Many years ago, Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz fought one another over the inaugural BMF championship. It was seen as something of a gimmick, but their main event showdown at UFC 244 in New York City pulled in a lot of fans. Due to the bout ending via doctor stoppage, many have always wanted to see a rematch. However, now that they’ve both left the UFC, it didn’t seem likely.

Fast forward to the present day and rumors have been circulating that the two could square off in a boxing match. Yes, you heard it, boxing, not mixed martial arts.

As speculation continues, Ariel Helwani has decided to shed some light on the issue via social media.

“Nathan Diaz x Jorge Masvidal in a boxing match is in fact in the works for later this year, sources say. First repoted by @happypunch. I ask Diaz’s rep Zach Rosenfield this evening about it, and he said “I can’t confirm that.”

“As I said multiple times recently, neither man was slated or in talks for 300. This was always the targeted bout.”

A lot of fans will probably be upset or annoyed to hear that neither man was considered for a slot on the UFC 300 card. After all, they both hold big name value, and they could bring a lot of eyes to the event.

Now, we’ll have to wait and see what else the promotion has up their sleeve.
