UFC president Dana White told ESPN, “It is the fight fans wanted to see, Nate Diaz called out Masvidal after his win over Pettis. Everybody has been talking about it. People have been hitting me up on social media, telling me too get it done. I can now announce the fight is done.”
“I’m going to put together a belt for these two, they can fight for the ‘BMF’ belt,” White continued. “It’s one of those fights that is fun, interesting, fans are into it—you want to see for five rounds, yet it’s too big to be a fight night. So we made it a pay-per-view. I will end up stacking this card with killer fights. The main event will be those two.”
