Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor claims that he designed the BMF Championship belt.
“I designed that ‘Bad Motherf***er’ belt,” McGregor said at a Parimatch sponsored press conference (via Simon Samano of MMA Junkie). “I actually designed that. I signed off on the design of how they are creating that belt.”
There is no word at this time as to who designed the belt, but UFC President Dana White did say that it cost about $50,000 to create.
McGregor has his eyes set on the bout between Masvidal and Diaz, with a potential fight against the winner looming in the future.
“So most certainly that belt was brought into fruition, brought to life because of me: the real bad motherf***er,” he said. “So most certainly one of those men is on my radar.”
UFC 244 takes place on Saturday, November 2 from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
