Masvidal took to twitter recently to address Till saying ‘I hear you having the same probs I am trying to find someone to fight you in your backyard. I love fighting in other peoples backyards. I’m game if ufc can make it happen’
Apparently the UFC were agreeable to the match up and have added a phenomenal main event to the upcoming London card.
