UFC Star Nate Diaz Brilliantly Responds To 'BMF' Belt Critics
Nate Diaz has blasted 'BMF' critics, telling them to "shut the f**k up" in a fiery outburst ahead of his fight against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244.
Stockton's favourite son challenged journalists and fans who are slamming the new title and said those criticising it have never stepped in the cage before.
"If there's anybody that's hatin' on it, like some of these journalists in here, it's because none of you are no fighters," he said in an explosive interview with TMZ Sport.
"You're (expletives), so shut the (expletive) up. Tell me I ain't the best mother (expletive) in the game - watch me fight the whole game and you."
Diaz added: "It's already a staple, and that we're fighting for the best mother (expletive) in the fight game. There's a belt for it. I called it against one of the other baddest mother (expletive)'s and everyone felt it, and we're like, 'This is what it is. These are the best guys in the game. We're going to watch it."
The pair of UFC veterans faced off against each other in New York last week ahead of their main-event bout on November 2.

Dana White, meanwhile, confirmed that 'The Rock' will present the 'BMF' title to the winner while also revealing the belt will cost $50,000 (£40,000) for the promotion to make.
"That's a good question. I think the belt's like 50 grand," he said when asked about how much the belt will set back the company.
"He's gonna," White added about Dwayne Johnson's involvement at UFC 244. "He's taking my job. Listen, if The Rock wants to do it, The Rock gets what The Rock wants."
