Forget WWE, Bryce Harper wants a UFC title belt

Championship belts are a new fad in baseball these days. Both Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer received title belts from the WWE after winning the Cy Young Award a few weeks ago, and even we handed out the EOB Heavyweight Belt throughout the season. It's one way to spread the brand, right?

The WWE is for 1990s rememberers though. It's all about UFC nowadays and Bryce Harper wants a piece of the action. In addition to getting "as big as a house," the Nationals phenom wants a UFC title belt for his mantle:

And since he's Bryce Harper, all he has to do is pretty much ask.

A BP homer while wearing a UFC title belt would be cool, but I'll be more impressed if Scherzer or Kershaw do a little 300-foot long-toss wearing their belts.
