UFC president Dana White announced that with middleweight champion Michael Bisping sidelined with a knee injury of his own, Yoel Romero will fight Robert Whittaker for the interim middleweight belt in the co-main event.

Last night (May 23, 2017), ESPN's Brett Okamoto reported that bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt, who's been dealing with back issues, was officially off UFC 213 and that his scheduled fight with ex-titleholder and bitter rival TJ Dillashaw had been scrapped. The card also has its first official main event as a women's bantamweight championship bout between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko was bumped atop the marquee.

White told ESPN.com he made a decision to create an interim 185-pound title after speaking to the division's current champion, Michael Bisping, on Tuesday. Earlier this month, the UFC sent the 25-year-old champion to a stem cell specialist in Germany and had hoped he would be able to remain on the card. Dillashaw has won twice since and built anticipation for the Garbrandt bout by coaching against him in this season's "The Ultimate Fighter" reality television series. "That would have put him two weeks out from the fight".

T.J. Dillashaw reportedly has a new opponent after his match with Cody Garbrandt was scratched.

Ajax ready to take on Manchester United in Europa League final
The 19-year-old, who was born in Amsterdam , left Ajax's academy to join United in 2014. The Holland Under 21 global said: 'I'm still young and I'm still learning a lot.

Dillashaw, the former bantamweight champ, is now likely to drop to flyweight to challenge Demetrious Johnson for the title in August.

Borg believes he is the No. 1 contender, and so do many others.

"The Soldier Of God" certainly deserves a chance to fight for the strap one way or another as he's amassed an eight-fight winning streak in the division that includes big victories over stars like Chris Weidman, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, Lyoto Machida and Tim Kennedy.
