On Saturday, Nov. 2, the UFC will host UFC 244: Masvidal vs. Diaz from Madison Square Garden in New York.

In the night’s main event, the promotion will crown the “Baddest Motherfucker” (BMF) in the game as Jorge Masvidal clashes with former lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz in a welterweight match-up. Masvidal rides the momentum of his five-second knockout victory over Ben Askren in his more recent outing. Diaz returned from a lengthy layoff to top former champion Anthony Pettis is his last bout.

The event kicks off with three preliminary-card bouts streaming on ESPN+ at 6:15 p.m. ET. The action then moves to ESPN 2 for the remainder of the prelims at 8 p.m. ET. The five-fight main card airs live on ESPN+ pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
