The Victorians at UFC London, held last Saturday (16th) in England, Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards, played in lamenting scenes after the event. Winners in the main edition beat Darren Till, Masvidal replaced the blows with Edwards, who surpassed Gunnar Nelson in the main event. Confusion was already behind the show's show, and both were to be separated by Ultimate guards.
Masvidal gave an interview for a television station shortly after the triumph, when Edwards went through a close corridor and provoked the American who, after hearing the insults, interrupted the conversation with the journalist and went to meet the English, demanding from the fighter "Repeat" what he said.

UFC president Dana White has been angered by the confusion between the two fighters and is promising to take steps to ensure that the case is not repeated.
"I can not believe this happened. We (UFC) need to do a much better job to ensure that this *** will not happen to any of our events," Dana said, according to journalist Bret Okamoto.
