In the aftermath of his historic win over Nate Diaz at UFC 244 for the inaugural BMF Championship, Jorge Masvidal now finds himself on the verge of a potential dream fight against Nate's older brother Nick Diaz, who might possibly step out of retirement in order to go head-to-head against 'Gamebred'.
Masvidal excited about a potential fight against Nick Diaz

“If he’s got that fire lit under him, I know we’re going to have a fight. I know Nick’s a dog. He’s going to take whatever I can give, and I’m going to give him everything that I got to hit the off button, to turn him off, as well, so I’m excited for the fight."
Additionally, Masvidal said that he does know for a fact that Nick wants to hurt the former and will be looking forward to avenging his brother's loss. Therefore, a fight against the older Diaz brother is what pumps up Jorge Masvidal.
“I know he wants to hurt me. He has to avenge his little brother, so it’s a fight that pumps me up.”Published 30 Nov 2019, 04:59 IST
