UFC 244 takes place on Nov. 2 at Madison Square Garden, and it will mark the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s introduction of the “BMF” belt, which will be awarded to the baddest motherf****r who wins the main event between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz . Now, regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of this sort of fun being had at the highest level of MMA, I couldn’t help but notice that two of my favorite universes have come together , with the “BMF” belt conjuring up memories of Jules Winnfield’s wallet from “Pulp Fiction.” For context: If there’s any type of film that I’ve watched more than fight tape, then it’s most certainly the marvelous world of cinema, as I was a film major in college for some time. And like any film buff who grew up in the ’90s (an era when it was much easier for young kids to get into R-rated movies/rent a UFC event on VHS), I gravitated more toward movie covers like “Reservoir Dogs” when perusing the aisles of my local Blockbuster – thus introducing me to the universe of director Quentin Tarantino.

That said, no matter how large the Hollywood director gets, Tarantino – as seen in his most recent release of “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood” – still seems to use his mainstream platform to speak to audiences of the early days, which, at least in spirit, is something that hardcore MMA fans who still exist can appreciate.
