UFC 244: Jorge Masvidal-Nate Diaz Is Miami Vs. Stockton
The "BMF" belt will be on the line from Madison Square Garden in New York City when Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal headline UFC 244.
We still have a few events and several days to get through, but the intensity surrounding UFC 244 on November 2 continues to amp up.
In all, UFC 244 will become the 500th live event for the mixed martial arts promotion. And they will honor it in a special way.
While not to be recognized as an official championship, a specially-made BMF belt will be on the line. Either Masvidal or Diaz will walk out of Madison Square Garden as the “Baddest Mother (Expletive).”
UFC 244 Promo: Miami Vs. Stockton
Fan favorites for their no nonsense, take no prisoners style in the Octagon, welterweights Diaz and Masvidal come into this highly anticipated bout on the heels of recent wins that have them showing prime form. In July, Miami’s Masvidal followed up his knockout of Darren Till with the fastest knockout in UFC history as he finished Ben Askren in five seconds. Not to be outdone, Stockton’s Diaz returned from nearly three years on the sidelines in August with a stellar victory over Anthony Pettis. After the fight, Diaz welcomed a showdown with Masvidal, and “Gamebred” eagerly accepted, setting up a November to remember in the Big Apple. UFC 244 is Saturday, November 2 live on Pay-Per-View.
