Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, UFC, Boxing, Rematch

Diaz (21-13 MMA, 0-1 Boxing) and Masvidal (35-17 MMA) are set to collide for a second time this evening in Anaheim California. The pair first met in November of 2019 at UFC 244, with the promotion’s ‘BMF Title‘ up for grabs. ‘Gamebred’ ultimately won that bout by second-round TKO, this after causing multiple lacerations to the face of the Stockton native.

This time around the pair will be squaring off in a 175lbs boxing match slated for ten rounds.

Nate Diaz most recently competed in combat sports in August of last year, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Jake Paul in a bout that served as his professional boxing debut. Prior to that setback, ‘The Stockton Slugger’ had earned a submission victory over Tony Ferguson at UFC 279.

Meanwhile, Jorge Masvidal was last seen in action at UFC 287, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Gilbert Burns. That setback marked Masvidal’s fourth in a row, as he had previously suffered Octagon defeats at the hands of Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman x2.

While Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal are both marquee names, ‘The Stockton Slugger’ will be making nearly double as much as ‘Gamebred’ for their boxing match this evening.

That’s according to MMA Fighting, who obtained the following payouts from The California State Athletic Commission earlier today:

Nate Diaz $500,000
