Video: Robbie Lawler, Sean Shelby prank Dana White about UFC main-event cancellation
So you’re head of the world’s largest MMA promotion, and 24 hours before a major event on network television, you learn that one of your headliners won’t fight because his opponent failed to make weight. Stressful day for UFC President Dana White, eh? Luckily for the UFC boss, it turned out to be a mean (but pretty funny) prank played by UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby and UFC on FOX 12 headliner Robbie Lawler.

UFC signs Olympic Gold medalist Henry Cejudo, set to face Scott Jorgensen
The UFC has been home to several Olympians over the years, including medalists Ronda Rousey, Sara McMann, Yoel Romero, and Matt Lindland. But the only Olympic Gold medalists to compete in the Octagon thus far have been 1992 Gold winner in freestyle wrestling Kevin Jackson, and fellow wrestler Mark Schultz, who scored Gold in 1984. That is until today, as the 2008 United States Olympic Gold medal winner in freestyle wrestling, Henry Cejudo, has been signed to a promotional contract that will start with his UFC 177 flyweight bout against Scott Jorgensen on August 30 in Sacramento. “It feels good to be part of the UFC family finally,” said the 27-year-old Cejudo. Cejudo was a highly decorated amateur wrestler, foregoing the traditional college route to train with Team USA in Colorado Springs, and in 2008, he became the youngest American wrestler to win Gold in the Olympics when he defeated Japan’s Tomohiro Matsunaga in Beijing. After missing out on the 2012 Games, Phoenix’ Cejudo transitioned to mixed martial arts, making his pro debut in March of 2013 with an 85-second finish of Michael Poe.
