Dana On Mayhem - Hall Scuffle, Tito Ortiz Injury Update, Two Titles Fights Set For Super Bowl Show
According to White's response to one inquiring fan on Twitter, that will hardly be the case. When asked if Hall would be pulled from his planned UFC 168 bout with Chris Leben or suffer any other kind of discipline, White responded, "f*** no!!!I'm gonna give him a bonus!!!"
Aside from Miller's downward spiral bringing negative attention to the sport, the eccentric fighter has had a rocky past with his former boss. Those factors together obviously leave no love lost between he and White. You can check out a video from last year of White discussing his Twitter war with Miller.
Ortiz suffered a neck injury that forced him out of a planned Bellator pay-per-view bout against fellow former UFC champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, but the 38-year old is determined to recover and get back in the cage.
"Ppl I will have 100% recovery & will be back n the gym in 6 weeks," Ortiz posted. "I'm a fighter & I love competition. I was doing great n training but accident do happen. Just time to reshuffle the deck & deal another hand.#positiveminded"
Tito also passed along his doctor's prognosis.
"CT scan showed a right C6 pillar fracture. By going through a high impact fight as he is scheduled for would put him at high risk for a spinal cord injury. It does appear that he is going to go onto full and complete healing 6-8 weeks. -Dr. William Smith, M.D."
Featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo will be taking on Ricardo Lamas, while bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz will be returning from a long injury layoff to battle dominant interim champ Renan Barao.
The card will also sport a heavyweight tilt between Frank Mir and Alistair Overeem.
