While Khabib vs Poirier was the focus of UFC 242, a major announcement was made during the event which got fans of the sport excited! Diaz vs Masvidal is now official! The two men have been taking shots at each other for some time now – and UFC has created a special ‘BMF’ Belt for them (which obviously stands for Bad Mother F*cker)
The fight is to prove who the ultimate BMF in the company is, and both Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz want to prove that it is indeed them!
Nate Diaz vs Jorge Masvidal will headline UFC244 🔥
Gastelum vs Till is already on that card!

Diaz vs Masvidal Confirmed for UFC 244 Main Event
The fact that this fight is confirmed makes the fans really excited. Masvidal was challenged by Diaz after his return in UFC 241, where he faced off against Anthony Pettis and won the fight rather comfortably in the co-main event. It was earlier suspected to take place at UFC 245, but will now happen one PPV before that – and that too at Madison Square Garden!
With the two men now confirmed to lock horns, UFC wants to make sure their personalities are the focus of this fight. Both the men have this ‘badass’ attitude which reflects in their in-ring style as well as their persona beyond the ring. Hence a BMF belt (which will be a one-and-done thing) is being created for the fight!
