The BMF Title decided in the worst way possible.
The UFC 244 main event between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal was everything advertised for three rounds. And then it was over in the most disappointing way possible. Masvidal opened up a nasty cut near the eye of Diaz in the first round, and despite fighting through the cut for two more rounds, the NYSAC stopped the fight after three rounds. The record books will show a TKO victory for Masvidal, but as you would expect, fellow fighters weren't happy with how we got there.
I really wanted to see those last 2 rounds bc Diaz always turns it up in those championship rounds with his cardio #ufc244 run it back . But Masvidal looked amazing— Felice Herrig (@feliceherrig) November 3, 2019
That doctor just set us up for the rematch #ufc244— Leslie Smith (@LeslieSmith_GF) November 3, 2019
Nate better get paid double for the next one, clearly his belt was a great fucking idea.
If this was WWE , you’d have a long reigning champ that you don’t want to lose clean. So you either make a triple threat match or have someone run in and cost him the title. I’m a dork, but great job by both guys. Jorge looked like a killer, and Nate is a Dog(west side) #bmf— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) November 3, 2019
Damn... not the way that main event should’ve ended! Doc’s let way worse continue. What did you guys think about the cut stoppage?? #UFC244— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) November 3, 2019
