Colby Covington’s Blunt Take on the UFC BMF Title: Is it a Genuine Honor or Just Hype?

Covington Expresses Skepticism About the 'Baddest Motherfucker' Title in MMA

“Colby Covington Sounds Off on the UFC BMF Title: A Promotional Tool or a Legitimate Honor?”

Colby Covington, never one to shy away from expressing his opinions, didn’t hold back when discussing the UFC’s “Baddest Motherfuckerr” (BMF) title. In a recent interview, the outspoken welterweight contender dissected the BMF title’s significance and its place in the MMA world.

Covington’s Controversial Take

Covington, known for his brash and often controversial remarks, didn’t mince words when sharing his thoughts on the BMF title.

“The BMF title, it’s nothing more than a promotional tool,” Covington declared, expressing skepticism about the title’s true value. “It’s just a way to make a fight seem bigger than it really is.”

The BMF Title’s Origin

The BMF title, initially introduced for the UFC 244 showdown between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, was met with both excitement and criticism from fans and fighters alike. While some lauded the concept as a unique and entertaining addition to the sport, others, like Covington, view it as a marketing gimmick.

The Nate Diaz Factor

Covington’s critique extended to Nate Diaz, one of the most iconic figures associated with the BMF title. While Diaz’s fanbase embraces his BMF status, Covington questioned its authenticity.

“Nate Diaz, he’s just a journeyman,” Covington asserted. “He hasn’t won a UFC title in over a decade. He’s just an average fighter, but somehow he’s the ‘baddest motherfuckerr’? Give me a break.”

Covington’s Championship Ambitions

As Covington continues his pursuit of the UFC welterweight title, he remains focused on securing a rematch with current champion Kamaru Usman. To him, winning the legitimate championship belt takes precedence over any promotional accolade.

“I’m here to win the real title,” Covington emphasized. “The BMF title doesn’t mean a thing to me. It’s just a marketing gimmick. I want the welterweight strap, and I’m coming for it.”

A Difference of Opinion

While Colby Covington dismisses the BMF title as a mere promotional tool, others within the MMA community appreciate its entertainment value and the recognition it brings to fighters who may not hold traditional championship belts.

The Future of the BMF Title

As the debate over the BMF title’s legitimacy persists, one thing is clear: it has sparked discussions and generated excitement within the MMA world. Whether it remains a promotional tool or evolves into something more meaningful, the BMF title’s place in the sport continues to be a topic of contention and conversation.
