Jorge Masvidal Proposes Nate Diaz rematch on Twitter
The UFC’s welterweight division is in a frenzy. Not only does the division have a ton of elite fighters, but it also has some of the organization’s biggest stars. Names like Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz, and Jorge Masvidal all compete in the 170lbs division. So, it makes it extremely difficult for the matchmakers. Do they make the most competitive fights? Or, do they make the most lucrative ones? In the case of Nate Diaz vs Jorge Masvidal, the UFC may have the best of both worlds. So, it looks like both Masvidal and Diaz are ready to run it back in a rematch.
The mixed martial arts community was torn in half with Jorge and Nate first squared off. Most of the fans thought that Masvidal won fair and square. However, Diaz fans thought that the match ended prematurely. And, that Nate gets cut up in all fights so a doctor stoppage for him shouldn’t be the reason why one of his fights ended.
A lot happened after Nate Diaz loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244. Jorge walked around with the UFC’s “BMF” title. While Diaz seemed to face into the background as he usually does when contracts aren’t right. Nate said that the stoppage of the match was unfair. Then, Nick Diaz stepped in and said that he would fight Jorge to avenge his brother.

Making the Matchup
If Masvidal and Diaz were to run it back, who would fans favor in the matchup? Also, should the matchup be for the BMF title that the UFC said would never be defended? The matchup is fun and doesn’t hold up the division, so why not make it?
