In an interview with ESPN, UFC president Dana White said that due to an injury to UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, it’s possible that Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker could fight for an interim belt. Here are highlights:

On a possible interim title fight: “We’re trying to put together that Bisping-Romero fight. If (Bisping) can’t fight this summer, we’ll probably create an interim title between Romero and Robert Whittaker.”

On Georges St-Pierre returning to the welterweight division: “[St-Pierre] says he will fight whoever the 170-pound champion is when he comes back.”
