Report: UFC Trying To Trademark “BMF” & “Baddest Motherf*cker”

In a few months at UFC 244, a pair of welterweights in Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz will battle for the inaugural BMF Championship.

It looks like the UFC is taking things a step further with the title as a report from Bloody Elbow is stating that the UFC has filed paperwork to trademark both “BMF” & “Baddest Motherf*cker.”

The following documents were filed by the UFC for the trademarks, which were obtained by Bloody Elbow:

There are a wide variety of ways that the UFC plans on potentially monetizing “BMF” & “Baddest Motherf*cker,” including in merchandise like footwear, Christmas tree decorations, action figures, title belts and more.

UFC President Dana White did state that the UFC 244 main event is going to be the first and only BMF Title bout in the promotion, but that doesn’t mean the UFC won’t try to monetize the potential trademarks in other methods.
