Diaz vs Masvidal Prediction: They Already Fought in the UFC

Nate Diaz Preview

Nate Diaz is a legend of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is a fan favorite for his antics, aggressive fighting style, endurance, and the fact that he doesn't give a F. He gained worldwide recognition after defeating Conor McGregor in 2016.

The former mixed martial artist competed in the UFC lightweight and welterweight divisions for 15 years. While he never won a title, he did win the Ultimate Fighter 5 in 2007. After he completed his final contract with the promotion, Diaz decided to move to boxing, where he made his debut in August 2023 against Jake Paul.

Nate is also famous for his unpredictable behavior in the ring, which catches his opponents off guard and makes them feel bewildered, which ruins their entire game plan. This style definitely transferred to boxing and we expect to see his fun side against Masvidal. But before we give our Diaz vs Masvidal prediction, let's take a closer look at Gamebred's career.

Jorge Masvidal Preview

Jorge Masvidal is a very similar character. He began his career in 2003 (at the age of 18) and has since become one of the most prominent and popular fighters in the world. He was part of the UFC from 2013 to 2023.

Masvidal is also known for his aggressive fighting style and unpredictable moves. He is behind the fastest and one of the most brutal knockouts in UFC history, which you can see from the video above. He also defeated Nate Diaz in 2019 when the two contested for the BMF belt.

In addition to his athletic achievements, Jorge Masvidal is also known for his daring character and often attracts media attention with his trash talk before fights.

Our Nate Diaz vs Jorge Masvidal Prediction: Different Sport, Same Outcome

Finally, we can talk about our Diaz vs Masvidal prediction.

Nate's main strength is his durability. It will be needed in the early rounds when Masvidal is especially aggressive. He should wait out the first rounds as calmly as possible, get away from the attack line, and close in a full block more often. Jorge has never been known for his defense and he will start making mistakes that Nate could exploit.

However, it is worth admitting that Nate's chances are not so great. According to analysts, he is a significant underdog in the upcoming fight. The punching power is on Masvidal's side, and he is more technical too. Jorge is definitely a better boxer. Nate is incredible but he is a street fighter.

Since both of them have not been active in years, we definitely doubt that Jorge will have the same advantage he had during their first fight five years ago. We suspect that the two UFC legends will last the full fight. It will be much for either of them to get a knockout with boxing gloves.

While we like Gamebred's chances for our Diaz vs Masvidal prediction, we believe that the best option is to bet on the fight to go the distance.
