Well, as you can see by watching the video below, the UFC is driving hard with the BMF theme (warning: explicit language).
The fight has come together after Diaz defeated Anthony Pettis in August by decision, and called for a bout with Masvidal. In the latter’s last fight, Masvidal set a new UFC record for fastest knockout, by putting away Ben Askren in just five seconds.
Here is the line-up to date for UFC 244, which will take place on November 2nd at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
170 lbs.: Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz
155 lbs.: Kevin Lee vs. Gregor Gillespie
265 lbs.: Blagoy Ivanov vs. Derrick Lewis
205 lbs.: Corey Anderson vs. Johnny Walker
135 lbs.: Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jennifer Maia

The UFC is headed toward the world’s most famous arena—Madison Square Garden—to put on a pay-per-view show with perhaps its two most corrosive combatants, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, atop the card.
The microphone-seeking welterweight missiles won’t have a formal title on the line when they meet at UFC 244 on Nov. 2, but that hasn’t stopped octagonal czar Dana White from dropping a reported $50K on a special “BMF” (yes… that’s exactly what it stands for) that’ll be presented to the winner by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
From there, perhaps the victor gets a shot at 170-pound champ Kamaru Usman, or maybe makes a challenge for intergalactic bad-boy supremacy against Conor McGregor—whom Diaz has fought twice and Masvidal had verbally jabbed at over the summer before landing the date with Diaz.
But wait… there’s more.
Middleweights Kelvin Gastelum and Darren Till, ranked fourth and ninth, respectively, share the bill in the co-main event, and the PPV card is rounded out by light heavies Corey Anderson and Johnny Walker, welterweights Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque and heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Blagoy Ivanov.
