White elaborated on his idea on Saturday night following UFC Nashville. This is where he hinted at his plans by throwing out Cejudo vs. Moraes for the title with Jussier Formiga and Joseph Benavidez serving as a backup in case either fighter can’t make the fight.
“They both want that fight really bad,” White told MMAJunkie. “It seems like a good fight to make with the whole Dillashaw thing now, and then you do (Formiga) versus Benavidez on the same card – anything goes wrong, one of them can step up and take the fight, and then the winner of that fight is the guaranteed No. 1 contender for the next (flyweight) shot.”
