A few years back, the title of BMF Champion was a once-in-a-lifetime event. But the championship has since become a major focus on the biggest event of the year. Interestingly, the title has a much bigger fan base now than it did when the sport started, mostly because of the fighters. Season veterans Masvidal and Diaz were the only contenders the fans could accept. The BMF champion’s role is not for fighters who have phony personalities, but for naturally polarizing individuals.
Kamaru Usman is the reigning bmf champion
Jorge Masvidal is the newest BMF champ, and he’s ready to fight for it in his next fight. Masvidal won the BMF title during his UFC 244 win over Nate Diaz, and the BMF has a special championship belt that the UFC has reportedly spent $50k to create. Masvidal has not fought since November.
Kamaru Usman will retire after his win over Masvidal in the last fight. He’s slated to retire after UFC 261, but hasn’t yet announced a date. It is expected that the fight will take place before the end of this year. Usman’s last bout was in 2014, and he defended his title against Masvidal with flying kicks and elbows.
The BMF has a very long list of fighters. The most recent champion is Jorge Masvidal, who beat Gilbert Burns and Matt Covington. The UFC does not recognize the BMF championship as official gold. It’s not the only belt in the BMF, as other UFC champions also hold it. Masvidal may be able to claim the BMF title if there is a rematch.
While the BMF championship is a one-time title, Dana White has said repeatedly that the title belongs to the winner of a UFC fight. This means that if Masvidal wins at UFC 251, Kamaru Usman could steal it. He’ll need to win this fight to make it to UFC 251.
Kamaru Usman, a former welterweight champ, has won nine of his ten most recent fights. This is if we compare him to GSP, who has been the dominant fighter in UFC for many decades. However, it’s worth noting that St-Pierre has more striking power than Usman. He’s also a more versatile grappler, which can be a plus.
Masvidal has fought Usman twice in the past. The two fought in 2015 and Usman won the first fight. The second fight could be a major PPV main event. Usman’s last bout against Masvidal failed to land, but his recent training with Masvidal could make it a title fight. It’s not clear who Usman will face in his next bout.
Jorge Masvidal is a former bmf champion
The pugilist is no stranger to controversy. While a teenager, Masvidal had the worst beating of his life, forcing his mother to keep him in a mental institution. Masvidal was hospitalized several days after the beating. Masvidal began visiting his father every day after learning the truth. After learning the truth, Masvidal was determined to never suffer another beating and began carrying a “gadget,” a tube sock with a lock stuffed end. Masvidal Sr. began planning his revenge over those nine years.
Masvidal, despite his defeat, has been in the news. In his first title defense, Masvidal won a BMF belt against Nate Diaz in January. He has fought many notable UFC fighters and has won three of his four fights. The former “BMF champion” is a popular MMA fighter in the United States.
Masvidal had no intention of defending his title after defeating Nate Diaz in November, but the title fight was largely symbolic and was part of a UFC pay-per-view card. Masvidal hasn’t fought since then, losing back-toback title fights against Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, and Colby Covington. Masvidal was a UFC guest fighter in July and stated that he would love to fight Diaz again for the title.
Masvidal, a former BMF champion has been the subject many debates. While it is a well-known fact that Masvidal is a former bmf champion, there are many things to consider about the former BMF champ. The most important thing is that he is a hard worker and a good competitor. With that in mind, it is imperative that Masvidal fight his next opponent for the BMF belt.
Rafael dos Anjos (the UFC lightweight champion) demanded that Masvidal’s BMF title be taken from him. Nate Diaz even tweeted about the arrest on Twitter. If the former BMF champ is ready for a UFC fight, he is the man to beat. Besides that, Masvidal has nothing to lose. It could be Masvidal’s most entertaining fight.
Conor McGregor is a former bmf champion
Conor McGregor, a former UFC lightweight champion wants to fight Jorge Masvidal (a welterweight) for the “BMF” belt. UFC President Dana White believes that the fight is not a good idea. The Irishman has not fought in 15 years and is currently under investigation for sexual-assault in Ireland. McGregor has not denied the allegation, but he has not ruled out a rematch.
It’s not entirely clear what exactly will happen when McGregor fights Masvidal. The BMF belt is a one-of-one belt, which means only the winner can hold it. McGregor, a former champion of the BMF, is eager to regain the belt that he won in a double championship promotion. McGregor is planning a summer return, and Masvidal is also planning his next octagon appearance.
In addition to being the only UFC lightweight champion to have won two divisions, McGregor is the only former BMF champion to hold title belts in two weight classes. McGregor has stated that he would love to challenge fighters for the title. If he doesn’t win the belt, he could fight another fighter, such as Kamaru Usman, or even RDA.
Although a former lightweight champion, McGregor hasn’t fought since fall 2018, the UFC tapped him for the title in the main event of UFC 244. McGregor has made some outrageous statements about the title, and the belt, and wants to make it his. It’s unlikely that he’ll fight Diaz, though, but he has hinted at challenging for it.
When the lightweight title fight with Dos Anjos was scheduled, Rafael Dos Anjos and McGregor were both training for the bout. However, Rafael Dos Anjos suffered a broken foot while training, and McGregor’s main event was subsequently cancelled. Both fighters were unable to prepare for their bouts due to the short time they had. The UFC has a list of former bmf champions, and Conor McGregor is the only former UFC lightweight champion who has a MMA belt.
Colby Covington was a former UFC Welterweight Champion
Colby Covington is a mixed martial artist who currently competes for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Born on February 22, 1988, he started wrestling at Thurston High School in Oregon, where he won the state championship as a senior. After high school, Covington attended Iowa Central Community College where he shared a room with Jon Jones. He then transferred to Oregon State University, where he was awarded two All-American honors. He also became the Pac-10 champion.
After winning UFC 225, Covington lost his interim lightweight title to Demian Maia, which fueled speculation about his future. Covington was forced to accept his limitations and embraced his new found interest in pro wrestling. After his loss, Covington didn’t get to fight Kamaru Uman. After losing to Kamaru Usman, he lost to Jorge Masvidal, who has a more impressive MMA resume.
After losing his title in two bouts, Covington fought Jorge Masvidal, a top contender. In the third round, Masvidal stunned Covington, but the fight lasted five rounds, with both fighters exchanging strikes. Covington then landed heavy ground-and-pound and attempting submissions. In the end, Usman was defeated by Covington.
The UFC may now consider stripping Covington’s interim welterweight title to make way for Tyron Woodley who has won three consecutive fights. However, the UFC is still weighing the pros and cons of each of these fights. Despite Covington’s defeats, UFC fans still consider Covington to be one the most skilled 170lb fighters around the globe.
Although the title was undisputed by Woodley, Covington would have won against Woodley the interim welterweight title. A title win against Woodley would have opened the door to a title run similar in style to Usman’s. Jones is not currently a fighter, but Ciryl Gane has been criticised for her inept wrestling skills. Overall, Covington has the best resume of any active UFC welterweight without a belt.
