UFC President Dana White Teases Jorge Masvidal’s Next Opponent After Nate Diaz’s Promo Video

Dana White has confirmed that Jorge Masvidal is likely to face fierce rival Colby Covington next instead of having a rematch with Nate Diaz.

Masvidal, 35, took on the 35-year-old Diaz in their blockbuster UFC 244 showdown at Madison Square Garden in November 2019.

The 'Stockton Slugger' has intensified speculation over a rematch with Masvidal after recently dropping a custom promo video called 'Round 4.'

Speaking at the UFC 253 post-fight press conference, White claimed that he is unsure if the UFC had even spoken to Diaz about his potential return to the octagon.

The UFC president added that it is "very possible" that Masvidal's next fight will be against Covington.
