What Did Jorge Masvidal Bank for Winning the BMF Title at UFC 244?

By

The fight game's an unforgiving sport, just ask Conor McGregor about the memes that cropped up after his definitive loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. While there are tons of fighters out there who claim to be "the baddest" or "the best," very rarely do people live up to that hype or persona that they portray to the world. Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal do, which is probably why a special "BMF" belt was made for their UFC 244 bout, which earned both the organization, and the fighters, a lot of money. But just how much did they make?

After Nate Diaz had an amazing showing against former UFC Lightweight Champion and perennial threat Anthony "Showtime" Pettis, he floated the idea of fighting Jorge Masvidal for the honor of earning the title of "Baddest Motherf---ker." Masvidal, who was in attendance after delivering the fastest KO in UFC history against former Olympic wrestler and Bellator/One FC welterweight champ, Ben Askren, smiled and nodded, seemingly excited about this idea.
