Seems that the Paul vs Woodley rematch has attracted more star power than seen in any event in the fourth quarter of this year, UFC megastar Nate Diaz is one of those large aura personas. Other than him, there’s another fellow megastar Jorge Masvidal in the fight venue as well.
While Masvidal was just for the show, Diaz came with the purpose of supporting his longtime teammate from Stockton Chris Avila who just won his super-middleweight boxing fight against Anthony Taylor via majority decision. This fight situated in preliminary card didn’t have any build-up story until the day of weigh-ins when both Avila and Taylor’s teams collided with Diaz on Avila’s side and Taylor having Bellator MMA featherweight champion AJ McKee‘s back.
