You had to figure that workouts for a fight involving both Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal would have a very particular kind of energy, but the latter fighter still managed to exceed expectations.
Rather than do boring things like talk to the media, or, y’know, work out, Masvidal instead called up fans to spar with each other. The fans were given boxing gloves and only allowed to deliver body shots, but that didn’t stop the entire situation from being a wild spectacle.
Some of the fights really did get intense.

The whole show ended up lasting for several fights, until an official stepped in and called the impromptu event off. Those attending were not happy to see the fights end.
Aaaand they shut it down. Can’t believe it actually lasted this long. pic.twitter.com/B8P7zajEiD— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) October 30, 2019
