Diaz vs Masvidal Live: Diaz vs Masvidal Live Stream, Any UFC event at Madison Square Garden is going to be stacked with talent, and this Saturday’s card for UFC 244 is no different. But it’s also loaded with data, which means we have more visibility into the matchups than usual. Ultimate Fighting Championship’s UFC next entry to the pay-per-view PPV market will be a big one, as UFC 244 is locked and loaded for Nov. 2, 2019.
Plus, don’t underestimate the potential for excitement between Shane Burgos and Makwan Amirkhani, a contest some have earmarked this stacked card as the favorite for FOTN. Edmen Shahbazyan has also excited many with his potential. He receives a stiff test in veteran Brad Tavares. And the wily Andrei Arlovski will get his chin tested by heavy-hitting Jairzinho Rozenstruik to open the prelims. Yeah… these prelims rock!
The prelims begin on ESPN2 at 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT on Saturday.Though Anderson is considered the veteran in this contest, they started their careers within a year of one another and Walker has more career contests. It is true that Anderson has more UFC experience by a mile in addition to being three years older, but for those who are trying to make this a narrative where it’s the young lion trying to overtake the old vet, just stop.
Anderson has a real bone to pick with the UFC. Feeling he’s already done enough to warrant a crack at Jones with a pair of wins over top five light heavyweights within his current win streak, he accepted this fight with Walker in hopes of proving there is more substance to his grinding wrestling than there is to the pyrotechnics behind Walker’s quick finishes. Anderson knows his style doesn’t attract a lot of eyeballs, but securing 19 takedowns over the course of two contests to begin this streak is undeniably impressive.
He may not have been able to take down Ilir Latifi, but he did outbox the muscular Swede and avoided Latifi’s own takedowns. Anderson isn’t a power puncher on the feet, but he’s technically sound enough that he can outpoint a good chunk of the division.
Your hosts ‘Shak’ Shakiel Mahjouri & former UFC fighter, Kajan Johnson are here each Wednesday as “MMA’s most colorful and entertaining personalities”. They will present you a half hour or so of MMA content, varying from fighter interviews to discussions on current MMA Topics.
Ranked UFC fighter Shane Burgos breaks down his upcoming fight with Makwan Amirkhani at UFC 244, reacts to Kron Gracie’s remarks after UFC Tampa, breaks down his favorite tattoos and previews Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz.Diaz made his triumphant return after an extended layoff to defeat Anthony Pettis at UFC 241 a few months back (highlights), earning him his first victory since a win over Conor McGregor in 2016. Masvidal, meanwhile, is looking for his third straight win after scoring back-to-back knockout victories over Darren Till and Ben Askren (see it).
A convincing win over Diaz could very well set him up to face the winner of Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman, who are set to throw hands at UFC 245 on Dec. 14.Though there is nothing wrong with the other contests on the prelims on UFC 244, there is one contest that stands head and shoulders above the rest.
It’s plausible the winner of Corey Anderson and Johnny Walker will determine the next challenger to Jon Jones title. There’s no doubt the UFC would prefer the flashy Walker to come out ahead as Anderson’s three fight win streak hasn’t done much to excite viewers, with all those victories coming via decision. On the flip side, Walker has yet to go beyond two minutes in his undefeated three-fight UFC run.
