BMF Belt being made; The Rock set to present winner

September 21, 2019

The BMF belt is a real thing as Dana White confirmed that the belt will be awarded to the winner of the Jorge Masvidal-Nate Diaz winner at UFC 244 on November 2nd.

White told TMZ Sports that the belt is being manufactured and will cost around $50,000 to make.  In addition, The Rock, Dwayne Johnson will present the belt to the winner on the night of the event.  Masvidal had pitched the idea of the former WWE and current movie star to present the belt to the winner.  The Rock was interested.

Payout Perspective:

Something out of nothing.  The BMF belt is now a thing as we’ve outlined the promotion’s applications to register the trademark.  This Thursday, it held a press conference to promote the event.  The price of the belt seems a little over the top and will receive scrutiny from those that are concerned with fighter pay.  The belt is a textbook definition of a made-up belt and its not clear whether this is just a ‘one and done’ event.
