What seems like an obvious title eliminator in the UFC middleweight division between Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier has been made for October.

Whittaker will take on Cannonier at UFC 254, scheduled for Oct. 24

Kevin Holland is going to fight next week. He got some money for tonight,but not his show money. Dana said Holland had a great attitude.

Fighters that didn’t fight tonight due to cancellations will also get paid ‘some money,’ but not show money.


Dana:

Pre-fight anxiety may have been a factor when Trevin Giles fainted before his bout.

White also said that Joanne Calderwood also fainted following her loss.


Asked about rumors of a McGregor / Manny Pacquiao fight:

“I don’t give a shit about that stuff.”

Veteran referee Marc Goddard will be the third man in the cage when heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic takes on Daniel Cormier in the main event at UFC 252 on Aug. 15 from Vegas.


On Wednesday, the Nevada Athletic Commission voted unanimously on recommendations from executive director Bob Bennett for the officials assigned to oversee the highly anticipated trilogy between Miocic and Cormier.

Goddard, who was recently in the headlines after a fighter shoved him in the cage, served as the referee in the first meetings between the heavyweights; at UFC 226, Cormier finished Miocic to become a two-division UFC champion. Miocic then exacted his revenge at UFC 241 to reclaim the heavyweight title.

As for the judges working the UFC 252 main event, Derek Cleary, Sal D’Amato and Junichiro Kamijo will score the fight. Judges have not been needed for Miocic and Cormier’s previous bouts with both ending in stoppages.


Great picks.

Cleary and Kamijo in particular were very good in June's Apex events.

Khabib Nurmagomedov will not travel to California to train at AKA ahead of UFC 254 due to Covid-19 concerns,

It’s the first time Khabib will skip Cali ahead of a fight since 2012.

Kevin Lee underwent surgery for a torn left ACL three months ago, under the knife again, but this time for his right knee.

Lee damaged his right knee while recovering from his left one, which has resulted in two torn ACLs, extending his time on the shelf considerably.

Lee set a six-month recovery timeline for himself after undergoing surgery in May. But now that he’s injured his other knee, his comeback will have to wait.

The UFC has released Ray Borg (13-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC) from his contract.

The move comes a week after Borg was removed from his bantamweight bout against Nathan Maness at UFC on ESPN+ 31 on the day of the weigh-ins. Reasons for that move were not disclosed by the UFC, but it was the second straight event that Borg missed.

At UFC on ESPN 10 in June, Borg was supposed to fight Merab Dvalishvili. But two days before the event, Borg left Las Vegas and returned home for personal reasons.

Borg’s UFC career has been littered with weight misses at both flyweight and bantamweight. He missed the flyweight mark three separate times – but wound up winning all three of those fights.

Corey Anderson has signed with Bellator.

Anderson, who was not a free agent, recently asked for his UFC release and was granted it. He still had multiple fights left on his deal. Shortly thereafter, he signed with Bellator.
