Jorge Masvidal shared his pick for two other fights at UFC 263

Nate Diaz will make a comeback after a two-year layoff at UFC 263 against the #3 welterweight contender, Leon Edwards. Diaz is stepping inside the octagon after suffering a TKO (doctor stoppage) loss against Masvidal at UFC 244.

Diaz wasn’t an easy opponent for Masvidal to overcome. However, ‘Gamebred’ secured a TKO victory in the third round. As Masvidal has faced Diaz inside the octagon, he feels comfortable picking Diaz over Edwards as the winner.

A rematch between Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori will headline UFC 263. It will be Adesanya’s third title defense. The pair first clashed at UFC on Fox 29: Poirier vs. Gaethje on 15 April 2018. Their first bout resulted in ‘The Last Style Bender’ winning the fight via split decision.

Masvidal also shared his pick for the main event of UFC 263. ‘Gamebred’ believes that Adesanya will successfully defend his title for the fourth time.
