The BMF (Baddest Mother F***er) title, initially introduced in November 2019, gained significant attention after Jorge Masvidal’s TKO victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 244. Originally thought to be a one-time event, the title re-emerged almost four years later at UFC 291 when Justin Gaethje knocked out Dustin Poirier to claim the vacant belt. Gaethje’s subsequent defense against Max Holloway at UFC 300 resulted in a dramatic last-second knockout defeat for Gaethje.

UFC CEO Dana White recently hinted that the BMF title would be in play again soon. During the UFC 302 post-fight news conference, White confirmed that plans were underway for the next BMF title fight, indicating ongoing preparations and high interest in continuing the legacy of the belt.

Max Holloway, who is next in line to challenge featherweight champion Ilia Topuria, is central to these plans. Topuria has explicitly requested that the BMF title be contested in their upcoming fight, showing the growing prestige and desire among fighters to compete for this unique accolade. White expressed enthusiasm for the enthusiasm surrounding the BMF belt, signaling broad approval for its continued relevance in UFC events.

White also highlighted several significant events on the horizon, including fights at The Sphere in September and Madison Square Garden in November. These upcoming matches are likely to feature high-stakes battles, possibly including the next chapter in the BMF title saga. The UFC’s schedule is packed with major events, promising further excitement and development in the promotion’s evolving landscape.
