What has been said?
Nate Diaz:
‘Gamebred’ in a proper MMA fight. But, he feels UFC played a massive role in not letting that happen after the Stockton native decided to leave the promotion.
“I don’t know if I can sleep with doing that. Like we should be fighting a whole fighting so I can whip his whole a..s. you know what I’m saying,”
“I’m being so serious when I say that I want to fight them in MMA. Either Masvidal or Diaz in the PFL. Ten million dollar offer for either one of those guys.”
"The fanbase he has is from MMA, from the UFC. Why go up against our own fanbase? As a promoter, I never wanted to go against them.
"I know fans may buy both events but why do it if there are other dates available? Finally, the promotion heeded my advice and we were able to change dates."

Jorge Masvidal:
"I sell pay-per-views for a living,"
"You don't want to go up against other fight events and you definitely don't want to go up against the UFC.
"I have been trying to switch the date from the beginning."
