Not sure what to expect from this one, could be the first competitive fight hopefully. Tyler should have a massive size advantage on fight day.
tbh Nordine doesnt look very small

Nordine probably cuts crazy weight to make 170. He looks quite strong for 185 on this show. All early indications is that this fight is going to be a war.

yup, he's fighting at 185.

There aren't many true 170's and 185'ers on the show. Most are fighting a weight class up.

yeah, it was very confusing how Cote announced that the next fight would be at middleweight.

You'd think 13 pounds would be no worries, but they seemed to be tipping their hat at something this episode.

They already showed quick footage of both guys fighting. Tyler lands a spinning elbow to Nordine's head actually.

Yeah, I know they fought. The footage and on Tyler's twitter account Vik Grujic says what a great fight it is.
Maybe it was just about how much he hates the diet, but they always seem to try and edit in some sort of narrative. I'm wondering if he has a really hard cut.

Both Tyler and Nordine are fighting at 185. Both fighters only fight at welterweight when they have a full camp to cut the weight (aside from Tyler who only recently moved up to middleweight).
