UFC Fight Night 147 results, highlights: Jorge Masvidal puts Darren Till out cold with vicious KO


The veteran Masvidal (33-13), fresh off a 17-month layoff, knocked former title challenger Darren Till out cold in Round 2 of their main event bout at UFC Fight Night at the O2 Arena in London.


Not only did Masvidal shake off a two-fight losing skid, he sent the rising British star Till (17-2-1) to a devastating second straight defeat of his own just six months removed from a one-sided loss to then-champion Tyron Woodley.


As soon as the action was restarted, the southpaw Till closed distance and dropped Masvidal with a left cross to the side of the face.


Although Till was clearly landing the bigger shots with his left hand, he was only connecting on one at a time as Masvidal used his patience against him and began to flurry.


Masvidal turned southpaw and floated a jab with his right hand before coming right back with a looping left that appeared to knock Till unconscious upon impact.


Referee Marc Goddard leaped in to stop the action at 3:05 after the fall caused Till to hit the back of his head on the canvas.
