Jorge Masvidal opened Nate Diaz up with bloody cuts, forcing a bloody stoppage in the UFC 244 main event at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday.

The cuts were so bad it forced a referee’s stoppage, anointing Masvidal as the “baddest mother f—–” in the game. He was even awarded with a $50,000 “BMF” belt by the Hollywood hardman and former WWE superstar The Rock.

It has been a wild year for Masvidal. He began 2019 by knocking out the English fighter Darren Till at a UFC Fight Night event in London in March. Four months later he broke the record for fastest knockout in UFC history, stopping Ben Askren with a flying knee at UFC 239.

Then, on November 2, he never looked out of his depth when he defeated Diaz with a statement-making performance.

Masvidal began the fight by charging at Diaz as if he were about to launch another flying knee, the same one he concussed Askren with. Masvidal laughed as Diaz ran away.

With quickfire slugging, head kicks, and ground-and-pound, Masvidal asserted an early authority on the fight.

By the third, it was clear Masvidal was bleeding heavily from cuts above his eye. They were so bad, the doctor intervened and said Diaz could not continue much to the chagrin of the crowd, who booed the verdict.

Masvidal was ahead on the Octagonside judges’ scorecards, leading 30-26, 30-27, and 30-26 at the time of the stoppage, with two judges regarding round two as a dominant, 10-8 round for the Floridian fighter, the ESPN reporter Marc Raimondi tweeted.

Diaz said after the loss that, well, bleeding happens. “Blood don’t hurt,” he said.

And Masvidal didn’t seem happy with the result, either, saying that because he did not get a chance to stop Diaz for good, he would welcome a rematch.

“I didn’t get to baptize Nate, so we’re going to run it back,” the man dubbed “Street Jesus” said in the middle of the Octagon.

Diaz needed multiple stitches to repair the wounds.
