Breaking - the November 30 #TUF18 finale will feature the rubber match between @NateDiaz209 and @GrayMaynard
The first fight of the TUF 18 Finale (besides the men's and women's bantamweight finals) have been announced. Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard will fight at the TUF 18 Finale on November 30th in Las Vegas.
The pair were both members of the TUF season 5, with Diaz beating Maynard by submission in the semi finals. The Stockton native went on to win the entire show. Diaz lost a rematch with Maynard in 2011 via split decision.
Diaz contested for the title late in 2012, losing to Benson Henderson via unanimous decision. Maynard fought for the title twice, losing both times to Frankie Edgar.
Diaz is coming off losses to Henderson, and Josh Thomson. Maynard is coming off a single loss, to TJ Grant at UFC 160 in May.
ANNNNNND, as will all things Diaz, there is a twist...
