UFC Trying To Trademark The ‘BMF’ Title

UFC 244 will be seeing the debut of the ‘Baddest Motherf—er’ title, in a bout between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. Ahead of this event, the UFC is looking to trademark that title.

When Nate Diaz beat Anthony Pettis at UFC 241, he immediately took to the mic, to declare that he was the holder of the BMF Title. Subsequently, he declared that he wanted to defend this title against Jorge Masvidal. After a short period of uncertainty, this wish was granted. The two will face off in the main event of UFC 244, in November, at MSG.

However, the UFC is nothing, if not business-savy. Therefore, ahead of the bout, multiple requests have been filed to trademark both ‘BMF’ and ‘Baddest Motherf—er’ for multiple uses. Here is a breakdown of what they filed for: (via BloddyElbow)

UFC 244 is set to take place November 2nd, at Madison Square Garden. The BMF title will be up for grabs in the main event.
