New date, location for the Nate Diaz vs. boxing match Jorge Masvidal

The boxing match between former UFC stars and rivals Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal has been moved to a new date and location.

Originally scheduled for June 1 at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California, the rematch of sorts will now take place on Saturday, July 6, at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

The measure would have been taken to avoid a possible conflict with UFC 302 and a boxing match already scheduled for the same day.

In the UFC 302 main event from Newark, New Jersey, UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev defends his title against Dustin Poirier. That same day, Dmitry Bivol returns to action for a boxing match with Malik Zinad after his original opponent Artur Beterbiev suffered an injury during training that forced him out of the fight.

In November 2019, Masvidal defeated Diaz in the UFC 244 main event as the two men battled for the promotion’s BMF title. Doctors would stop the competition due to budget cuts.
