The Rock backed up recent comments made by UFC President Dana White regarding his status for the UFC 244 pay-per-view event.
While doing a recent Instagram Live video with White, Rock confirmed that he will present the winner of Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz with the “Baddest Mother F*****r” title belt at the show.
The Rock also stated that he would be in attendance for the UFC press conference on Friday where he promised that he would make the announcement of “something I wanted to tell the UFC fans and MMA community first,” according to ESPN.
It should be noted that The Rock is represented by Endeavor, which is the agency that also owns the UFC.
The former WWE Champion was last seen on WWE programming back on the Friday Night SmackDown on FOX premiere where he did an in-ring promo segment with Elias and WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
The UFC 244 pay-per-view event is set to take place this Saturday (November 2, 2019) at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York
