Daniel Pineda vs. Robert Whiteford @ UFC 171

http://forum.mmajunkie.com/forum/thr...ufc-171.60713/

UFC News tweeted the news of this match-up, and I can't help but notice that Whiteford didn't make the London card when it's only a week earlier..

To me, Mike Wilkinson vs. Rob Whiteford in London would have been a better match-up.

Also, Daniel Pineda & Johnny Bedford are both Texas based fighters who fought twice earlier in their careers, in small-time Texas orgs. They each have a submission victory over the other, & would have been cool to see the rubber match at a UFC Texas event, with them each coming off losses now.

Oh well.

Whiteford didn't look that bad against Hettes, but Pineda should win this.

Bedford is at BW now, doubt he would have went up a division to make that third fight happen.

But ya strange its not happening in London seeing as there is still some room on thar card.

My bad, forgot he dropped down.. good call

I still confuse some of the lower-tier, lighter-weight fighters from time to time
