Video: ‘The Rock’ escorts the ‘BMF’ belt to the Octagon at UFC 244

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been invading UFC all week and made his presence known once again last night (Sat., Nov. 2, 2019) at UFC 244 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, when he escorted the ‘BMF’ belt to the Octagon in preparation for the main event between welterweights Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal.

“The Rock” was first seen this week coming out on stage after the UFC 245 pre-fight press conference to announce his new film about MMA legend Mark Kerr. He then stepped on stage during Diaz and Masvidal’s staredown at UFC 244’s ceremonial weigh ins. Finally, he came out to his own ‘Rock’ theme music and walked the illustrious ‘BMF’ belt to the cage.

Johnson, who has been an avid MMA fan for years, isn’t the only celebrity that showed up last night at UFC 244. The President of the Unites States, Donald Trump, also made his walk to the arena floor, proving that UFC has reached a new stratosphere with its “BMF” promotion.

We’ll find out one way or another who is the “Baddest Motherf—ker” in the game when Diaz and Masvidal finally concludes.
