T.J. Dillashaw questions the legitimacy of Cody Garbrandt’s back injury
At the beginning of this year, the UFC announced that bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt would be defending his belt against former champion and training partner T.J. Dillashaw. It was to be a good, old-fashioned grudge match and the UFC built its most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter around the beef between the coaches, leading up to their title fight at UFC 213 this summer.

NAC approves Mayweather Promotions for Aug. 26, still unclear if it’s Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor
The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) approved an Aug. 26 date in Las Vegas for Mayweather Promotions in a meeting Wednesday. But the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is not officially attached to it — at least for now. NAC executive director Bob Bennett told MMA Fighting that Mayweather Promotions applied for the Aug. 26 date for a boxing card at MGM Grand, which will air on Showtime, last week. Mayweather officials then pulled that application earlier this week before asking for it to be put back on Tuesday night, Bennett said.

Bellator chief Scott Coker: Mike Goldberg, new broadcast team offer 'different experience'
It’s nearly impossible to escape Mike Golberg’s voice if you’re watching a UFC promo. As the fight organization’s play-by-play commentator for 20 years, there’s hardly a big fight that doesn’t have his stamp. Goldberg’s signature call – “It is all over!” – is indelibly linked to the industry-leader. So when he lends his commentary to Bellator’s second pay-per-view effort, Bellator NYC, it’s not a stretch to say some of the more casual fans of MMA might be confused. But according to Bellator chief Scott Coker, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Dana White responds to DJ, says McGregor is the pound-for-pound best
UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson made a stand this week against the organization, and now UFC president Dana White has fired back. Johnson, the current No. 1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter on the UFC’s official rankings, released an explosive, lengthy statement Monday in which the flyweight champion accused the UFC of widespread “mistreatment and bullying” and criticized the promotion for a variety of issues, ranging from White’s negotiating tactics for Johnson’s next fight — a bout that could see Johnson break the all-time record for consecutive title defenses set by Anderson Silva — to the UFC’s handling of the flyweight division altogether. Johnson then elaborated on those issues in a wide-ranging interview Monday on The MMA Hour.
