• ECW Legend Accuses UFC Of Ripping Off His Title Belt

ECW Legend Taz took to Twitter and accused Dana White’s MMA promotion Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) of their UFC BMF (Baddest Motherf**ker in the game) concept ripping off his legendary FTW (‘F**k the World’) Heavyweight Championship belt, which he brought back on All Elite Wrestling TV in 2020.

Here’s what the former ECW World Heavyweight Champion tweeted:

“Some fans don’t like it or feel it should be around but that’s ok to me! It has had buzz around it from the ECW years, negative or positive.. don’t matter. FTW belt is STILL here, all the others that wrestlers created been long gone.”

“Yes, that BMF concept is a complete ripoff of the FTW title… I really don’t give a sh*t because fans who know the history know that’s the vibe I started with the FTW title in late 90’s.”

Taz wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (fka Eastern Championship Wrestling) from 1993 until he left to join the World Wrestling Federation under the slightly different name ‘Tazz’ in late 1999.

In 2002, Tazz retired from active pro wrestling and became a color commentator on WWE TV till 2009, when he joined Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action!, where he worked till 2015.

On November 2nd 2019, in the main event of the UFC 244 PPV at MSG (which was UFC 500th LIVE Event), Jorge Masvidal defeated Nate Diaz via TKO (doctor stoppage) in their Welterweight (170 lbs) bout to become the UFC BMF Champion. The Title was presented to him by WWF Legend & Hollywood Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
