Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Wants To Be At Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has made it clear that he is a fan of Jorge Masvidal. In fact, if he has his way, he will be at Masvidal’s next fight against Nate Diaz.
The UFC announced that Jorge Masvidal would be taking on Nate Diaz, in the main event of UFC 244. This bout takes place in November, at Madison Square Garden. Moreover, it will be for Diaz’s self-proclaimed “Baddest Mother F—er” championship.
This championship belt that Diaz has created has garnered much attention. UFC President Dana White went so far as to say they will create a ‘BMF’ title to present to the winner of the fight. In accordance with that, The Rock also wants to be involved.
The Rock was expressing his excitement about the UFC making this bout. Subsequently, Masvidal reached out to The Rock via Twitter, to make a request.

The Rock, who Masvidal notes is a fellow Flordian, was quick to respond.
Doing all I can to make this fight. If I can and you win, I’ll put the belt around your waist at MSG – consider it done. Already shaping up to be one of the biggest and most electrifying fights in @ufc history. Can’t wait. @GamebredFighter @NateDiaz209 #respect #BMF #UFC244 ⚡️ https://t.co/nVTIeBtkgv

It was already going to be a crazy sight, having the BMF belt created. However, if The Rock put it around Jorge Masvidal, or Nate Diaz for that matter, it would be a one of a kind occasion.
