Fans gathered to take part in the efforts to promote the upcoming boxing match between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz got a little more than they bargained for on Thursday when a press conference erupted into a brawl between their two camps.

Outside of the Anaheim, CA’s Honda Center, where the former UFC stars will meet in the squared circle next month, a visibly disinterested Nate Diaz abruptly decided to leave the engagement. When he profanely denied a request for a stare down with his rival, words were exchanged and quickly escalated into a brawl.

While Jorge Masvidal was front and center for much of the extra show, Nate Diaz was at a safe distance and quietly observing it all unfold. Shortly afterwards, the Stockton native told FightHub TV, “I didn’t see anything, I was already gone.” Another verbal altercation occurred during that interview, but security intervened before any blows were thrown.

The chaotic scene unfolded as Fanmio, the Florida-based entertainment company that is spearheading the event, revealed the asking price for pay-per-view access to the telecast.

As the former promotional home of the main event participants is taking a break following its annual International Fight Week, Fanmio is hoping they can scoop up the same $79.99 price tag for the BMF-adjacent boxing spectacle.

While UFC fans have been shelling out that amount since UFC 283 in January of 2023, it will represent a price hike for those that favor the sweet science. 

By comparison, last Saturday’s Queensberry vs. Matchroom card that featured Deontay Wilder and Zhilei Zhang in the main in addition to a card packed with title bouts costed $69.99. May’s undisputed heavyweight championship between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury was the same price as well. 

Originally, the event was scheduled for June 1 at The Forum in Inglewood, CA until Fanmio decided to move away from the busy day in combat sports which also included UFC 302 later in the evening. 

The 10-round main event between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz is now set for July 6 at the Honda Center. The card will also feature former WBA and IBF champ Danny Jacobs taking on Shane Mosley Jr. in the co-main event. UFC champion Anthony Pettis will also make an appearance opposite Chris Avila.

It will be Nate Diaz’s second outing in professional boxing. He previously lost a unanimous decision to Jake Paul in August. It will be Masvidal’s first time boxing since he won a majority decision in his 2008 debut.
