After disposing of Nate Diaz at UFC 244, Jorge Masvidal wants to fight the baddest mother—er in WWE, for some reason

I have some bad news for all those MMA “purists” like Miesha Tate, who think the newly-created “Bad Mother Fucker” belt makes UFC look too much like WWE.

Turns out Jorge Masvidal, who can capture the gangster crown in the UFC 244 main event, is hoping to parlay a potential victory over Nate Diaz into other money-making opportunities, like a “BMF” showdown in WWE.

Just watch out for those rubber mallets.

“I want you to tell me who the baddest mother-effer is over on the WWE, and that’s who’s next after this fight,” Masvidal told former WWE champion Booker T. “God willing, I get my hand raised on Nov. 2, God allows me to get this victory, I want to go over and challenge the baddest mother-effer in WWE, because I know there are some bad mother-effers over there.”

Just don’t expect it to be Brock Lesnar, who already ran from “Gamebred” at Whole Foods.

UFC President Dana White was forced to create a fake title because the real one won’t be defended. It seems welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, is playing hard to get and top contender, Colby Covington, wants too much money.

That leaves the No. 3-ranked Masvidal stuck between “The Rock” and a hard place.
