UFC 244: Masvidal vs. Diaz is an upcoming mixed martial arts pay-per-view event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on November 2, 2019 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. The event will mark the UFC’s 500th live event.
A welterweight bout between Jorge Masvidal and former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger and The Ultimate Fighter 5 lightweight winner Nate Diaz is expected to headline the event. After his UFC 241 win against former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, Diaz proclaimed himself the "baddest motherfucker in the game" and issued a challenge to Masvidal. That led up to the booking of this fight and UFC President Dana White also confirmed that a baddest motherfucker (‘BMF’) belt will be delivered to the winner of this bout.
