  1. Diaz said Kick him in the face like a ninja but it shows a Edson Barboza highlight lmao no good ninja clip of his own they could use?

  2. damn nates scared. he had to bring his big brother. and roberto duran is really upping the ante, masvidal is indeed a favorite in this fight.

  3. Something wrong between rock & nate for sure….dana also looks upset…something had happened backstage for sure..
    Did'nt made eye contact
    Did'nt shake hands

  4. I dont see any animocity between these two dudes. They have a great amount of respect for eachother and can identificy with one another i’m sure. They look so alike in character.

  5. Cant wait
    I honestly pick Diaz by decisiom or RNC round 4 or 5 !
    I think the key will be tje ability of Diaz to take pumishment and keep going
    I think Masvidal might cause big damage to Diaz but Diaz will take his best shots and tirr him out

  6. DIAZ BROTHERS ARE BORN GANGSTAZ, SO EVERY OTHER FIGHTER IS A BAD TRY TO BE A GANGSTA
    WEST SIDE OUTLAW BAD BOY KILLERS. GO NATE! W.W.W.

  7. when they can show 7even faces of death that's when they will be considered worthy to face pure evil for the evilest mother fucker in the game EMF belt, take a guess who the champ is,

  8. I like how Masvidal, as always, comes forward with hands behind his back and Nate raises his guard, just like Leon Edwards, without getting a 3pcs and soda 🙃

  9. I don't want Kelvin to loose coz I feel he should be holding the belt already but I'm from UK and dont want Daren to loose I'm torn I just hope Darren's weight helps him takes shots coz Jorge hits nowhere near as hard as Kelvin just hope it's a good scrap and the main I have no clue should be a good 1

  10. In all respect to Dwayne Johson but Joey coco Diaz should of been the one to wrap the belt around the winner with a 1000 mg deathstar in his mouth and a fat blunt in the chamber.

  11. All these NYC fans are fairweather at most! These dorks probably had to google the name Mark Kerr just to understand what the Rock was talking about. These arent real mma fans

  12. Roll on UFC 244 some badass match ups + the BMF title where Roberto Duran will be in support of Masvidal like a dream scenario for any fighter. Let’s fkin gooooooo 🥊🥋

  13. Masvidal looking at the belt on the rocks shoulder is scary…the look on his fucking face is that of a really really hungry tiger…..hes going to try and knock diaz out…and he wants it like a lion wants steak
