UFC 244: Stoppage spoils Jorge Masvidal’s ‘BMF’ title win over Nate Diaz

By  | 

The UFC 244 main event in Madison Square Garden on Saturday to crown the first — and likely only — “BMF” champion between fan-favorites Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz gave the fans everything they’d been salivating for in a dream main event for three action-packed rounds. That action, mainly produced at the hands of Masvidal, would end up being the catalyst to the tune inside the world’s “most famous arena” very quickly as the brutal damage he inflicted to the right eye of Diaz brought a stop to the historic matchup early. Heading into Round 4, the cage side doctor reentered the cage to give a second look to the battered eye of Diaz and shortly thereafter called a stop to the bout, giving Masvidal the TKO victory and the “BMF” championship.
