Who’s ready to see Nate Diaz take on Jorge Masvidal? The upcoming UFC 244 event is drawing near and it’s also drawing in quite a buzz online, with people getting excited to see how the night ends.
Nate Diaz has people excited to watch the match. After all, it wasn’t that long ago when he, along with Conor McGregor, held the record for the highest UFC pay-per-view buy rate for their UFC 202 meet-up from back in 2016. Nowadays, he’s the 7th highest-ranking fighter in the Welterweight category.
For his part, Jorge Masvidal, who ranks third in the Welterweight category, holds the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, as his competitor managed to stay on his feet for a full 5 seconds. He’s had 47 pro MMA fights so far, so it’s clear to say he knows what he’s doing.
The winner of the Masvidal vs. Diaz fight will be awarded the newly created BMF title and rumor has it that The Rock will be present at the event to wrap the belt around the winner’s waist. So, if you’re a fan of Dwayne Johnson, there’s all the more reason to watch the fight.
Although Diaz vs. Masvidal is certainly the star of the show, there are other fight cards scheduled for the night. Here’s the list:
|UFC 244: Main Card|
|Welterweight||Jorge Masvidal||Nate Diaz|
|Middleweight||Kelvin Gastelum||Darren Till|
|Welterweight||Stephen Thompson||Vincente Luque|
|Heavyweight||Derrick Lewis||Blagoy Ivanov|
