UFC Fight Night 101 will no longer feature a pivotal middleweight scrap between Luke Rockhold and “Jacare” Souza, but it will see two other top 185’ers throw down.
In today’s new main event (Rockhold had to withdraw due to injury), Derek Brunson will take on fellow contender Robert Whittaker. Both men have won five straight, and the winner of today’s bout could very well land a fight with a top five ranked 185’er next.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features Joe Rogan previewing the interesting fight.
UFC FN 101 will take place in Melbourne, Australia.
