In the aftermath of his loss to Jorge Masvidal in the main event of UFC 244, Nate Diaz has now taken to his official Instagram handle and in a recent post, revealed his future with the UFC.

UFC 244: Nate Diaz vs Jorge Masvidal

At the recently concluded UFC 244 pay-per-view, two of UFC's most well-reputed welterweight fighters in the form of Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal went head-to-head against each other in the main event of the show.

Diaz, who was on the back of a win over Anthony Pettis from UFC 241, had called out Masvidal following the latter's impressive 5-second win over Ben Askren. And, as confirmed by the UFC officials themselves, the winner of the Diaz-Masvidal fight would've been crowned the inaugural BMF Champion.

As seen at UFC 244, Masvidal dominated the fight in the opening three rounds and was the aggressor throughout the bout. However, by the end of Round 3, a cut over Diaz's right eye called for a doctor stoppage as Masvidal was announced the winner of the bout and the winner of the BMF Title.
