Nate Diaz does not care for the words of those who criticize him, Jorge Masvidal and the BMF [“Baddest [expletive] in the Game”] title.
It’s rare for the UFC to have a five-round, non-title fight headline a UFC pay-per-view, but that will be happening on November 2 at UFC 244, which takes place at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
The fight began to take shape almost immediately at UFC 241, which marked Diaz’s first fight in the Octagon in three years. After his win over Anthony Pettis, Diaz called out Masvidal, calling himself and the Miami-based fighter the only “gangsters” left in the sport.
UFC President Dana White has stated a BMF title belt is being made for his fight alone and will be presented to the winner.
While most of the MMA community has embraced the matchup and BMF belt idea, others have trashed it. The latter are the kinds of people Diaz doesn’t have the time for.
“If there’s anybody that’s hatin’ on it, like some of these journalists in here, it’s because none of you are no fighters,” Diaz told TMZ on Sept. 19. “You’re [expletives], so shut the [expletive] up. Tell me I ain’t the best [expletive] in the game – watch me fight the whole game and you.
“It’s already a staple, and that we’re fighting for the best [expletive] in the fight game. There’s a belt for it. I called it against one of the other baddest [expletive]’s and everyone felt it, and we’re like, ‘This is what it is. These are the best guys in the game. We’re going to watch it.'”
