Jorge Masivdal vs Nate Diaz To Headline UFC 244
Moments ago, ESPN’s Ariel Helwani took to social media to post several tweets, stating that Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz will headline UFC 244, at Madison Square Garden, New York on November 2nd.
As Helwani points out, it’s been an eventful few days in the UFC welterweight division. First talks broke down between the champion Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. Then the UFC tried to make Usman vs Jorge Masvidal. Then when this fight fell through because of Usman, the UFC switched their attention to Masvidal vs Leon Edwards for the 170lbs title. But any chance of that fight happening went out the window, when talks began again between Masvidal and Nate.
The fight between Nate and Masvidal will be a five round non-title fight. And as Helwani points out, the booking of this fight, gives Usman and Covington a chance to make the title fight we need to see.
