UFC 244: Celebrities, fighters react to disappointing stoppage of Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz

For three rounds at UFC 244, fans were treated to the kind of action promised when Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz were matched up for the "BMF" championship. But a nasty cut initially opened over the right eye of Diaz in Round 1 led the ringside physician to call off the fight between Rounds 3 and 4.

It was an unsatisfying result in a fight with branding based on two bad men with no quit going to war. Both fighters were visibly frustrated with the decision as Masvidal amped up the crowd to continue chanting their displeasure with the result.
