This weekend has an early start for stateside fight fans when the Octagon goes up in London, England for the UFC’s fifth installment on ESPN+.
Darren Till and Leon Edwards, pair of world-ranked welterweights out of the United Kingdom, headline the 13-fight show. But they will not be facing each other.
Till returns from a disappointing result in his first UFC title shot against the pugnacious Jorge Masvidal. His countryman Edwards has a Karate stylist in Gunnar Nelson to worry about in the co-main event.
ESPN+ will broadcast the event in its entirety.
