The main event of the evening is quickly becoming the most talked about event in combative sports.
When The Ultimate Fighter season 5 lightweight winner Nate Diaz returned to the octagon at UFC 241 after a long hiatus, he put on a stunning performance against former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.
After the fight Diaz who is known for his exciting fighting style called himself the “baddest MFer in the game” and called out Jorge Masvidal to a fight because he said he was the only other gangsta in the sport.
The two fighters are now fighting for the BMF title, a one off belt just for this event.
Masvidal quickly rose to fame with the fastest finish in UFC history when he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee at UFC 239.
The main event could either be a action packed stand up battle or end in a knockout, both guys are promising to deliver on fight night.
