision loss to Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson. He has not really won a fight in almost two years because a TKO win over Donald Cerrone, but is still clearly a dangerous and skilled fighter. Masvidal was presumed to combat Nick Diaz at UFC 235, but that fight fizzled and he’ll now take on forever.
I am expecting a really competitive fight between Till and Masvidal, but since he’s from England and considering all of the betting support he generally gets, I totally expect forever to be the preferred here. I really do think it is a close fight but could definitely be interested in Masvidal if he is available at a plus number.
Leon Edwards vs. Gunnar Nelson, UFC Fight Night 147
As well, a welterweight bout between contenders Leon Edwards and Gunnar Nelson will function as co-main occasion of UFC Fight Night 147. Edwards (16-3) is 8-2 in the UFC and is riding a quiet six-fight win series at the moment with a decision win over Donald Cerrone in his final outing. He has quietly developed to one of the best welterweights in the UFC, but was waiting to receive his hands on a top-10 opponent. He’s finally found a taker in the form of Nelson, who’s coming off of a huge win over Alex Oliveira in UFC 231. Nelson (17-3-1) spanned a 1.5 years layoff into the Oliveira battle but absolutely dominated him to get a few of the biggest wins of his UFC career up to now. He’s never risen to the championship level that many observers of the game expected he at a point in time, but he’s nonetheless recognized himself to be a good fighter in 170lbs, along with the triumph over Oliveira revealed precisely how good he is at his finest.
This looks like a different competitive struggle. Edwards has shown a well-rounded game in his last couple of fights but Nelson is clearly an incredibly-dangerous finisher and is coming off of a big win. Based on the recent win over Oliviera I’d guess Nelson is pegged as the favorite here, but I think Edwards could possess a good deal of dangers in what should be a really close fight.
