What are the odds?
Nate Diaz or Jorge Masvidal will be crowned the ‘Baddest Motherf*****’ in the UFC in November – and The Rock is set to be on hand to present them with the belt.
The welterweights will clash in New York at UFC 244 with the UFC set to have a special $50,000 belt created for the ocassion.
The fight was made after Diaz called out his rival following his victory over Anthony Pettis in his first fight in three years.
Masvidal agreed and tweeted Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson: “I’m telling Dana White I want you to put it around my waist.”
The former WWE star and current Hollywood leading man, replied: “Doing all I can to make this fight.
“If I can and you win, I’ll put the belt around your waist at MSG – consider it done.
“Already shaping up to be one of the biggest and most electrifying fights in UFC history. Can’t wait.”
And now UFC president White has said he will step aside and let The Rock do the honours.
“He’s gonna [do it],” he told TMZ. “He’s taking my job. Listen, if The Rock wants to do it, The Rock gets what The Rock wants.”
White also revealed his reasoning behind the unique belt which will be a one-off.
“I said to my guys, ‘Listen, tell me if I’m crazy, but what if we think about actually having a ‘baddest motherf***** in the game belt,’ and my guys loved it,” he added.
“We started talking about it, and we went into the design team at the UFC [and] we started to design it.”
Tate not in favour of BMF
Former UFC champion Miesha Tate believes the UFC is becoming more like WWE after the introduction of the Baddest Motherf***** belt.
Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal will clash in New York for the one-off title, but Tate is far from impressed.
“It really does marry that WWE feeling to the UFC in a way that’s never been done before,” she told Sirius XM radio.
“If you start putting the belt around people who are not [the best], then what does the belt mean, exactly?
“I’m a huge fan of both, I love watching them fight, but to put a belt around one of them, I just think it’s a bit odd.
“A belt in any premier organisation is supposed to mean you are the best in the world. I’m not hating on these guys, huge fan of both fighting styles but why not make it for a trophy?”
