Darren Till vs Jorge Masvidal Odds and Betting Prediction
March 14, 2019
Darren “The Gorilla” Till (17-1-1) takes on Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal (32-13) in a welterweight bout at the O2 in London in UFC Fight Night 147 this Saturday 16th March 2019.
British fighter Till, who can count on home support at the O2, will be coming into the bout after suffering the first loss of his career when going down to a second round submission against Tyron Woodley when fighting for the UFC welterweight championship in Dallas, Texas.
The Liverpool-born fighter has a background in Muay Thai and Luta Livre and really needs to claim a win against Masvidal here in order to put his name back in the mix as a contender for major UFC titles.
Masvidal is an experienced 34-year-old American all-rounder who has a record 32 wins from 45 professional MMA contests. That resume consists of 17 wins by decision, 13 by knockout and two submission victories. He’s undeniably capable of causing Till plenty of problems at his best.
On the downside, “Gamebred” has lost each of his last two fights, beaten by Demian Maia on a split decision at UFC 211 in Dallas and also losing by decision by Stephen Thompson at UFC 217 in New York in his last fight. Fears that he could be past his peak are accentuated by the fact that he has lost four of his last seven fights.
