Answering my own question, exciting things do happen in London. This fight night ended like an episode of Law & Order. Daren Till got brutally knocked out and was laid out on the mat like a crime scene sketch. Out cold.
I need to follow Askren on Twitter to find out what happened. Didn’t he say he went to London to call out the winner of this fight? I was expecting him to enter the cage and for somebody to do something.
Exciting things do indeed happen in London. Apparently, Askren doesn’t want any part of Masvidal. Till was handpicked for a reason. He’s probably on a plane right now. Remember, Demian Maia beat Jorge but said he had really good wrestling and was well prepared.
From what I just heard, there was another fight backstage – the after party, I think. Mas just pieced up Leon Edwards. I don’t have any knowledge about the jurisdictional issues, and neither does the UFC official who is at the press conference. Hopefully he’s not arrested. Fine him, sure, but don’t keep his paycheck. Fans on Twitter are loving it, by the way. They (we) are saying Masvidal gets 2 victories tonight. Fantastic.
I had to check Twitter again to see if Askren calls out Masvidal, but I can’t see or hear past these crickets.
