UFC Targeting Rematch Between Jorge Masvidal And Nate Diaz For January 2021

UFC Targeting Rematch Between Jorge Masvidal And Nate Diaz For January 2021

UFC are targeting a hugely anticipated rematch with Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz at the start of next year.

TMZ were reporting that the two were set to slug it out for the BMF title on the same card as the welterweight title fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns that was initially pencilled in for UFC 251 on 'Fight Island' before Masvidal stepped in at short notice.

Double champion Amanda Nunes is also set to be in action against Megan Anderson on a stacked UFC 256 card in December.

However, the reliable Ariel Helwani says that while the rematch has been offered and UFC are working towards making it happen, nothing is signed yet and it will likely take place as the main event of the curtain-raiser in January 2021.

Nate Diaz And Jorge Masvidal To Face At UFC 244

Advert

Masvidal and Diaz battled for the BMF championship in the main event of UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden, with 'Gamebred' emerging victorious in a serious slugfest.

Masvidal had the inaugural belt placed around his waist by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson after the doctor ruled Diaz could not continue after the third round.

The two have regularly expressed an interest in running it back inside the Octagon given the disappointing manner in which the first war ended.

UFC president Dana White had previously stated he was not keen on a second bout between the two but it appears as though his stance is changing.
