Pic: UFC unveils new ‘Legacy Belt’ for ESPN+ debut

New, 41 comments

A few days back, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) released its official poster for UFC on ESPN: “Ngannou vs. Velasquez” (see it) and everyone on Twitter said it looked like garbage. So then I did a post calling it garbage, and everyone on Twitter attacked me for calling it garbage.

Some days I just can’t figure this stuff out.

That’s why I’ll keep my stupid opinion out of today’s post, which features the new “Legacy Belt” the promotion unveiled for all upcoming title fights. Moving forward, the champion keeps the same belt after every title defense, instead of getting a new one each time.

That shit is expensive, I’m sure.

That’s a pretty busy belt.

The first Legacy Belt will be awarded to the winner of Henry Cejudo vs. TJ Dillashaw, who collide in the UFC on ESPN+ 1 mixed martial arts (MMA) flyweight main event this Sat. night (Jan. 19, 2019) inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
