Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal are among two of the toughest men in UFC. UFC 244 Masvidal vs Diaz is all set to be a main event which will see these two collide for the first time. Both the men are legit tough-guys and have proven their mettle over the years. This fight is technically a non-title main event, a rarity in UFC!
We call it ‘technically’ a non-title bout because there is a title which has specifically been created for the purpose of this fight: The BMF title. The winner of this fight would get to call himself the ‘Baddest Motherfucker’ in the company and would hence earn major bragging rights!
On the @LeBatardShow, Jorge Masvidal says he’s getting PPV points for the Diaz fight. First time in his career. So, not only is he headlining a PPV (at MSG, no loss) in a non-title fight (rare), he’s getting points, too. This is incredibly rare. Testament to how big this is.
