On the 16th of March, 2019, the UFC put on an event in London, England, UK - UFC Fight Night 147. Despite talks of a potential move up to middleweight, welterweight Darren ‘The Gorilla Till faced off with Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal as the headliner. The co-main consisted of Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards who last fought Donald Cerrone and won by Unanimous Decision in 23, June, 2018 versus Gunnar Nelson who also won his last bout via Rear-Naked Choke, which was against Alex Oliveira December 8. 2018 at UFC 231.
On this episode of the show, Zane Simon and Eddie Mercado of The 6th Round podcast join Flyin’ Brian J to discuss the nights violence and nonsensical post-fight antics.
This post-fight show is aimed at recapping all of the action from this event with the live viewer serving as the co-host. We go over post-fight ratings, talk about technique, discuss WTF moments from the card, and give out pretend bonuses.
