Dana White says The Rock will present $50k BMF title to UFC 244 main event winner

Disney Studios Showcase Presentation At D23 Expo, Saturday August 24

UFC will have a special BMF Championship made for UFC 244's main event fight of Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz, and they're breaking the bank to make it.

When Masvidal and Diaz fight each other at UFC 244 on November 2 at Madison Square Garden, they will fight for the custom-made 'Baddest Mother F****r' or BMF title.

During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Dana White has confirmed exactly how much the BMF title has cost UFC to make, and the special guest that will be presenting the title to the winner on the night.

The UFC President said the BMF title has cost UFC $50,000 to make and The Rock will be taking over his role for the fight and presenting the winner with the title at UFC 244.

White said on the former WWE superstar presenting the BMF title: "He's taking my job. Listen, if The Rock wants to do it, The Rock gets what The Rock wants."

Masvidal was the fighter who initially invited The Great One to present the BMF title to him if he was able to beat Diaz in the main event of UFC 244.

The Rock tweeted in reply to Gamebred: "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."


The fight between Masvidal and Diaz has been in the works ever since Gamebred was called out by The Stockton Fighter following his win at UFC 241 against Anthony Pettis.

Diaz called out Masvidal after his victory, stating he wanted to fight him at a later date because he's the only other true gangster in UFC.

Gamebred's last fight was when he stopped Ben Askren with a flying knee inside five seconds at UFC 239 back in July. This was most likely when he caught the attention of The Stockton Fighter.

Having The Rock at UFC 244 to present the BMF title, which is worth $50k, to the winner of the main event will be a moment which both fighters and UFC fans will remember for the rest of their lives.
