Jorge Masvidal Knocks Out Darren Till, Punches Leon Edwards During Interview
Jorge Masvidal had a wild sequence of events Saturday night at UFC Fight Night in London.
Masvidal first knocked out Darren Till in the second round in impressive fashion. He beat the hell out of him with a flurry of shots. Till hit the deck and had no chance. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

However, things took an ugly turn during a post-fight interview. According to ESPN, Leon Edwards walked past and “directed some words toward” towards Masvidal. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)
The American-born fighter had a very calm and reasonable response, which involved leaving the interview to attack Edwards. ESPN reported the police eventually visited with both fighters in London.
Watch in the insane altercation below.

I can guarantee you of that. White told ESPN after the altercation, “I can’t even believe that this happened. We need to do a much better job of making sure this s— doesn’t happened at any of our events.”
As for Masvidal, he claimed he “was scared out of my life.” I’m not buying that for a second.

My guess is that White is about to hand down a pretty hefty punishment. Play stupid games and win stupid prizes.
