Dana Talks BMF Belt At UFC 244
On Saturday, Dana White officially announced that Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal will have a title fight in the main event of UFC 244.
For which belt?
The one that says Bad Mother F***er on it,
The BMF belt as it has to be called on nearly all platforms has been something Diaz claims he held for years, will sadly not be a continuing title inside the UFC.
“No. It’s a one-and-done,” the UFC President said this weekend. “Whoever wins, wins the belt and claims the title. ‘BMF.’”
“This fight is one of those fights that sort of took on a life of its own,” White said of Diaz and Masvidal. “Nate said in his interview this is a fight to see who’s the baddest motherf**cker in the game. He’s like, ‘That’s what this championship is.’ So alright, I’m in.”
“That fight started to come together late last night and we got it done,” White stated on September 7th. “We offered Usman fights and they didn’t jump on it, so we rolled and we made another fight.”
