NATE DIAZ and Jorge Masvidal were among the stars in attendance for Jake Paul's rematch with Tyron Woodley.
On the undercard in Florida, Diaz's training partner Chris Avila beat Anthony Taylor, a former sparring partner of Paul's.
It meant the UFC veteran was ringside to support Avila, who went on to win a points decision over eight rounds.
Soon after, Masvidal, 37, who beat Diaz, 36, in 2019, took his seat in the front row.
He is a long-time American Top Team training partner and friend of Woodley's and was there to support the former UFC champion.
But Masvidal has also feuded with Paul in recent months, leaving both open to a future boxing match down the line.
Before the YouTuber knocked out Ben Askren in April, the two trained together and even posed for pictures.
But when Paul signed to face Woodley in his next fight, it saw his relationship with Masvidal turn sour.

The pair then began to publicly trash talk, leaving the door open to a grudge match down the line.
In Paul's first three fights, he beat YouTuber 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Askren, also 37.
But he then followed it up with an eight-round points win over Woodley, 39, in August.
Paul, 24, was set to fight Tommy Fury, 22, afterwards, until the British former reality TV star pulled out with a broken rib and chest infection.
Woodley then signed as a late replacement, setting up the anticipated rematch in Tampa.
