The Ultimate Fighting Championship will be kicking off November in a big way with UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, November 2. The event will feature a fight between two fan favorites, Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, for the now-coveted “BMF” Belt.
Diaz and Masvidal are two fighters who are always entertaining and willing to put on a show, so the excitement has fans at the edge of their seats leading up to the pay-per-view.
And as the UFC ramps up their efforts to promote the upcoming event, they have strayed from the generic hype videos and brought some extra flair. For the latest trailer for UFC 244, the Stockton and Miami natives received a Grand Theft Auto inspired promo.
Here is the latest promo:
Fan favorites for their no nonsense, take no prisoners style in the Octagon, welterweights Diaz and Masvidal come into this highly anticipated bout on the heels of recent wins that have them showing prime form. In July, Miami’s Masvidal followed up his knockout of Darren Till with the fastest knockout in UFC history as he finished Ben Askren in five seconds. Not to be outdone, Stockton’s Diaz returned from nearly three years on the sidelines in August with a stellar victory over Anthony Pettis. After the fight, Diaz welcomed a showdown with Masvidal, and “Gamebred” eagerly accepted, setting up a November to remember in the Big Apple.
Fans immediately noticed the UFC seemingly took inspiration from graphic designer Bosslogic, who previously shared a GTA-inspired event poster.
