Get ready for the highly anticipated rematch between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje for the “BMF” title at UFC 291. Find out what fighters think about the significance of the belt and who they believe is the baddest motherf—er in the UFC.
The highly anticipated rematch between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje is set to take place at UFC 291 in Salt Lake City. This time, they will be fighting for the coveted "BMF" title, a belt that has divided opinions among fighters. While some see it as a gimmick, others believe it adds value to the fight.
The first encounter between Poirier and Gaethje was nothing short of spectacular. It was a back-and-forth battle that earned them the "Fight of the Year" award in 2018. Now, they are ready to step into the octagon once again and put on a show for the fans.
The addition of the "BMF" belt to the fight has raised some eyebrows. The belt, which stands for "Baddest Motherf—er," was originally created for a match between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. It was meant to add excitement to a pay-per-view event that lacked championship bouts. Now, Poirier and Gaethje find themselves vying for the same title.
Opinions on the significance of the "BMF" belt vary among the fighters on the card. Some, like welterweight Michael Chiesa, believe that it adds value to the fight and validates the title. Others, like Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson, see it as gimmicky and question its purpose. Bobby Green, on the other hand, sees it as a way to separate the real fighters from the fakes.
Regardless of the opinions, one thing is clear: Poirier and Gaethje are focused on the fight itself. Both fighters have expressed their desire to win the "BMF" belt, but they also have their sights set on the lightweight championship. The winner of this fight will likely face the winner of the upcoming title bout between Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira.
As the fight approaches, anticipation is building. Fans are expecting a thrilling and violent showdown between two evenly-matched competitors. Poirier and Gaethje have both acknowledged the improvements they have made since their first fight, and they are ready to put on a show for the fans.
While the "BMF" belt may not be necessary for this fight to feel like a championship bout, it adds an extra layer of excitement. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying that Poirier vs. Gaethje 2 is a fight that fans won’t want to miss.
