Jorge Masvidal will face his old best friend, Colby Covington at the main event of UFC 272. The two trained and lived together, and they’ve been side by side on their journey. After a series of unfortunate events, their friendship went to the trash, and now they can’t wait to bang each other’s heads in the octagon.
Both are huge superstars, and fans can’t wait to see them play. Masvidal made headlines online with an unbelievable knee-knack knockdown of Ben Askren. UFC veteran, an OG of the fighting game, Nate Diaz noticed this and called him out to fight. Nate suggested a BMF (Baddest Motherfu**r) belt to the winner of this bout and the UFC liked the idea.
They introduced the belt and Hollywood star The Rock arrived in the octagon to wrap the belt around the winner’s waist. Masvidal brutalized Diaz, and the fight had to be stopped after he suffered a dangerous cut above his eye. Masvidal walked away with the belt and certainly enjoyed the limelight that came with it.
Dana White would love to see Jorge Masvidal hit the BMF belt against Colby Covington
Masvidal loves his belt and he never puts it first. He confronted Kamaru Usman twice, and he asked him to give him the belt after he beat him for the cold. Masvidal denied the comment, and now Dana White discussed it in his recent interview.
Pat McAfee in his interview said, “We won the Baddest Motherfu*r championship when Rock debuted in Madison Square, I think, he cut the whole ad. When you think about bigger marketing things like that, like the BMF belt, shouldn’t it? You don’t think that should be put on the line? “
Dana answered the question and said, “We won the BMF title only once, so glad we did. But yeah, you’re right, I should probably put that belt on when there’s no world title on the rope. Because Masvidal has it. ”
