Fantasy MMA contests are now available for #UFC244, and as always BSMMA is offering both paid entry contests with guaranteed prize pools as well as free entry contests where you can compete for points & prizes!

 The “BMF” title is up for grabs. Who is the baddest man in the world? We’re about to find out when Jorge Masvidal (34-13) and Nate Diaz (20-11) in a fight that is sure to bring fireworks in the cage and in the lead up. And if that’s not enough to get you to tune in, how about the most stacked card top to bottom in recent memory? The pay-per-view card features Darren Till (17-2-1) making his much anticipated move up to middleweight to fight former title challenger (16-4). Plus action including Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Gregor Gillespie and Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis.

 #UFC244 will air on ESPN+, ESPN2, and Pay-Per-View, starting with preliminary bouts at 6:30 PM EST this Saturday, November 2nd, 2019. Here’s a breakdown of the action to come:

 

Controversy

It just wouldn’t be a Nate Diaz fight without a little bit of controversy leading up to the fight. This time in comes in an atypical test, a threat, and then eventually a statement from USADA clearing his name. While there was some doubt that Diaz would show up for this fight, he seems to be satisfied with the outcome of the whole ordeal and is ready to throw down.

That doesn’t mean things will be easy for him though. Jorge Masvidal enters the cage on the heels of back-to-back knockouts of Ben Askren and Darren Till – both equally violent. It’s been half a decade since someone had knocked Diaz out, but if there is anyone who can do it, it just might be Masvidal.

 

Tests for Young Guns

There are plenty of reasons to tune into the early fights as well (other than just to see how your picks did). The chief reason is in the featured prelim where rising star Johnny Walker (17-3) takes on his stiffest test to date. Coming off of 3 quick and devestating knockouts, Walker faced Corey Anderson (12-4), who looks to give him a test of his grappling that he has yet to face. Will Anderson test that wrestling defense, or will he be just another highlight reel finish for Walker?

In addition, 21-year old Edmen Shahbazyan (10-0) looks to continue his ascent up the middleweight division. The former Ronda Rousey training partner has won 3-straight inside of the octagon and has already climbed into the top 15. The next step in his quest to be the youngest champion ever is a bout against division stalwart Brad Tavares (17-5), who returns after a year long layoff.

Can these up-and-comers take out the veterans and solidify their places in their respective divisions?
