Dana White on UFC 168’s Bobby Voelker: ‘He’s 0-3, and he’s not going anywhere’
Bobby Voelker hasn’t won a fight in 27 months, and he’s winless in three UFC tries. But for now, his job is secure. At Saturday’s UFC 168 event, Voelker (24-11 MMA, 0-3 UFC) fought through a leaky nose, blood-splattered eyes and a storm of fists from fellow welterweight William Macario (7-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) to hang on for three rounds. He suffered a lopsided decision loss via 30-27 scores, but it seemed a footnote to otherwise gritty performance.

Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC?
LAS VEGAS – With the biggest fight of the year going down on Saturday night at UFC 168, one of the UFC’s biggest draws might be cageside to view it. This week there were rumors that heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar would attend Saturday night’s rematch between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman. Exactly why Lesnar is coming to Las Vegas for the fight has become a thing of speculation, but as usual people are beginning to whisper that maybe the UFC has something up its sleeve. During Thursday’s post-press conference media scrum, UFC president Dana White was asked point blank if the UFC would take the opportunity to talk business with Lesnar. "I honestly don’t know," he said, repressing a grin like a man who just might know more than he wanted to say. "Honestly?" somebody goaded. "Honestly," White said, "I don’t know."
