In the aftermath of Saturday night’s UFC 227 event, UFC president Dana White was forced to address two callouts from both his co-main and main event winners.
First it was Henry Cejudo, who took to his post-fight interview after defeating Demetrious Johnson, and called out the winner of TJ Dillashaw vs. Cody Garbrandt.
That fight was up next, and after Dillashaw defeated Garbrandt Joe Rogan asked him to respond to Cejudo’s challenge. TJ Accepted, and now UFC president Dana White is also on board.
Taking to the official UFC 227 post-fight show on FOX Sports 1, the UFC boss stated, “I love the fact that both these guys are interested in fighting each other… I like that they’re willing to jump division to fight each other. I love it. The fans love it. It’s exciting.”
