Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to be in attendance for UFC 244 on Saturday, November 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Rock says he will be in the cage to wrap the belt around the winner of the main event between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz as the UFC crowns its first-ever Baddest Motherf*cker (BMF) champion.
The Rock will also be in attendance for a pre-fight press conference on Friday afternoon where he has promised a “big announcement.”
But while we wait to see what The Rock has in store for mixed martial arts fans, he is sharing his excitement for the pay-per-view event by cutting an enthusiastic promo for the Saturday night.
“Biggest & BADDEST @ufc fight of year this SATURDAY. @gamebredfighter VS @natediaz209 for the BMF Title,” The Rock wrote in an Instagram caption. “Nothing but respect for these two OG’s who are gonna light up and electrify Madison Square Garden, as only bad MF’s can. Looking forward to wrapping the title around the winner. Gonna be a wild, fun and historic night. You do not wanna miss this fight.”
