White: Rockhold Vs Gustafsson Targeted For UFC 227

I guess Luke Rockhold is giving up on that Bisping rubber match.

Instead, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder will make good on his promise to jump up to light heavyweight for a run at the division strap after his middleweight stint ended in disaster.

The means to that end would be a light heavyweight slugfest against two-time title contender Alexander Gustafsson, according to UFC President Dana White (via UFC Unfiltered), in a late summer showdown set for “The City of Angels.”

“In my perfect world, if everything goes perfect, and nothing ever goes perfect in this world, [it will be] Dillashaw vs Garbrandt, GSP vs Diaz would be the co-main, Gustafsson vs Rockhold and Brunson vs Antonio Carlos Jr.,” White said. “It’s very interesting.”

The aforementioned bouts — including the return of Georges St-Pierre — are planned for the upcoming UFC 227 pay-per-view (PPV) event on August 4, 2018 inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Rockhold (16-4) said goodbye to the 185-pound weight class after getting murdered by Yoel Romero at UFC 221. Gustafsson (18-4), meanwhile, has not competed since planting Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 109 roughly one year back.

Whether or not this bout — or any others — comes to fruition remains to be seen.

Dana White Says New York Gets First Dibs on Punishing Conor McGregor

It seems like just yesterday that Irish hooligan Conor McGregor was going nuts in Brookyln, smashing the windows of a van, and exiting the 78th Precinct as a guest of the New York City Police Department. Ah, we were so innocent then…

But alas, McGregor has long since been out on bail, and though he’s got a court date set, the smart money is on the UFC superstar never seeing the inside of a jail cell for his crimes. Which is whatever. It’s Conor – what do you expect?

However, there’s also the matter of the UFC themselves punishing McGregor for his sins. I mean, he did knock three fights off the UFC 223 card. So, are they going to suspend him? Fine him? Make him drink Xyience?

According the UFC boss Dana White, it’s all about the wait-and-see, as in, they’re going to wait and see what punishment New York State levies upon McGregor before they do anything.

Take it away, TMZ!

Jedrzejczyk: Dana White ‘Disgusted’ By UFC 223 Scorecards

Far be it from me (or anyone else) to defend the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC), known to make medical decisions without consulting a doctor while also calling fights without consulting a referee.

But I’m not sure the scorecards at UFC 223 were egregious enough to bolster Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s claim that she got hosed in her decision loss to Rose Namajunas, which left her in an 0-2 hole against “Thug” and void of the strawweight strap.

“Even Rose’s coach said after the verdict that I won that fight,” Jedrzejczyk told PolsatSport.pl, (via Bloody Elbow). “Numbers don’t lie. The commission in New York is very young. They are still learing how to score fights. Dana White was also a little bit disgusted by the scoring.”

Fights are scored by rounds, not how many punches were landed, which is why Namajunas was able to prevail after 25 minutes of back-and-forth action. In addition, White did comment on the UFC 223 scorecards (see it here) but his version of events are not congruent with the Pole’s plight.

Lost in translation?

Dana White on Relationship with Conor McGregor: ‘There’s a Mutual Respect Between Us’
