Nate Daiz vs. Jorge Masvidal: What to Know & How to Watch

Don’t miss the long-awaited rematch between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal as the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) stars face off in an epic 10-round boxing match on Saturday, July 6 on PPV with DIRECTV. 

The fight will take place in the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, after originally being scheduled for June 1, 2024, at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California. The date was changed to avoid competing with UFC 302: Makhachev vs. Poirier which was being held on the same night. 

The two last faced off in 2019 in the UFC 244 which Masvidal won by a doctor’s stoppage due to a bloody gash over Diaz’s eye. Diaz is looking for redemption and Masvidal is looking for another win in this heated rivalry. 

While the two fighters have impressive UFC records, they are both new to the world of boxing.

Diaz is currently a free agent but spent over 15 years fighting in the UFC and holds a 22-13-0 record. The Stockton native made his professional boxing debut in August 2023 in a bout against Jake Paul. Diaz lost the 10-round fight and is looking for his first boxing victory in the July 6 match. 

Masvidal was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and has been a professional UFC fighter for over 20 years. He has a 35-17-0 record in the UFC along with the record for the fastest KO in UFC history at 5 seconds. He last competed in a boxing match in 2005 when he won against Joseph Benjamin.
