With a total of 47 MMA fights under his belt, he is one of the biggest veterans of the sport. However, as UFC 244: Diaz vs Masvidal approaches, could it be the last fight of his career?
Win or lose, there’s a good chance that Jorge Masvidal is likely to retire after his fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 244.

UFC 244 Masvidal vs Diaz: Tale of the Tape
Diaz vs Masvidal was sparked off after Nate Diaz’s post-match comments after his return at UFC 241 where he defeated Anthony Pettis. He called out Masvidal saying that there has to be only one ‘gangster’ in the company and that the two should fight it out to prove it. Dana White subsequently announced this match officially for UFC 244!
A special ‘BMF’ Belt has been created for this fight – as it would prove who the Baddest Mother F*cker in UFC truly is! Interestingly, this has caught the attention of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who has now confirmed his presence at the event and will be awarding the winner with the belt!
