The victory over Till is what kicked off a seismic year for the 34-year-old who went on to defeat Ben Askren with the quickest knockout in UFC history in July.
Defeating Askren is what set up his inaugural BMF Title bout against Diaz.
Till also had a productive evening on Saturday.
The Liverpudlian managed to defeat Kelvin Gastelum in the co-main event.
It seems that Masvidal's star is continuing to rise and he could be set for a huge fight with Conor McGregor next year.
They have gone back and forth on Twitter in recent days and Masvidal ended up challenging McGregor to a fight.
Speaking on the Helwani Show, he said: "Call Dana, tell your assistant's assistant to call Dana White and throw some numbers at our way.
"If you want to get your a** kicked in April, just stop talking bro. We're going to scrap, we're going to scrap. Just sign the contract, then we can do all the sh*t talking."
Do you think Masvidal will end up facing off with McGregor?
