UFC 244 takes place on the 2nd of November at Madison Square Garden in New York in a highly anticipated 5 round bout where the winner between Nate Diaz (20-11-0) and Jorge Masvidal (34-13-0) will take the Baddest Mother F**ker title which will be handed over by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“It’s one of those fights that’s fun, that’s interesting, that the fans are into, that you want to see for five rounds. Yet it’s too big for a Fight Night, so we made it a pay-per-view,” White said. “I will end up stacking this card with killer fights, and the main event will be those two.”
Diaz called for the fight against Masvidal after an impressive performance to defeat Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision at UFC 241. Masvidal said he was down, riding the momentum of back-to-back devastating knockouts of Darren Till and Ben Askren this year. The latter, which came in a record-breaking 5 seconds at UFC 239 in July, has made Masvidal more popular than he’s ever been.
