After winning the BMF title, Ariel Helwani and Chael Sonnen spoke with Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal after UFC 244 about his victory vs. Nate Diaz. Although Masvidal was disappointed he couldn’t finish the “masterpiece”, he was happy with his performance. Masvidal says will take a rematch with Diaz, but also willing to fight the winner of Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington and other big fights. Masvidal indicated he had no qualms fighting Conor McGregor, but only if he gets a win first. Masvidal explains what it was like hanging with Roberto Duran and The Rock over the weekend.

The Rock took to social media to explain the fun he had being involved int his UFC event. He awarded Masvidal with the UFC BMF belt.

My big ass smile is real, cos I feed off energy and this @ufc crowd BLEW THE ROOF off Madison Square Garden and embraced me as one of their own.
And when I raised this BMF Title up high – the fans took the electricity to ANOTHER LEVEL.
Insane.
Thank you @danawhite, @ufc, all the fighters, coaches and especially the MMA fans for allowing me the honor to be part of your world.
All love. All respect.
See you down the road.
Rock – People’s Champ
