Not everyone is a fan of the headlining ‘BMF’ title fight between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz at UFC 244.
Masvidal and Diaz have come under fire from the likes of Kamaru Usman and Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson, and Diaz has seemingly fired back at the critics with a cryptic Tweet.
The UFC fan favorite posted the following Tweet on Wednesday evening, just days after several fighters came out and expressed their disdain for the BMF belt.
“Ur a group of pussys,” Diaz tweeted.
Usman, the current UFC welterweight champion, slammed Diaz and Masvidal for their combined 24 losses and said neither man is deserving of being crowned the ‘baddest motherfu-ker’ in the UFC.
“They have 20 losses combined. You’ve got 20 losses? Sit your ass down. You’re not the baddest mother f*cker,” Usman said at a recent media scrum.
Johnson, who is expected to return to the UFC in the new year, had the following to say about the BMF belt.
“I don’t want any of these fake-ass ‘BMF,’ ‘SMF’ or whatever the f—k you want to call that sh-t. I just want to fight for the real title. How are you going to act like you win the ‘BMF’ or something – how are you going to go home to your kids and be like, ‘You know what? I won one title: Bad Motherf—r’?’” he continued. “But at the end of the day, they’re going to say the bad motherf—r is going to be the champion, right? So that sh-t is imaginary. It’s trash.”
All hate aside, Masvidal vs. Diaz is shaping up to be one of the biggest fights of the year. The headlining welterweight bout will take place at UFC 244 on Nov. 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
