UFC 244 Masvidal vs Diaz Preview

UFC 244 Masvidal vs Diaz, is live Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York on Saturday, Nov. 2nd, 2019. The event starts at 10 pm ET and you can purchase on ESPN+. The Prelims start at 8 pm ET, on ESPN 2.

The main event features Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. Gamebred takes on the Stockton Slugger. This is a battle for the “BMF” title of the UFC. I will let you figure the acronym out. What really is at stake for the winner is a shot at the Welterweight Championship, which is held by Kamaru Usman. You’re going to see a lot of everything in this fight. Expect it to be a physical and bloody fight. Masvidal is on a two-fight win streak and I don’t expect that to stop in the Garden.

In the co-main event in a middleweight battle, Kelvin Gastelum takes on Darren Till. The Gorilla Till has the striking advantage while Gastelum has the edge in the submission game. Till has lost his last two fights after starting his career with 17 straight wins and a draw. Gastelum is coming off a five-round decision loss to Israel Adesanya. Gastelum will get the win here and his momentum back.
