Jorge Masvidal was planned to fight Nick Diaz at UFC 235 but due to lack of interest of Nick Diaz to fight, Dana White later confirmed that the fight wasn’t happening.
With no fight in 2018, Jorge Masvidal has shown interest to fight this year and is looking for a good opponent to return. Recently, he has called Darren Till for a fight in the UK.
Masvidal took to Twitter and called out Darren Till in a respectful manner. Jorge Masvidal tweeted,
” @darrentill2 I hear you having the same probs I am trying to find someone to fight you in your backyard. I love fighting in other peoples backyards. I’m game if ufc can make it happen.” Darren Till responded the tweet with a gif that clearly shows Till is ready to fight.
