Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal: date, time, how to watch


    In 2019, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal met in the UFC Octagon for the first fight for the ceremonial “BMF” title. “Gamebred” thrashed “Stockton slugger,” scoring a TKO via doctor’s stoppage after the 3rd round at UFC 244.

    In a few hours from now, former UFC stars meet again, this time in a 10-round light heavyweight boxing bout at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

    The event was initially scheduled for June 1, 2024, but the promoters, Diaz and Masvidal, were smart enough to reschedule the fight because UFC 302: “Makhachev vs. Poirier” went down the same night. Going head-to-head with a major UFC PPV is a lose-lose for most, so good on them for rescheduling the event.

    The undercard features a mixed bag of creative matchmaking and veterans. Two-time world champion Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs is back in an intriguing 10-round super middleweight co-main event fight against Shane Mosley Jr. Jacobs has competed only twice in the last four years, a win over Gabriel Rosado by split decision in 202 and a loss by split decision to John Ryder in 2022

    Elsewhere on the card, MMA legend Anthony “Showtime” Pettis continues his crossover into boxing when he takes on another former MMA fighter turned-boxer, Chris Avila. Pettis scored a majority decision win over 54-year-old Roy Jones Jr. last year to start his boxing career.

    Since winning over Diaz, Masvidal has lost four straight fights inside the Octagon and ultimately retired after getting schooled by Gilbert Burns, ending his UFC career with a 12-0 mark.

    Diaz is never known in MMA for sheer power, which could be an advantage to Masvidal as the more powerful puncher. He also came to MMA through a streetfighting background and is comfortable trading hands.
