Kamaru Usman has been talking with UFC president Dana White over his desire to capture another title.
Not to be mistaken, it’s not another title in a different weight class, but rather a title that was created for fun.
Usman vs Jorge Masvidal for the UFC welterweight title will headline the UFC 251 pay-per-view event. The welterweight champion wants the BMF title that Masvidal holds.

Speaking to TMZ this week, White confirmed that Usman wants the BMF belt. However, due to Masvidal beating Nate Diaz for it last year and it just being for fun, he can’t have the title.
“It’s not on the line,” White said of the BMF. “Usman wants it to be on the line so bad. He will not stop texting me saying ‘I don’t understand why this belt isn’t on the line. This guy’s running around saying he’s the BMF champion.’ He’s like ‘I want to squash it all. He’s not going to take my title, and I’m going to take his BMF belt.’ Believe me, Usman has not stopped terrorizing me about this.”
“That was like a one-and-done, the BMF title.”
