    Just saw that Ferguson article. Holy * that’s disturbing hope he gets the help he needs.

    Doubt he will ever fight again but the most important thing is to get his mental health back

    Till has serious tactic issues for big fights.

    Someone, maybe him, has curtailed his natural aggression. He’s over thinking things, he should have tried to smash Woodley and Masvidal.

    What a KO though.

    Nuts from Masvidal, what a stupid thing to do.

    Wonder whats went wrong with Tony, might of always been there with him or too many hits to the head over the years. * shame but hope he comes back stronger, a long road ahead of him though.

    What a knockout by Masvidal, his boxing skills are brilliant but I think Till’s loss to Woodley has * with his head and was too hesitant which gave Msavidal the opportunity to slip his punches and get in the pocket, some left hand.

    Difficult to tell from that video.

    If you believe Jorge, Edwards initiated the hand throwing.

    Masvidal is a * fantastic fighter. One of my favourites. Never gives up.. learned from his mistakes very quickly and started seeing the left a mile away. Beautiful how he replicated the same punch Woodley landed on him.

    Sounds harsh as * but jumping around with the likes of Eddie Bravo will be doing Tony no favours.

    Don’t even care if he fights again, hopefully gets healthy for his wife and sons sake.

    yeah sounds like it, it's interesting hearing Masvidal's side of the story, I understand his actions now.

    Starts talking about Edwards 8:40

    Doesn’t really come as a great surprise tbh

    An aggressive cut like that to such a low weight naturally you would lose a considerable amount of muscle and strength.

    Former two-weight champion supposedly has no chance against Masvidal?

    I'm a massive Masvidal fan and actually picked him to beat Till but you're off your head if you think it's a gimme fight of any description for Masvidal. Conor would be favourite.

    Jorge Masvidal has been beat off Benson Henderson, Al Iaquinta, Paul Daley and Lorenz Larkin.

    And folk want to talk about him murdering McGregor :56:

    Casuals.

    Wasn’t Till favourite against Masvidal? Literally counts for nothing.

    Conor will need to knock him out to win and I can’t see anyway that happens at all.

    Totally agree but he was absolutely robbed against Al. He schooled him.
