The UFC 244 Main Card In New York Headlined By Diaz Vs. Masvidal Is Seriously Stacked

The blockbuster main-event between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal IS ON (!!) and the BMF title fight headlines a stacked UFC 244 card at Madison Square Garden.

Diaz has been cleared of any wrongdoing by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in relation with a recent failed drug test, which means the insane card remains intact.

Diaz vs. Masvidal for the BMF title tops the bill with Till taking on Kelvin Gastelum in the co-main event.

The card also features a welterweight tussle between Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque, a potential heavyweight slobberknocker in Derrick Lewis vs. Blagoy Ivanov and Kevin Lee vs. Gregor Gillespie.

UFC 244 Main Card:

BMF Title Fight: Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal

Middleweight: Kelvin Gastelum vs. Darren Till

Welterweight: Stephen Thompson vs. Vicente Luque

Heavyweight: Derrick Lewis vs. Blagoy Ivanov

Lightweight: Kevin Lee vs. Gregor Gillespie

Masvidal's enjoying his most prolific run in the UFC. He resurrected his career with knockouts over Till and Ben Askren.

Diaz, on the other hand, returned to action after a three-year layoff by outpointing ex-UFC champion Anthony Pettis in August.

He called out Masvidal in the cage following his victory and the UFC have obliged to the delight of the MMA world.

Till has moved up in weight for his next bout as he tangles with former UFC middleweight title challenger Gastelum in a mouth-watering clash.

Add the likes of 'Wonderboy', everyone's favourite heavyweight Lewis as well as Walker, and you have a night filled with sheer entertainment.

The event is less than a week out, and it's a can't-miss show.
