Till hasn’t fought since September, where he was defeated for the first time in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley successfully defended his throne against the Englishman, submitting him in the second round of their UFC 228 main event.
As for Masvidal, he hasn’t fought since being defeated by Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in November of 2017. Thompson bested Masvidal via unanimous decision at UFC 217 in New York City. Now, both men will get the chance to avenge their latest defeats.
