Speaking on ESPN First Take with Stephen A. Smith and Domonique Foxworth, Masvidal spoke about his tough weight cut: "Yeah I got 20 pounds to go. I'm taking the fight on 6 days notice."
The 35-year old is no stranger to intense weight-cuts and confirmed he must get down to 170lbs in a extremely short window - which perplexed host Smith, who asked him: "You gotta lose 20 pounds in 6 days?"
The Miami fighter replied: "Yes sir when they made the fight official I was 191 pounds. So Friday, I gotta lose that weight."
