Jorge Masvidal travels to Stockton searches for Nate Diaz there's someone I'm looking for UFC

Former undisputed welterweight title chaser, Jorge Masvidal has put fans on red-alert tonight across social media – alluding to a future rematch with former Octagon foe, Nate Diaz, travelling to the ex-UFC star’s native, Stockton – and asking locals if they can locate him.

Masvidal, a former two-time welterweight title challenger, called time on his professional mixed martial arts career last April, following a fourth consecutive loss in the form of a unanimous decision blemish against former title challenger, Gilbert Burns.

And as for Diaz, the Californian departed the Dana White-led promotion back in 2022, following a stunning rallying win over former interim lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson – submitting his fellow Ultimate Fighter winner with a guillotine choke in an impromptu UFC 279 main event.

However, adding fuel to the proverbial fire on a rematch with his one-time Octagon opponent, Masvidal travelled to Diaz’s native Stockton – before questioning the owner of a shop if he could help him locate the veteran Californian.
