How do you figure that? Their combined win/loss are 54-24. Masvidal's fought a lot, his record is 34-13 which is perfectly decent. Diaz is 20-11 but most of his fights have been in the UFC against decent opposition so he's better than the record suggests.

I don't get why some people seem overly eager to discredit both like they're bums or bad fighters, they're absolutely not.

My maths are bad sorry. Hey I love both fighters and this fight, who doesn't ? I just think it's funny for a professional sport. To ad to the circus one of the fighters popped and was cleared within hours. 😄

I think Till is too gung-ho for his own good. In a way it's commendable, but I don't think anyone would have begrudged him a lower ranked opponent at '85.

High stakes roll - getting ko'd successively in quick succession (not to mention the strikes he ate from Woodley while downed) could be career altering at this level. They seem to spar hard at that gym too...

I think Masvidal gets it done in the main. I think he gets the KO and is on the way to mainstream superstardom.

Google is your friend there, which is where I would get my answer from as I'm not sure on exact times.

Sensational fight card.

I worry for Till with the late arrival, can't be good.

Kelvin will be better off taking this to the ground to get the win, given the size of Till, I don't think he should stand and trade punches with Till.

I think Masvidal will beat Nate and the show will go on, could be an absolute classic considering both their styles.

I'm interested to see how Johnny Walker gets on too, it's gonna be a long night but one I'm really looking forward to.

Who cares about losses? Did Anderson Silva have losses? Fedor? Liddell? Couture? Hughes? GSP? Of course. Even Jon Jones technically has a loss.

The "no-losses" brigade hang out in Floyd Mayweather's Instagram comments. Not here.

Just to expand on this point. All of the Numbered Cards are pay Per View in the USA.

In Britain & Ireland this card is not a Pay per View if you have a subscription to BT Sports.

How can masvidal win this for anyone picking him? Don't think he can knock Nate out, don't think he will submit him, he'll hardly out cardio him. Hard to see how Nate wins either to be honest, a proper 50/50 fight.

Hoping Till KOs Kevin but I think he'll be took down an pummeled.
