Who wins between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz?
Frank Hyden MMATorch Columnist
I’ll go with Diaz by decision. I have more faith in Diaz than I do Masvidal. I don’t think Masvidal can finish Diaz but I do think Diaz can finish Masvidal. Not by TKO, I don’t think either guy will be stopped that way (though Masvidal is more likely to be finished that way than Diaz) but I could definitely see Diaz submitting Masvidal. I think Diaz keeps the fight standing and thus grinds out a tough decision.

I think Masvidal is going to land much harder shot than Diaz will be able to take, I don’t think for a second that Nate will take this fight to the ground but if he does it’ll be over in a heartbeat. Nate Diaz has an extraordinary chin but the body can only take so much. Masvidal hits hard and a war with him on your feet is only gonna end one way. Masvidal will move on with a win to face Leon Edwards.

The more I have been thinking about this, the more I am convinced that this fight will go long, and Nate Diaz will get the decision. By no means am I predicting that the fight will be boring, but I do think that it goes the distance. As exciting as it may sound, I doubt Masvidal will be able to land a fantastical KO early in the fight. This is where I see the legendary cardio of Nate making the difference.
