With rumours continuing to circle ahead of his anticipated return, the Irishman has now made comments on his social media about the upcoming BMF title fight. This is only likely to antagonise fighters such as Dustin Poirier, who responded with how long it has been since McGregor was victorious inside the octagon. McGregor has also now responded, so could this yet lead to a rematch between the pair as he had stopped Poirier previously.

The BMF title belt has now been confirmed and will be given to the winner of Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal in their upcoming fight at UFC 244. This is set to crown the ‘baddest motherfucker in the game’, after Diaz’s recent call out of Masvidal following his comeback victory. The fight will be headlining the stacked card, taking place on November 2nd inside Madison Square Garden in New York city.

Nate Diaz enters the fight having won three of his last four fights, extending his record to 20 wins and 11 losses. This includes his shock UFC 196 victory over Conor McGregor when stepping in on short notice. He was then beaten by McGregor in the rematch at UFC 202, in what was a very close decision. Following a three year absence he returned to face the dangerous Anthony Pettis at UFC 241. This saw him produce an impressive performance to win via a unanimous decision and he will now be hopeful of picking up another headline victory in New York. Punters have been using both UFC and roulette tips to win recently in order to boost their balances ahead of this fight.

Jorge Masvidal brings in a record of 34 wins and 13 losses. This includes him picking up the title for the fastest knockout in history, as he ended Ben Askren’s unbeaten record. This was through a flying knee after just five seconds at UFC 239. Prior to this, he also stopped Darren Till at UFC Fight Night 147, through a series of punches that knocked him out cold. He will now enter the fight as the favourite following these hugely impressive recent victories.

Other key fights on the card are listed below with the main one being the clash between Kelvin Gastelum and Darren Till. This will be taking place in the Middleweight division and will be the debut at the weight for Till, as he looks to return with a victory following two consecutive stoppage loses.
