    Masvidal is all kinds of wrong for Nate.

    Tougher, better boxer, great cardio, more dog in him, has fought better opposition as of late (and looked better doing so), bigger...

    Gonna be a great build-up and fight, though.

    And despite having more fights, has way less mileage/damage on him. Masvidal's underrated defense, feet, IQ & speed is gonna be glaring here.

    Might become the only other man besides Josh Thompson to claim a TKO stoppage over Nate.

    After seeing the cards for the make up of the other PPVs,I predict that this Diaz v Masvidal card will get more view then the rest of the years PPVs.

    UFC243 has a weak undercard but arguably the best fight of the rest of the year with Whitaker v Adesanya,which will attract a near record live crowd in Australia and UFC245 card in december is headlined by low rating Nunes against Derandamie and the just announced Holloway v Volkanovski that should have been the main undercard in Australia if UFC had organised things better.

    BMF belt was revealed yesterday.
    Stellar work by Dana White, changing the letters from UFC to BMF, very imaginative.

    **** the belt and lets have this fight.
    Can't wait!

    It's a fun matchup but let's be completely honest here. Both these fighters lose plenty of fights. Made up belts just makes the ufc look more of a circus then a real sport.

    BMF ? Really ? Nice guy Stephen Thompson easily beats both of them on the same night.
    I guess you have to pander to the dumb casuals. I prefer to watch sports as competitions. the best against the best NOT the best "street" personas against each other.

    So many of the ATG's of MMA have as many if not more losses as Nate and Masvidal have and the knowledgeable and hardcore fans aren't worried about losses especially because of the quality of opposition they fight all the time and how they fight.
    This event will be among the most viewed events of all time with so many big names attending and wanting to take part including the president,as they know they are guaranteed a quality fight which they know they won't get with some of the so called top guys like Khabib and Usman who are boring and have built there records up fighting scrubs

    Can't wait for the 2 main events tonight like so many ,it was a mistake from golden boy picking this date but fortunately they came to there senses and moved Alvarez v Kovalev back to start after UFC244 is finished so fans can watch both.
    The great Roberto Duran apparently will be walking out with Masvidal to the cage in tonights fight
