It will be Diaz’s first appearance since his defeat by Jorge Masvidal in 2019 while Edwards makes a quick return to the Octagon following his aborted bout over Belal Muhammad earlier this month.
This will be one of the first UFC events that will aim to have fans at the event. How good is that and how strange will it be to see actual fans at a fight? One thing is for sure we can’t wait for this fight.
