UFC 244 is gearing up to invade Madison Square Garden this Saturday night (Nov. 2, 2019) in New York City as Nate Diaz collides with Jorge Masvidal to crown “the baddest motherfucker” in mixed martial arts (MMA).
And wouldn’t you know it, the fight is so big that even President Donald Trump is planning to attend. And yes, “The Rock” will present the “BMF” title to the victor inside the Octagon.
In the co-main event, Kelvin Gastelum will welcome Darren Till to the Middleweight division, while Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque collide in a pivotal showdown at 170 pounds. If that weren’t enough, Johnny Walker and Corey Anderson will collide at Light Heavyweight, possibly for the right to face division king, Jon Jones.
Before fight night rolls around, get some behind-the-scenes footage of just what each combatant goes through on fight week leading up to the big day. From conducting non-stop interviews, trying to cut weight and shopping for suits, a fighter’s work is truly never done.
