On Saturday night many felt that Magomed Ankalaev was robbed of a UFC title when the judges declared his fight with Jan Blachowicz a draw.
And when Joe Rogan spoke with Ankalaev after the fight he had some choice words about it. In fact, he said, due to the result he may never fight in the UFC again.
And Dana White wasn’t happy about it. Just minutes after his statements were made, White rebooked the title fight but left Ankalaev out of the mix.
Now Ankalaev is claiming the translation of his comments was wrong.
Following the fight White announced that former champion Glover Teixeira will fight Jamahal Hill in the UFFC 283 main event in Rio de Janeiro on Jan. 21, leaving Anthony Smith, who was meant to fight Hill in March without an opponent.
