UFC president Dana White held a press conference today for UFC 84. During the call White stated fairly convincingly that the winner of the lightweight championship fight between BJ Penn and Sean Sherk at UFC 84 will square off against the winner of Roger Huerta vs. Kenny Florian in a fight to be held at UFC 87. White made the statement while responding to a question about a possible “dream fight” between the winner of the Penn-Sherk fight and Georges St. Pierre.
“I like to see guys clean out a division and there be no doubt who is the best 155-pounder, 170, 185-pounder, etc,” said White. “You find out who the best is because these guys clean out a division. I think the winner…there’s still another fight between Roger Huerta and Kenny Florian. I think the winner of that fight will fight the winner of this fight and let’s say it’s B.J. or Sean (who wins that match-up), I would consider that cleaning out the division. Then I would sit down and talk to them about where they wanted to go from there.”
