4. What does Jorge Masvidal have to say about his BMF title being given away?

Some thought that Masvidal might be upset that White was giving his title away, but that's far from the truth.

“I love it,” Masvidal said on The MMA Hour. “Keep it alive. They picked the right fighters to do it, that are going to f****** give their life. The first BMF fight, you got to see what it should be about: Guys trying to kill each other, and no matter what, pushing forward through. Because if the referee doesn’t stop that, I literally would have to kill Nate Diaz, because he was going to keep coming, keep coming, and keep coming. And I was more than ready to kill him. That’s what it needs to be like. When you get in there, you’ve got to understand, you’ve got to go for it all, put on a show for these motherf****** around the world, live, everybody. And I think they picked the right two candidates to do that.”

It's rumored that Masvidal may even be on hand to wrap the BMF belt around the new fighter's waist.
