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 headlines a stacked UFC 244 in New York, which also includes Darren Till's middleweight debut and light-heavyweight phenom Johnny Walker.
The famed Octagon sets up shop at the iconic Madison Square Garden on November 2 for an insane card.
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 Brazilian contender Walker who faces Corey Anderson, not to mention a welterweight tussle between Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque.
Who is the BMF!?

Diaz vs. Masvidal was booked last week with Dana White announcing the super-fight during UFC 242 fight week.
Masvidal's on a tear. He's recorded back-to-back wins over Till and Ben Askren, who was knocked out in just five seconds at UFC 239.
Diaz, on the other hand, returned to action after a three-year layoff by outpointing ex-UFC champion Anthony Pettis last month.
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 two months out, and it's already shaping up to be a can't-miss show.
