Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal: Fight date, ring walk time, undercard, odds & how to watch

Former UFC stars Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal will resume their rivalry later this year when they meet in a boxing fight rather than an MMA contest.

The pair first traded leather in 2019 at UFC 244 for the "BMF" belt, and it was Masvidal who came out on top with a TKO victory.

Both men have slipped down the MMA rankings due to defeats and inactivity, but now they will meet again in the squared circle.

Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal date

Diaz vs. Masvidal is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 1, 2024.

The pair will meet on the same night that UFC 302 takes place, in what is a huge night for combat sports.

Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal start time

The start time is not known for the fight, with promoters yet to confirm the full details of the card.

Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal location and venue

Diaz and Masvidal will face off at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California.

The Kira Forum is one of the best-known indoor sports venues in the USA and can hold up to 17,500 people.

How to watch and stream Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal

Diaz vs. Masvidal will be available on Famio.com as a PPV stream, who also promoted Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Logan Paul in 2021.

It is not known if any other TV channel or streaming channel will also secure the rights to broadcast the event.

Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal title at stake

As this matchup will take place in a boxing ring, neither man will defend any belts.

Diaz has only had one previous licenced boxing fight, losing to Jake Paul in August 2023. Masvidal's last boxing fight took place back in 2005, where he secured a majority decision victory over Joseph Benjamin.

Nate Diaz record

Diaz's boxing record stands at 0-1, following that defeat to Paul, but he made a name for himself in the octagon.

The 38-year-old competed at Lightweight and Welterweight during his MMA career, which he has yet to close the door on.

His record stands at 21-13, and while he has never won a world title, he was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 5, which got him a contract with the UFC. He has the third-most UFC bonus awards, with 16 in total and remains a fan favorite for his no-nonsense style and toughness.

He famously had two fights against Conor McGregor, winning the first fight by submission at UFC 196, before McGregor got revenge five months later at UFC 202.

Jorge Masvidal record

Masvidal's boxing record is marginally better than Diaz's at 1-0, but he also is known for his success inside the octagon.

He also competed at Welterweight and Lightweight during his professional MMA career and fought under the promotions of UFC, Bellator, Strikeforce, Shark Fights and World Victory Road.

He holds the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history at five seconds, but he, too, has never won a world title.

Three of his most famous wins in the UFC came over Darren Till, Ben Askren, who he stopped inside five seconds, and Diaz.

However, his UFC career ended with four straight defeats. Two of those came at the hands of Kamaru Usman, while Colby Covington and Gilbert Burns also got the better of him.

Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal odds

Diaz is considered the outsider at +200, while Masvidal is priced at -250 to beat his rival for a second time.

A stoppage victory is what both men will be looking for, but with both fighters touching 40, it is not known what ability they have left at the highest level.

Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal full card

So far, no other fights have been confirmed for the undercard, but more are expected to be announced in the final few weeks as the hype builds around the fight.
