The Ultimate Fighting Championship is returning to London almost one year to the day since its last event there, with a card headlined by a pivotal welterweight matchup between Darren Till and Jorge Masvidal.
Till hit the scales at 171 pounds, as he prepares to face perennial contender Masvidal (171) in the UFC Fight Night 147 main event this Saturday at the O2 Arena in London. Co-headlining the card will be a welterweight scrap between the surging Leon Edwards (170) and submission specialist Gunnar Nelson (170.5), and all four made weight without issue at Friday's weigh-ins.
UFC Fight Night 147 "Till vs. Masvidal," which airs live on ESPN+ at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT, also features a light heavyweight matchup between former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir (205) and the undefeated Dominick Reyes (206). A pair of bantamweights will square off, as former Cage Warriors Fighting Championship bantamweight champ Nathaniel Wood (135.5) meets "The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America" Season 1 finalist Jose Alberto Quinonez (135.5). At welterweight, Danny Roberts (170) tries to put a stop to the 12-fight win streak of Claudio Henrique da Silva (170). Rounding out the main card will be a middleweight battle between former Cage Warriors middleweight champion Jack Marshman (*188) and former BAMMA middleweight king John Phillips (185).
One fighter did miss weight: Marshman (*188), who came in two pounds over the middleweight limit, and he has been fined 20 percent of his purse.
