UFC 244 Preview
In the main event, welterweights Nate Diaz (20-11 in MMA, 15-9 in the UFC) and Jorge Masvidal (34-13, 11-6) will square off for an unofficial yet UFC-sanctioned BMF (for “baddest motherf—er”) belt.
The 34-year-old Diaz ended a three-year layoff by besting Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision at UFC 241 in August. He then issued a respectful challenge to Masvidal, who was sitting cageside at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
Diaz doubled down on the challenge in his post-fight press conference, using the language that’d inspire UFC president Dana White to task the promotion’s design team with creating the BMF belt.
“Now we’re fighting for the baddest motherf—er in the game belt and that’s mine. So I’d like to defend it against Jorge Masvidal,” Diaz said. “So if you want to be the baddest motherf—er, that’s how we’re going to do it.”
After Saturday’s fight, the hardware will be handed out by actor and WWF legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“Looking forward to wrapping the title around the winner,” Johnson captioned an Instagram video announcing his role in the event.
“Gonna be a wild, fun and historic night. You do not wanna miss this fight.”
Masvidal last fought in July, when he set the UFC record for fastest knockout by stopping Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into their UFC 239 bout.
The 34-year-old ended his three previous victories with punches.
“I’m there to hurt every second of every minute and every minute of every round,” Masvidal said Wednesday, according to MMA Junkie. “If he survives what I got to give him, my hat’s off to him. But there’s a dog in me. And when this dog gets tired, it keeps biting.
“I’m not going to take a step back from nobody. There’s not a fight you could pull up where me getting hit or me getting tired I’m backing away or shying away from a fight. I’m a dog and once that cage is locked, I only know one thing and one speed.”
