A fight ("highly-anticipated" is debatable) between a couple of UFC has-beens will take place on June 1 as Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal are set to square off in the boxing ring.

The bout will happen at the Kia Forum in Inglewood. Diaz vs. Masvidal is scheduled for 10 rounds at 175 pounds.

The only other time Diaz and Masvidal fought was at UFC 244 in November 2019. That's the where the mythical BMF (Baddest Mother F****r) title was concocted. Masvidal emerged victorious via TKO. set odds for the fight, and Masvidal is a massive favorite at -375.  Nate Diaz would pay out close to $300 on a $100 bet with an upset.

Diaz made his pro boxing debut last August in a decision loss to YouTuber-turned-prizefighter Jake Paul, though he fought with an arm injury.

Masvidal retired last April following a UFC loss to Gilbert Burns.

Masvidal beat Diaz in the fourth round at UFC 244 after that fight was halted due to a Diaz cut.

"Nate's a dead man walking," Masvidal said in a statement. "I can't wait to prove that last time was no fluke. He got saved by the referee. Now we are boxing, which he says is his forte, but he's got no shot at beating me. I'm not going to give him an inch in that ring to even breathe. If he thought our MMA match was bad, this is going to be much worse. I'm going to drown him. I want to put away any talk that him and I are the same, or that the referee saved the day. All of that talk ends June 1. Violence and throwing hands are in both of our bloods but as I proved before, I'm a far superior athlete and I'm a meaner fighter. When June 1 comes I'll put all unanswered questions to rest, live for the world to see."

Fanmio, which has previously distributed Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul in 2021, will present this fight in conjunction with Diaz's Real Fight Inc. and Masvidal's Gamebred Boxing Promotions.

"When we started our journey into boxing, we wanted to bring only the most entertaining fights together that would help transcend the world of combat sports," Solomon Engel, Fanmio CEO, said in a statement. "Being able to put together the Diaz vs. Masvidal rematch in the boxing ring is in line with that vision. These guys are the original and true BMFs, have continuously sold out arenas and sold millions of pay-per-views. June 1 gives each the opportunity to write a new chapter in their storied history, settle their score and show the world who will be the last man standing."
