The history of Nate diaz x Jorge masvidal began in 2019, more precisely in UFC 244, when the 'Jesus of the Streets' knocked out your opponent, winning the symbolic BMF (Badass Motherf**ker – The toughest) belt. The rematch, now in boxing, brings a special flavor of redemption for the 'bad boy', as the Gamebred seeks to confirm its hegemony.

Both fighters recently left the UFC. Diaz had his contract terminated and became a free agent, while Masvidal retired and took charge of 'Gamebred FC', a bare-knuckle boxing event. The organization, however, granted special authorization for the North American to participate in the fight, given the magnitude of the event.

The tension between the rivals had already been palpable since their last meeting, in 2019. The pre-fight press conference, which took place in June, only served to inflame tempers even further. It all started when Nate refused to participate in the traditional face-off with Jorge, which generated a heated discussion between the fighters and their teams. The situation quickly degenerated into an all-out brawl, with punches and slaps flying.

With adrenaline running high, the two fighters take to the ring this Saturday with different goals. For Nate diaz, the fight represents the chance to erase the 2019 defeat and establish himself as the king of the rivalry. Masvidal is looking for redemption after his early retirement from the UFC and to gain morale in his professional boxing debut.
