Other sites are reporting the fight is happening. Guess the UFC jumped the gun again.

Turns down fight cause he has a fever a month out.
Shit. I don't know what to say about that.

Sounds like ducking a guy to me

Hopefully Peralta still gets an opponent for that card. That dude is a force!

Normally I would agree but he also tweeted to Peralta saying he'd gladly do it at a later event if the UFC would allow it.

I dont blame Corassani, Peralta will smash him in to pieces if he doesn't show up at 100%.

No shit! There has been a movement towards your whispers lately...Corassani is more talk than performance to me, I think Peralta is a easy early favorite here.

If this does get made I've got Peralta all day. I don't have much faith in Corassani and I thought he clearly lost his last fight.

Corassani has bad cardio..a Peralta finish would highly be likely..
