Jorge Masvidal brought out the upset axe on Saturday night and shocked the MMA world after he finished Darren Till in brutal fashion in the main event of the UFC Fight Night 147.
Dubbed as the underdog in this welterweight clash, “Gamebred” defied the odds and announced his return to the cage with a scintillating victory after being sidelined for almost two years.
He hasn’t fought since losing to Stephen Thompson at UFC 217 in November 2017.
Masvidal is finally back and he did it in style, knocking “The Gorilla” out cold in the second round with a monstrous three-punch combo, leaving the sold-out crowd at The 02 Arena in shock.

Following almost two-year of hiatus, the American welterweight returned to actions on Saturday night against the division’s rising star and England’s local hero, Darren Till.
Masvidal marched into the main event clash as the underdog and in the early goings, he looked like he was going to be easily handled.
Till floored him in the first round with a left hook and received more punishment during a ground and pound before Masvidal turned the tables around in the second, knocking Till out cold in front of the London crowd.
“Gamebred” turned to a powerful combination to finish Till, en route to scoring his first win since January 2017.
“I need that belt wrapped around my waist. Dana White get behind me. I might not have a whole country behind me but I have the whole world behind me,” he said in the post-fight interview.
