UFC officials came out of left field when it named the headliner for its 500th event ever.

Initially working toward a welterweight title defense with champion Kamaru Usman taking on challenger Colby Covington, UFC president Dana White surprised everyone when he named a titillating non-title showdown between fan favorites Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal as the UFC 244 headliner, which will take place on Nov. 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Though there isn’t a UFC championship on the line in the UFC 244 main event, Masvidal and Diaz will be squaring off for the fictitious “Baddest Motherf—er” belt that Diaz conjured out of thin air. With that designation immediately gaining traction, White has decided to create a BMF belt for the winner.
