Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal live updates, round-by-round analysis

Will the fight be as entertaining as the brawl?

Nate Diaz’s team and Jorge Masvidal’s team threw down during a news conference June 6 in Anaheim, California, site of the actual boxing match – a light-heavyweight bout scheduled for 10 rounds Saturday night at the Honda Center.

“Now, on a personal level, yeah, I don’t like this dude at all, for what happened with my coach and (expletive),” Masvidal said of the brawl. “But we’ll figure it out July 6 when we get in there.”

It will be about more than the brawl.

But Masvidal was dominating the night – the oddsmakers have installed him as a favorite for this rematch.
