The anticipation is palpable as UFC veterans Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal gear up for a highly anticipated rematch in the boxing ring. Set to take place on June 1 at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, this 10-round pay-per-view bout promises to reignite the flames of their previous encounter.

The announcement came via MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, sending shockwaves through the combat sports world. Scheduled to compete at 175 pounds, this match will mark Masvidal’s second foray into professional boxing, following his 2005 victory over Joseph Benjamin. Meanwhile, Diaz, no stranger to the squared circle, suffered a decision loss to Jake Paul in August 2023.

Fans eager to witness this clash of titans can catch the action on pay-per-view through Fanmio, with early bird pricing available until April 12. Presented by Diaz’s Real Fight Inc. and Masvidal’s Gamebred Boxing Promotions, this event promises to deliver excitement and drama in equal measure.

The history between these two fighters adds an extra layer of intrigue to the showdown. Their previous encounter at UFC 244 in November 2019 saw Masvidal emerge victorious via third-round TKO, claiming the inaugural BMF belt. However, Diaz is determined to settle the score, dismissing Masvidal's victory as a mere stroke of luck.

“Nate’s a dead man walking,” Masvidal boldly proclaimed in a statement to MMA Fighting. “I can’t wait to prove that last time was no fluke. He got saved by the referee. Now we are boxing, which he says is his forte, but he’s got no shot at beating me."

Diaz, with a record of 21-13 in MMA, is no stranger to high-stakes battles, having faced and defeated some of the sport’s biggest names. Masvidal, with a record of 35-17, has carved out a legacy of his own, earning accolades such as the fastest knockout in UFC history.
