EXCLUSIVE | Pro fighters make their picks for Jorge Masvidal vs Darren Till fight

The UFC is heading back to London, England this Saturday. In the main event of this UFC London card, Englishman Darren Till is looking to get back into the win column as he takes on the dangerous Jorge Masvidal.

Ahead of the fight, BJPENN.com reached out to several pro fighters to get their predictions for the fight. It was a close one, but the majority are leaning toward Till.

Here’s what the fighters had to say:

BJPENN.com Fighter Picks: Jorge Masvidal vs Darren Till

Beneil Dariush, UFC lightweight: Jorge has been out for awhile and Till is hungry. I am going to go with Darren Till.

Matt Brown, UFC welterweight: Jorge Masvidal by decision because he’s more versatile and will nullify Darren Till’s offense. 

Georgi Karakhanyan, Bellator featherweight: That fight, I am a big Jorge Masvidal fan. He has really good boxing, but I think Darren Till will be a little too much for him. I am picking Till.

Blagoy Ivanov, UFC heavyweight: Darren Till for sure.

Christopher Lencioni, Bellator featherweight: I’m going with Jorge Masvidal on that one. He’s got heart. Something that European guy doesn’t have.

Montana De La Rosa, UFC flyweight: I’m going to go with Masvidal, I feel like he is tougher.

Jake Shields, PFL welterweight: Oh man that’s tough. Slight edge to Masvidal. I think Masvidal has slightly more experience and probably better grappling where Till has the size advantage. Both have good striking and are tough. Could go either way but if forced to pick I say Masvidal. 

Jordan Rinaldi, UFC featherweight: That is tricky. Jorge Masvidal is a small 170. He is game but Darren Till is just a monster. He is enormous and I don’t know how he will make weight again. I have to go with Till because of the size. Masvidal is the probably the smallest 170er and Till is probably the biggest. 

Macy Chiasson, UFC bantamweight: I think Darren Till. I would love to see it because I am loving the back-and-forth between him and Ben Askren.

Drew Dober, UFC lightweight: I think Darren Till’s size is going to play an advantage and he will dictate where the fight takes place and really control the pressure. I think Till will win.
