“I do (still want to make Makhachev vs. Dariush), but Joe Rogan just grabbed me in the hallway and told me not to,” White said during the UFC 274 post-fight news conference.
“Who doesn’t think Dariush and Islam is a great fight? It’s a f*cking killer fight,” White said. “I would love to see that fight to see who the No. 1 contender is, but I’m not gonna lie, after tonight I wouldn’t mind doing Islam vs. Oliveira, either. We’ll see what happens.”
