Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal share final face off ahead of boxing match

Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal have nothing left to say to each other.

On Friday, Diaz and Masvidal both successfully made weight for their 10-round light heavyweight boxing match that goes down this Saturday at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., coming in at 175.6 and 175.2 pounds respectively.

While the fighters made weight earlier Friday morning, they participated in a ceremonial weigh-in Friday afternoon and then shared a final face off before the big event, with host Jimmy Lennon Jr. declaring “We’re going to have our fighters face off with security ready and necessary.”

Lennon’s words did not prove prescient though as Diaz and Masvidal stayed well clear of each other, standing several feet away before giving their final interviews, with Diaz peeling back the curtain on the ceremonial event.

“Yo, this whole shit’s cap. I already weighed in this morning,” Diaz said before smiling, flashing the peace sign and walking off stage.

Masvidal, in contrast, had a more traditional message ahead of the fight on Saturday.

“Just one more sleep,” Masvidal said. “I get to bring all this work I’ve been doing since January to fruition. I thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ for every moment, every thing. I’m going to put on an ass-whooping tomorrow, whether you guys like that or not. I’m here to do my job, I’m going to kill somebody tomorrow. All the shit-talking is over, now we get to fight, and either my camp was the right one or his camp was the right one, but we get to find out tomorrow. See y’all there.”

The Last Man Standing: Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal card takes place this Saturday, with the main card starting at 9 p.m. ET and is available for pay-per-view purchase on Fanmio, DAZN, and UFC Fight Pass. You can check out the rest of the weigh-in results here.
