Saturday's main card action between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz at UFC 244 is shaping up to be something for the ages, and at least one of the participants feels like there's something special in the works for him.

Ahead of the fight, Masvidal dropped an amazing quote, waxing poetic about how he was made for this type of drama.

"I'm 100% sure when God was designing me, he had one thing in mind and it was this." said Masvidal. "Because when I tell you I was made for this, not just physically - my cells are designed for this - but my soul needs this."

When Masvidal is saying stuff like this, there's simply no doubting that his heart is completely in it when he steps into the octagon. He's wholly devoted to giving every fight his all, especially this highly-anticipated showdown with Diaz.

This is more than just fighting for him. It's a calling.

But it's not just him who's weighing in. Even his former opponents have given him the edge over Diaz. Ben Askren, the man Masvidal dropped in record timing when they squared off, has him taking home the win on Saturday Night.

Talk is only talk, though, and it's just about time for Masvidal and Diaz to leave their words on the sidelines and finally duke it out.
