The Rock to present BMF belt to Diaz-Masvidal UFC 244 winner


"The Rock gets what The Rock wants."

That's what UFC president Dana White said to TMZ, confirming the former WWE and movie megstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will indeed present the winner of Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal with the newly-created BMF belt at UFC 244.

The two are facing off in the main event of the show, emanating from New York City's Madison Square Garden. The BMF title, conceptualized by Diaz, will be a one-off promotional tool and not an official championship to be defended.

Earlier this month, Masvidal tweeted that Johnson should present the belt to the winner to which Johnson replied that if he could make the fight, he would do it. it appears his schedule has been cleared to do just that.

When asked, White told TMZ the belt will cost $50,000 to create and that Johnson will present it to the winner. He is a longtime fan of the sport and has been seen cageside at events before.
