Conor McGregor throws shade at UFC 244 BMF belt

UFC 244 is shaping up to be one of the biggest cards in recent UFC history, but that doesn't stop Conor McGregor from ridiculing it

November second the UFC will put on one of the most fan-friendly main events ever constructed. Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz will headline UFC 244 in a bout that will be for the inaugural BMF (Bad mother fucker) belt. While there have been critics of this, that it takes the sport in a less serious direction with so called “made up” belts, most in the MMA community are positive. However, Conor McGregor seems content at taking a jab at the UFC 244 main event and BMF title.

Taking to Twitter, McGregor asked when UFC 244 takes place, as if it wasn’t already one of the years most anticipated events.


This garnered a response from former foe Dustin Poirier – who has been looking for a rematch with McGregor. The Irishman was, however, quick to shut Poirier down.

McGregor hasn’t fought in the UFC since his fourth round submission loss to Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. He has, surprisingly enough, verbally agreed to a boxing match with Irish champion Luke Keeler.
