Main Event Set; Jack Marshman Heavy

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.
