Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) just tied a ribbon around the ceremonial weigh ins for the upcoming UFC 244: “Masvidal vs. Diaz” pay-per-view (PPV) event on ESPN+, which takes place tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 2, 2019) inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
At the conclusion of the scale-tipping festivities (full results here), welterweight headliners Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz came face-to-face to make their “Bad Mother Fucker” headliner official. The winner walks away with this shiny new belt created just for them.
In addition to the 170-pound collision between Masvidal and Diaz, former middleweight title contender, Kelvin Gastelum, will welcome ex-welterweight bruiser, Darren Till, to the 185-pound division. Fan favorites Derrick Lewis and Johnny Walker are also in action.
Take a look:
