The Rock will appear at UFC 244

Just a couple weeks ago, The Rock was making clear he really wants to be at UFC 244 on Nov. 2, 2019, at Madison Square Garden in New York for the Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal fight. He also wants to present the “BMF” title to the winner. That’s not a real title, mind you, but something Diaz came up with that UFC President Dana White is actually having made to be presented to the winner.

As White told TMZ, The Rock will be there to present it:

Masvidal vs. Diaz was already a big fight. That the UFC is spending $50K on a belt just for promotional purposes and bringing in The Rock to present it makes it that much bigger.

We still don’t know if “The Great One” will appear on the SmackDown debut on FOX, so it’s at least possible we see him inside the Octagon before he’s back in a WWE ring.

How about that.
