The long-awaited rematch between Diaz and Masvidal occurred on July 6 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

In the fight, Diaz overwhelmed Masvidal with punches for ten rounds. The former BMF Champion did his best to keep his opponent off him with power punches but couldn’t stop the pressure from the California native. Ultimately, the fight went the distance, with Diaz winning by majority decision.
