Very few words were exchanged before punches were thrown

Jorge Masvidal silenced the O2 arena on Saturday night as he beat Darren Till with a brutal second round knockout.

Liverpool’s Till enjoyed some early success against ‘Gamebred’, flooring Masvidal in the opening frame of the welterweight clash.

But the American Masvidal bounced back from this early setback as he landed a left hook on Till, who was left unconscious on the mat.

In the aftermath of the fight, Masvidal seemed calm and collected during his interview in the octagon, but tempers flared backstage when he encountered Leon Edwards, who beat Gunnar Nelson earlier on by a split decision.

Masvidal cut an interview short as he spotted Edwards backstage. The pair confronted each other and began throwing punches after a matter of seconds.
