UFC Fight Night: Till vs. Masvidal (also known as UFC on ESPN+ 5 or UFC Fight Night 147) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on March 16, 2019 at The O2 Arena in London, England.
Alessio Di Chirico was expected to face Tom Breese at the event. However, Di Chirico pulled out of the fight in early January citing an undisclosed injury and subsequent surgery. On January 8, it was reported that The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil middleweight winner Cezar Ferreira will be his replacement. Ferreira and Breese were expected to meet at UFC Fight Night: Magny vs. Ponzinibbio in November 2018, but Breese pulled out due to injury. In turn, Ferreira withdrew from the bout on February 1, citing a knee injury. Breese is now expected to face Ian Heinisch.
