The loss was the first of Till’s career. Masvidal, who has been fighting as a pro since 2003, is competing for the first time in more than a year. Masvidal is on the second two-fight losing skid of his lengthy career.
In the co-main event, Leon Edwards, who has called out both Till and Masvidal in the past, faces Gunnar Nelson in another important 170-pound matchup.
Following the main event, the UFC will hold the post-fight press conference for the fight card. The competitors from the main event, as well as other main card fighters, are expected to spend some time with the media after the headlining bout ends.

UFC Fight Night London fast approaching, Marley has carefully studied every matchup, identified the best value in the UFC odds, and released his MMA picks for every single fight. He’s sharing them only over at SportsLine.
Marley knows the 26-year-old Till is eager to get back into contention for another title shot after he fell short against the powerful Woodley in his last bout. Till rose into contention by winning his first six UFC matches, which included a knockout of Donald Cerrone and a decision win over Stephen Thompson last May.
Till faces an equally motivated opponent in 34-year-old Masvidal, who returns following the longest layoff his career. Masvidal hasn’t won in over two years and had a planned bout against UFC icon Nick Diaz called off last year. Till is noted for his knockout power, but 10 of Masvidal’s 13 career defeats have come by decision.
