Despite a somewhat unfitting ending for the ‘BMF’ title fight, Jorge Masvidal’s excellent performance against Nate Diaz capped off a memorable 500th event for the UFC.

With the main event bout ending via a doctor’s stoppage thanks to a deep cut on Diaz’s eyebrow, Masvidal cemented his position as a ‘Fighter of the Year’ contender and as a new major star within the UFC.
