VIDEO: UFC 244 press conference with Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal


As part of the build to November's UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden, Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal, and Dana White will take part in a press conference Thursday at 7 PM Eastern from The Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York City.

You can stream the event below:

Diaz and Masvidal will fight in the main event of the MSG show, the first scheduled non-title PPV headliner since Conor McGregor fought Diaz at UFC 202 in August 2016.

The two will fight over the "BMF" belt, a title Dana White is going to have created just for this fight. In a Twitter chat Thursday, White said the belt will be unveiled the week of the show. 

Diaz returned from a three-year absence to pick up a convincing unanimous decision win over Anthony Pettis at August's UFC 241 while Masvidal set a UFC record for the fastest knockout at July's UFC 239. Diaz called out Masvidal after his victory, helping set things in motion for UFC 244, the 500th event in company history.
