CABMMA official: ‘We can’t change the result’ of Drew Dober vs. Leandro Silva
(mmafighting.com)
Drew Dober is planning on appealing his UFC Fight Night 62 loss against Leandro Silva, but it’s unlikely that he will have any success in the process. Dober lost via submission in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night, even though he neither tapped nor lost consciousness as "Buscape" applied a guillotine. Still, referee Eduardo Herdy stepped in and called the fight over. And even though it was a blatant misjudgment, his bizarre mistake might not be enough for Dober to get the result overturned to a no-contest, according to Cristiano Sampaio, COO of the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA).

Meisha Tate-Jessica Eye Title Eliminator Bout Targeted For UFC Event In June
(m.sherdog.com)
UFC President Dana White revealed during a Friday press conference that a 135-pound showdown between Miesha Tate and Jessica Eye has been targeted for an as-yet-to-be determined event in June. The winner of that bout is expected to receive the next bantamweight title shot, assuming Rousey beats Correia on Aug. 1. side note: why is Meisha even getting another shot, yes I understand she was the only person to make it pass round 2 and into round 3..but the face remains, she still got finished in both fights..not interested in this match at all..and IMHO, Eye doesn't deserve a title shot, she's just another person to boost Ronda highlight reel
