UFC 244 is finally in the books now and it has most definitely made a compelling argument to be the greatest UFC fight card of all time (alongside UFC 205, UFC 217 and UFC 189). The main event for the BMF belt between welterweights Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal also delivered just as expected.
The fight had fans on the edge of their seats and biting their nails from the opening second, with Diaz and Masvidal going to an absolute war. However, it did not last wrong and was stopped before the championship rounds by the ringside doctor due to a cut under Diaz’s right eye.
It should be noted that according to many including Joe Rogan as well, fights have gone on for way worse cuts and the Doctor’s stoppage was definitely a bad call.
This led to plenty of reactions from fans and fighters alike. Below is a compilation of some of the best reactions:

The former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington, who is Masvidal’s former close friend turned rival probably had the most interesting take on the BMF fight:
