UFC 244 is going to be a movie!
If you’re a MMA fan then you probably don’t need much convincing to tune into UFC 244. Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz is a beast of a fight and both men have the kind of fighting styles that could produce a battle for the ages.
But what about those who don’t normally tune into MMA events? While many may not be enticed by MMA right off the bat, let’s consider some interesting points that pretty much explain themselves.
REASON 1: Kelvin Gastelum vs Darren Till
A talented wrestler and striker who has reached the summit of the Middleweight division but has fallen just shy of glory. A Muay Thai kickboxer who took the world by storm, but has since tasted devastating defeat and is looking to reinvent himself in a new weight class.
Kelvin Gastelum vs Darren Till is the kind of match that could easily play out like a film. Both these young fighters are looking to get back on track after suffering defeats in their last bouts.
One will go on to continue their surge towards a title shot in the Middleweight division. The other will have to reevaluate their entire future moving forward. It’s harsh realities like these that makes every fight worth the watch.
Below are the strategies both Kelvin Gastelum and Darren Till will have to use in order to get a victory come Saturday.
REASON 2: Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz
Two absolute gangsters who are looking to prove who’s the baddest in the UFC, Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz are two sides of the same coin. Where Jorge Masvidal represents Miami and the East Coast, Nate Diaz is a self proclaimed West Coast gangster and is looking to prove that he’s the biggest dog in the UFC today.
Why watch? It seems pretty obvious that this is going to be an all action fight with Jorge Masvidal looking to showcase his rough and tough, technical striking style while Nate Diaz is looking to assert his dominance with his in your face, raw, aggressive, high volume boxing.
You just can’t make this up. It sends like the end fight in a gangster movie about two street fighting warriors seeking glory by virtue of their fists. Take a listen below to understand the strategies that Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz will most likely use to earn victory!
