Nick Diaz to Face Jorge Masvidal at UFC 235 in All-Hood Battle

Nick Diaz is so street that he sometimes poops asphalt. Jorge Masvidal is so street, his middle name is “Main”.

Okay, these were awful jokes, but they’re a clear indication of my excitement over the match-up between Diaz and Masvidal at UFC 235. Bros, the older, poorer Diaz sibling is finally coming back!

Neither dude is prone to slacking or hugging in the cage. In fact, these dudes are so keen on throwing down “street” style that referee Herb Dean has confiscated about a dozen switchblades from them prior to their fights. This bout will be insane!

Here’s ESPN with the scoop:

UFC welterweight Nick Diaz will return to competition on March 2 in Las Vegas, according to UFC president Dana White.

Diaz (26-9) has agreed to face Jorge Masvidal (32-13) in a welterweight contest at UFC 235 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Additional sources told ESPN contracts for the bout are not yet signed, but it is close to being finalized.

A former Strikeforce champion, Diaz has not fought since he suffered a decision loss to Anderson Silva in January 2015. The result of that bout was later changed to a no-contest, after both Silva and Diaz failed their respective drug tests.

Face Off! Magny Stares Down ‘Gente Boa’ In Argentina

An intriguing welterweight showdown between top contenders Neil Magny and Santiago Ponzinibbio is set to headline the upcoming UFC Fight Night 140 mixed martial arts (MMA) event this Sat. night (Nov. 17, 2018) inside Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It’s a no-brainer to have the hometown hero, Ponzinibbio, headline the FOX Sports 1 event in what will mark the promotion’s first trip to Argentina. “Gente Boa” is currently riding a six-fight win streak and was last seen beating the brakes off Mike Perry in Dec. of 2017.

As for Magny, he currently owns a two-fight win streak and was scheduled to face off against Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 137 back in September, but was ultimately yanked from that contest in favor of pairing him against Ponzinibbio.

Watch them come face-to-face at Thursday’s media day in the embedded video above.

MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Fight Night 140 fight card on fight night (click here), starting with the Fight Pass “Prelims” undercard bout at 7 p.m. ET, followed by the FOX Sports 1 “Prelims” undercard bouts at 8 p.m. ET, before the main card start time at 10 p.m. ET, also on FOX Sports 1.

Face Off! ‘DC’ Locks Eyes With The ‘Beast’

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier, came face-to-face with top heavyweight contender, Derrick Lewis, at the conclusion of the UFC 230 media day, held this afternoon (Thurs., Nov. 1, 2018) in New York City to promote this Saturday night’s title fight inside Madison Square Garden.

Cormier and Lewis agreed to get rowdy on super short notice after the promotion exhausted its list of available champions, leaving the “Big Apple” fight card without a marquee headliner. Dana White and Co. tried to sneak one by us, but mixed martial arts (MMA) fans weren’t having it.

The winner is expected to face Brock Lesnar for the 265-pound title in early 2019, assuming the pro wrestling import can keep the pesky folks at United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) off his “jacked” back between now and then.

In the UFC 230 co-main event, former middleweight champion, Chris Weidman, will be testing his submission defense against fellow top contender Ronaldo Souza, also a late-notice match up after Luke Rockhold was forced to withdraw.

Won’t be long now!

MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 230 fight card on fight night (click here), starting with the Fight Pass “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, then the remaining undercard balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, before the PPV main card at 10 p.m. ET.
