Five years removed from their first meeting under the UFC banner, Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz stepped inside the squared circle to run it back on Saturday night, headlining a loaded boxing card in Anaheim, California.

From the get-go, Diaz put the pressure on Masvidal early and never once let up throughout their entertaining 10-round clash. However, it was ‘Gamebred’ who landed the more impactful shots, counterstriking and punishing Diaz with his jab from the southpaw stance.

After going the full 30 minutes, it was Masvidal who held a significant advantage in total punches landed. Still, it was Diaz’s volume and constant pressure that appeared to be the deciding factor for two of the three judges.
