We’re just a few more days away from one of the most-anticipated pay-per-view (PPV) events of the year, as UFC 244 is set to go down inside Madison Square Garden in New York City this Saturday night (Nov. 2, 2019).
The event — which is available through ESPN+ — is set to feature a Welterweight matchup between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, who will collide for the “BMF” title (sneak peak here) The winner will also likely earn himself a shot at the 170-pound strap.
In the co-main event, Kelvin Gastelum will welcome Darren Till to the Middleweight division, a fight that will indeed go through after “The Gorilla” finally arrived in NYC. Also, Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque, meanwhile, will collide in a pivotal showdown at 170 pounds, while Johnny Walker and Corey Anderson collide at Light Heavyweight in what could lead to a title shot against pound-for-pound great, Jon Jones.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 4 of UFC 244 Embedded, welterweight Stephen “Wonderboy Thompson” trains with his coach and father; middleweight Kelvin Gastelum trains at the facility belonging to Renzo Gracie, whose grandfather created BJJ. Fans rally behind both coasts at the open workouts, where headliners Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz entertain with words.
