Nice. I was sure the UFC would fuck this up somehow.
Dana says he's going to have a BMF belt made up for this fight.
I like the fight but would rather have nate beat the fuck out of someone he doesn’t like
It could be one that you look back and say “fuck sake, hell of a fight but why put them in there as they both got fucked up and there is still no clear winner”
He may hold back during the press stuff, but they'll both be game in the cage!
Ain’t no doubt, but I would rather each of them terminate someone else
Did anyone else's weiner just get hard?
I hope that goof is paying them PPV points
I think you’re alone in that...
I like both
As do I, but this fight is gonna be a banger and I haven’t seen many people not want it.
Would rather they get on with other fights as they both have a lot of anger towards others
They’ll get there. Let them all make their money first.
Late last week, the UFC tried to book welterweight champion Kamaru Usman versus Colby Covington for the MSG headliner. After failing to come to terms with Covington on a deal, the UFC moved on and offered the title fight to Masvidal, according to sources. After coming to terms with Masvidal on Wednesday, the promotion was unable to strike a deal with Usman. That prompted the UFC to reach out to top contender Leon Edwards to see if he would be interested in fighting Masvidal for the vacant title after a threat was made to strip Usman of the belt.
The talks with Edwards didn't progress, because in the midst of all this an opportunity presented itself to book Diaz versus Masvidal as the MSG headliner, sources say. Once it was clear there was mutual interest between all parties to make that fight happen, the UFC focused its attention over the past day or so to book that fight. They were able to finalize it Friday afternoon, ESPN learned."
I really hope he does it - in 10 years that belt would prolly hold more value to fighters than any of the title/interim titles they have today
Best fighter of the night is what the sport is all about...makes sense to have a prize to show for a great Win.
Linear belts and all the other bullshit is so subject to politics and poor judging/fuckery...rarely are they actually on the best Fighter of each weight class at the given moment.
BMF belt equals winner take all, The victor takes the spoils
I was just today reading that Usman/Covington is in doubt and they might pull Masvidal into that fight vs. Usman if they can't come to terms with Colby who wants more money.
I haz a NY state of mind
I was hearing the same, that they couldn’t pull this one together... so glad they did.
