UFC 244 Main Event: The Story So Far
The story so far has been quite interesting. So much so that names from across the world of sports and entertainment, including Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, have been invested in it! The Rock recently confirmed that he will be appearing at the fight at Madison Square Garden and the winner will be awarded the ‘BMF Belt’ by him!
However, unconfirmed reports on Twitter are making rounds that Jorge Masvidal might have to pull out of the Masvidal vs Diaz main event at UFC 244 because of an injury he has sustained while preparing for his match against Nate Diaz. Masvidal won’t consider heading into this match while injured, given how important this fight is.
So did Masvidal not get hurt after all? Didn’t ariel say he got injured and out of the fight?
