UFC President Dana White joined Katie Nolan of FOX Sports today to break the news that Luke Rockhold would give an immediate rematch to Chris Weidman at UFC 199. Rockhold (13-1) dethroned Weidman (15-2) in their last bout via TKO at UFC 194 in Decemeber to become the new UFC middleweight champion.

This fight was really easy to make once Yoel Romero got into trouble with the USADA. I’m much for immediate rematches, but I wouldn’t mind seeing this one given the state of the middleweight division.
