    This is career suicide for the Liverpudlian, at least that's what it looks like to me.

    I'm happy that Till is moving up a division, and I think that will improve his form in the cage, but Gastelum is WAAAAAAAAY to much for him. He should be fighting someone on the level of Brad Tavares. The guy was losing in one-sided fashion to Woodley even before Woodley bombarded him and subbed him, and then he got flatlined by Masvidal in Hendo vs. Bisping fashion in his next fight.

    Kelvin is a proven middleweight with a lethal left hand and a dangerous blend of wrestling and BJJ. Hard to see where Till has an edge outside of the muay thai. In most aspect of the game he's badly outclass.

    Till isn't a big puncher and Gastelum has a granite chin, so Till will basically have to avoid submissions and knockout bombs for the entire fight just to win on points. RIP Till's career.

    Gastelum should have this done in a round, bad move from Till.

    Lol it's clear that the UFC just want to be rid of Till at this point. They wouldn't have made this fight if they didn't hate and/or want him gone.

    Gastelum is no masvidal and till will have more stamina strength and power in moving up.
    Good fight
    Masvidal was just a bad matchUp for till. You can’t take those bodyshots with a weight cut that tremendous. No way.
    Gastelum was signed to fight masvidal at one point aswell. He lucked out however he managed to get out of that beating.

    I don't get it do you?It's like Hugie Fury in boxing,after so many bad losses you'd think a rebuilding period against lesser ranked opponents would be the way to go?
    Can't fault their bravery or daring but it reeks of desperation or even worse being thrown to the wolves.

    You have to wonder if he's even got a choice and being thrown to the wolves as it just doesn't make any sense?

    I know..apparently Till really wanted the fight so I seriously think he has lost one brain cell too many. Will still tune in to watch it tho

    I find it baffling. It seems like in boxing guys are better about getting tune-up fights after bad losses. In the UFC it seems like you see more cases like this. Chris Weidman is another case; fighting someone as dangerous as Gegard Mousasi after two hellacious losses is a head-scratcher, and I think Travis Browne drove his career straight into the ditch by losing to Cain, Werdum, and Dereck Lewis back to back to back.
