A key welterweight bout between fan favorites Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal headlined tonight’s UFC 244 event at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The winner of tonight’s headliner would be awarded the promotions new ‘BMF’ Title (Baddest Mother F*cker).
Following his impressive victory over ‘Showtime’, the Stockton Native called for a fight with Jorge Masvidal to determine who is the ‘baddest mother*cker’ in the game.
The spectacular flying knee finish served as ‘Gamebred’s’ second knockout victory in a row, as he had previously starched Darren Till at UFC London.
Tonight’s highly anticipated UFC 244 main event lived up to the hype while it lasted as Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal went to war for the fans in attendance at Madison Square Garden. While tonight’s headliner showcased Diaz’s toughness, it was clear that ‘Gamebred’ was up on the judges scorecards through three rounds of action. Unfortunately for fight fans, the doctor stopped the contest in between rounds three and four due to a cut suffered by the Stockton Native. With that, Masvidal was awarded the TKO victory.
