UFC London (Fight Night 147) Results

UFC London (Fight Night 147) Results

On Thursday we gave you a break down of the weigh-ins, and yesterday we gave our predictions for the fights – now we’re giving you a breakdown of the results from UFC London; Till vs Masvidal.


Mike Grundy (145) vs. Nad Narimani (145.5) – Grundy secured the first stoppage of the night, landing a big left hook in round two that wobbled Narimani, before chasing him down and finishing with punches.

Priscila Cachoeira (125) vs. Molly McCann (126) – Meatball Molly won via unanimous decision, overcoming a crazy eye injury and showing off a well rounded game to become the first English woman to win in the octagon.

Danny Henry (146) vs. Dan Ige (146) – Ige realised he wasn’t being paid hourly on this one, heading straight out, taking Henry down to the canvas and securing a rear naked choke in round one.

Tom Breese (186) vs. Ian Heinisch (186) – Unfortunately Tom Breese had to pull out of this fight hours before the start of the fight due to health issues, in a repeat of UFC Fight Night 107 two years ago, where he had to do the same.

Nicolae Negumereanu (204) vs. Saparbeg Safarov (205) – Unfortunately the unanimous decision win by Shafarov was overshadowed by the fact that he was grabbing the fence at every opportunity (costing him a point in round one), and even landing an dirty elbow after the ref called break – there was a solid argument for a DQ loss, but he managed to salvage the win.

Marc Diakiese (155) vs. Joe Duffy (155) – Diakiese put on a striking clinic against Duffy ending his 3 fight losing streak on his 26th birthday, and showing how much it meant to him with an emotional post fight interview.

Arnold Allen (145) vs. Jordan Rinaldi (145) – Allen pulled out the win against Rinaldi, showing his great takedown defense and well rounded striking skills.

Main Card

Jack Marshman (188)* vs. John Phillips (185) – Marshman managed to just edge his way to a split decision win to settle the debate over who the best Welsh middleweight is, overcoming being dropped by a big left hook in the first round that Philips didn’t follow up on to take over and control the fight for the remainder.

Danny Roberts (170) vs. Claudio Silva (170) – We said in our predictions that we felt that BJJ Black Belt Silva would get the nod for this one, and he pulled it off via armbar in the third round.

Jose Quinonez (135.5) vs. Nathaniel Wood (135.5) – The Prospect carried on his winning ways with another great performance, proving to be too much for Quinonez. His hard work paid off with a third submission in as many fights, this one via rear naked choke in the second round.

Volkan Oezdemir (205) vs. Dominick Reyes (206) – Reyes beat Oezdemir via split decision, but it was certainly a controversial decision with a lot of people saying that rounds one and two were clearly Oezdemir’s, and while he took the third round off they felt he should still have got the decision.

Leon Edwards (170) vs. Gunnar Nelson (170.5) – Edwards said before this fight that he was going to beat Gunnar Nelson at his own, which would have been fair to assume was a risky game plan, but is exactly what he did. Out wrestling and striking Nelson over three rounds (including a massive elbow to polish off round two) to secure the split decision victory.

Darren Till (171) vs. Jorge Masvidal (171) – This was probably the shocker of the whole card. Writing off Masvidal is never a good idea, but we predicted Darren’s size and power would prove too much. In fact Till started off out-striking him, but Masvidal started reading what was coming and looked to counter, eventually it paid off in a big way with a nasty knock out.
