Nate Diaz is one of the biggest stars in MMA currently. His intense rivalry with Conor McGregor skyrocketed both of their stock in the world of sports while also alleviating the sport of MMA itself. He is set to return to the Octagon this Saturday at UFC 263 to fight promising welterweight Leon Edwards.

Masvidal had the edge with his standup game and was winning the fight in the first three rounds. However, it all went wrong from there as a doctor stepped in to call off the fight. Masvidal was beginning to slow down, and Diaz was looking good, albeit with one cut above his eye.
