It appears featherweight contender Yair Rodriguez and UFC officials have patched up a seemingly broken relationship.

This past month, UFC officials released Rodriguez (10-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC), who’s No. 15 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA featherweight rankings, after UFC President Dana White said he turned down a fight with Zabit Magomedsharipov (15-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC 227.

Now, though, Rodriguez and UFC officials have apparently mended fences – and the fight is back on for UFC 228, according to ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto

What a match up ! Glad Yair has come back. This is a battle between two of the more extravagant strikers/kickers of the division. I think Zabit is too well rounded for Yair...still should be a great fight

Glad to see them work this out. Too bad it never landed on UFC 227 like it was supposed to, that card is still hurting.

Can't wait for this fight. Should be fireworks and a huge step in the right direction providing Zabit wins.
