A New Challenger has appeared in the hunt for the BMF title, but according to him, that title is already his.
Nick Diaz, who has not fought since 2015 told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that the BMF title does not belong to UFC 244 winner Jorge Masvidal, who beat his brother Nate.

“The BMF, the 170, that’s my belt. But I am not going to get in my brother’s way of taking it, you know what I mean? As far as I’m concerned, that’s my belt,” the eldest Diaz said.
“So I’m like, ‘You just fought my baby brother.’ The reason why I am saying that is that he doesn’t got anything to be mad about, he ain’t tripping. We never skipped a beat. I have ups and downs with everybody but never with my brother. We don’t have that issue.”
“You want to talk about baptizing my younger brother? That’s on you,” Diaz continued. “I’ve never had nothing disrespectful to say but you don’t talk about baptizing my younger brother,” he said. “So you are already in a f***ed position if you fight with me,” said Nick.
“You don’t talk about baptizing my younger brother. That’s my baby brother, you don’t talk like that to no one. So you want to say that, that’s on you. But who knows, ups and downs in life, I can relate to you. That’s why I ain’t mad at you.”
