November 3, 2019

The UFC 244: Masvidal vs. Diaz main event on Saturday ended via doctor stoppage prior to the start of the fourth round. The highly hyped BMF title fight was exciting while it lasted, but didn’t give the fans inside Madison Square Garden in New York City closure.

Jorge Masvidal defeated Nate Diaz, but wasn’t happy with the decision to stop the fight due to a cut below Diaz’ right eye. Diaz wanted to continue and the spectators booed. UFC fighters watching from home weren’t happy with the stoppage either and they voiced the opinions on social media following the event.
