Chaos at UFC London.
Jorge Masvidal returned to the Octagon on Saturday night, headlining the UFC Fight Night 147 at The 02 Arena opposite England’s Darren Till.
The returning American pulled off a stunner as he finished “The Gorilla,” who was the odds favourite to win the welterweight clash.
In what could be a huge knockout of the year contender, Masvidal landed a three-punch combo in the second round, which sent Till down the mat unconscious.
But it seemed that the American wants more after that finish.
Moments after his scary knockout of Till, The American fighter left the reporter in a backstage post-fight interview to throw hands with Leon Edwards in a heated altercation.
Edwards, who also won in the UFC London Card against Gunnar Nelson, might potentially take on the main event winner next, who happened to be Masvidal.
There was still no confirmed reason on what caused the backstage fight,but could this be an early build up?
