Many fans have wondered what would happen if they ran it back. Well, now we’ll get the chance to find out, but we’ll do so inside the squared circle.

A lot of people have had their say on this matchup and how they believe it’ll play out. The latest has been Michael Bipsing, who gave a full prediction on the contest.

Bisping’s Masvidal/Diaz prediction

“Now in terms of who I think wins this fight, I have already alluded to it, I’ve got Masvidal winning this one,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel. He won the first one. The first one was kind of a beatdown.

“Yeah, it was stopped with a cut, but the cut came because Masvidal was all over him. He was faster, he was more powerful, and he was more technical, and I do not see much changing.”

“Nate Diaz isn’t a bad striker, but he’s a better jiu-jitsu guy,” Bisping added. “He’s a far better mixed martial artist. … He’s a boxer with jiu-jitsu but not the best boxer, not the fastest, not the quickest, and the version we saw against Jake Paul, he was a bit out of shape, as well. He struggled a little bit, and he did hit the canvas.”
