Next month, the UFC will kick off November with, arguably, the biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) event of the year. UFC 244 will go down live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Madison Square Garden on November 2.

In the main event, fan-favorite no-nonsense welterweights Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz will collide. The winner will be awarded the one-off Baddest Mother F*cker Championship, with none other than Hollywood mega-star and WWE legend The Rock wrapping the belt around the winner’s waist himself.

Ahead of the matchup, Diaz has released an epic hype promo for the PPV event on his official YouTube channel, which has received tremendous reviews from the MMA community. Check it out here:

Diaz ended a three-year layoff from Octagon action earlier this year when he fought Anthony Pettis at UFC 242. Diaz won the contest via unanimous decision, calling out Masvidal after his victory. Masvidal is on a two-fight knockout streak over the likes of Darren Till and Ben Askren. A potential victory would be massive for either man, and could very well earn the winner a welterweight title opportunity next. One thing is for certain, these two will put on a fight to remember come fight night in New York.

Former UFC welterweight title challenger Darren Till is preparing to make his debut at 185 pounds. Till will take on former interim 185-pound title challenger Kelvin Gastelum at the upcoming UFC 244 pay-per-view (PPV) from Madison Square Garden in New York City.

As Till prepares for the matchup against Gastelum, he has been sharing some photos of his training on Instagram. The man known as “The Gorilla” is looking massive ahead of the middleweight contest, as seen in his latest post online.

Till has had a rough couple of bouts at welterweight, losing his last two outings via stoppage to Tyron Woodley and Jorge Masvidal. Woodley submitted Till to hand the Englishman the first loss of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career back in September of 2018 in their welterweight title bout.

In his return in front of his native London crowd this past March, Masvidal finished Till with a vicious knockout in the second round. Now, he’ll take on Gastelum at 185 pounds, who had a two-fight win streak snapped when he was bested by Israel Adesanya at UFC 236 in April. It will be interesting to see how things play out between the pair come fight night in New York.

Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz will fight at UFC 244 for the Baddest Mother F*cker Championship. The two welterweights will collide in the main event of the Madison Square Garden pay-per-view (PPV).

UFC president Dana White has also suggested it’s possible the winner is next in line for the 170-pound title. Currently, Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington will headline UFC 245 in December for the welterweight crown, so it’s likely the winners of the two PPVs will be meeting in 2020.

Another man trying to climb his way back into the title hunt at welterweight is Ben Askren. “Funky” has a meeting with Demian Maia in Singapore coming up on October 26. Speaking to Submission Radio recently, Askren noted he has a hard time giving Diaz a title shot if victorious in November, simply because of his recent activity, or lack thereof.

“Oh, the BMF, that’s a one-off. They’re gonna do it one time and it’s whatever, it’s gone. You know, handed it one time, it’s kind of cool, now done and gone with. So, I think if Jorge wins, then he gets a title shot, and I would venture to guess that’s who’s gonna win.

“Although, I can’t be entirely certain, that’s where I would probably lean. And if Nate wins, I just have a hard time (giving him a title shot). Could you give him a title shot? Sure, right? But then again, he’s only beaten Anthony and Jorge, and that’s really it in the last, what, he took three years off or something? So that makes him challenging for the title fight. So, I think he could, but you probably would look to put him in a different fight of some kind. And then if Jorge wins, then I believe Jorge goes for a title.”

If Masvidal is victorious on the night, however, there’s no disputing he deserves a shot at the gold. He is currently on a two-fight win streak in which he has finished each of his opponents in devastating fashion. He knocked out Darren Till in the second round of their London meeting earlier this year. “Gamebred” followed that up with the fastest knockout in UFC history, finishing Askren in five seconds at UFC 239.

What do you think about Askren questioning giving Diaz a title shot with a win at UFC 244?
