Speaking at the UFC 123 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White hinted he's not interested in setting up the Rampage vs Machida rematch. White revealed he thought Rampage won Rounds 1 and 2, giving Lyoto Machida the final 5 minutes in the fight: “I thought Rampage won rounds one and two, Machida won the third,” said White, also expressing his disappointment with Jackson's post-fight "shocked" mimics.
Also, White declared that the German kickboxer Dennis Siver is next in line for George Sotiropoulos. The Greek/Australian will return to action at UFC 127 in Australia, where he will be looking to secure a title shot against the crafty German veteran. Sotiropoulos is currently 7-0 in the UFC, after defeating the top-ranked Lightweights Joe Lauzon, Kurt Pellegrino and Joe Stevenson.
UFC President Dana White confirmed that BJ Penn will square off against Jon Fitch at the main event of UFC 127 in Australia. The event will take place at the Acer Arena in Sydney. Winner of this fight is expected to fight the winner of UFC 124 bout between Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck for the UFC Welterweight title.
