One of the UFC’s biggest stars Nate Diaz had made his long-awaited return recently at UFC 241, after defeating the former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. He had then called out fan favourite UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal. While fans were skeptical that the fight will ever be made, the UFC President Dana White had recently confirmed on his Instagram that the duo will be headlining UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden for the Baddest Motherf**ker title. Now the UFC have officially announced the day and date for the very first press conference for UFC 244 and this amazing fight.
It should be noted that UFC 244 was previously supposed to be headlined by a grudge title fight between the UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and the former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington. However, the negotiations for the fight recently fell through.
The UFC recently tweeted a poster for the fight along with revealing in the caption that an official press conference has been scheduled for next Thursday in New York and that it is also free and open even for the public.
Below is the tweet by the UFC:
