Dana White: Georges St-Pierre 'ain't fighting Conor McGregor' if he returns to UFC

“There is no status,” White said. “I knew what he was doing. That’s why I put (a mandatory title defense) into his contract. We both knew what was going on. I don’t know, man. I don’t think the guy wants to fight. I think he jumped in, grabbed some cash and went back to Canada.”

8:15PM ET- We kick things off  with “The Texicutioner” James Vick . Arguably a future champion in the UFC’s lightweight division and a very tough matchup for anyone at 155 pounds, Vick has gone 9-1 in the UFC and believes he has earned a top-ranked opponent. However, news broke yesterday that Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros are slated to headline UFC Fight Night 126 in Austin, Texas. James went to social media to protest the matchup and the UFC’s decision to snub Vick from the headlining bout on the card. We’ll be discussing the entire situation in depth.

Debets: The UFC Screwed Robert Whitaker

So there you have it . After one solitary month, Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder Georges St. Pierre is no more, relinquishing the belt he won at UFC 217 and elevating interim titlist Robert Whittaker to the position of undisputed champion. GSP now holds records for the second longest title reign ever (2,064 days), which he achieved at welterweight from 2008 to 2013, and the shortest ever title reign, with 33 days at middleweight. Surprised? UFC President Dana White isn’t. For all the BS White spewed about Whittaker being “next in line” for GSP should he emerge with the title, he admitted last week that he “expected” St. Pierre to vacate rather than defend his belt against the murderer’s row of contenders at 185 pounds . What does that mean? Effectively, that the 185-pound weight class was put on hold for 18 months for no other reason than for the UFC to make a boatload of cash in GSP’s return bout. Never mind that the logjam drove at least one top-five middleweight to another organization ; or that it devalued the middleweight belt to the point where it was little more than a stage prop rather than a symbol demarcating its holder as the undisputed best fighter of the weight class; or that it completely screwed over one of the most promising stars of the WME-era in Australia’s “Bobby Knuckles.

Dana White Goes Off on 'Hater' Fans Who Want Conor McGregor Stripped | BJPenn.com

Dana White has been making the rounds today and everyone wants to know about Conor McGregor. Going into 2018, his future in the UFC is completely unclear. On a mission to clear that up, White put his foot down and said that if McGregor does return, he’ll be defending his title against Tony Ferguson. Title defense criticisms have been what man fans target, as well as Ferguson in his ‘defend or vacate’ campaign, but White recently has said those critiques are completely overblown.

Cris Cyborg Explains Why She Re-Upped with the UFC, Details Her Long-Term Future | MMAWeekly.com

“Pay is always interesting. As a fighter, I feel I have a value both as a world champion and as a fan favorite,” Cyborg said. “Fighter compensation is a unique combination of ranking and overall fan popularity. Before I became UFC champion, I was able to use platforms like CBS, Showtime, Fight Pass, and FOX Sports 1 to build a brand that fans connected with and have followed for over a decade. For fighters, especially females, it is important to connect with your fans and build your brand, because ultimately that is what creates value. One of the main reasons we started producing the Cyborg Nation videos during fight week is because we saw the success it had with my fans, and how much they enjoyed getting behind-the-scenes access fight week.

Holly Holm Recognizes Similar Feel to ‘Cyborg’ Bout, Upset of Ronda Rousey at UFC 193

Holly Holm may never be able to top her monumental upset of Ronda Rousey when it comes to shock value, but comfort in the underdog role could be beneficial for “The Preacher’s Daughter” as she prepares for a different kind of challenge at UFC 219 . Holm is as much as a +325 underdog against Cristiane Justino in their women’s featherweight title bout scheduled for Dec. 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “Cyborg” is the most feared woman in the sport, with notorious punching power and an unbeaten streak that dates back to 2005. Still, Holm was considered much more of a long shot heading into her clash against the then unbeaten Rousey at UFC 193 in November 2015. The Jackson-Wink MMA standout made history that night in Melbourne, as she knocked out Rousey with a head kick and follow-up punches 59 seconds into round two of their bantamweight championship tilt. The victory made Holm one of the most recognizable talents in women’s MMA even as a three-fight losing streak would follow. Holm returned to the win column with a June knockout of Bethe Correia , but once again, she is facing long odds as she heads into a high-profile title fight.
