“Gamebred” returned to the Octagon in spectacular fashion on
Saturday, knocking out recent title challenger Darren Till
3:05 into the second round of their headlining tilt at the O2
Arena. Masvidal wasn’t done scrapping, either. The Miami resident
walked off during an interview to throw hands with welterweight
Edwards backstage shortly after his victory. While Masvidal vs.
Edwards is a topic for another day, the
American Top Team product is back in our welterweight Top 10 at
No. 9. Till, meanwhile, could very easily be on a three-fight skid,
but for now “The Gorilla” clings to the tenth spot.
Elsewhere, unbeaten light heavyweight talent Dominick
Reyes wasn’t dominant at UFC London, but he did just enough to
get a split verdict over former title challenger Volkan
Oezdemir. Reyes still has room to grow and climbs one spot,
from No. 10 to No. 9. Meanwhile, Edwards, who vanquished Gunnar
Nelson in London remains on the welterweight bubble in a
division loaded with talent.
