UFC on ESPN 3, a.k.a. UFC on ESPN: Ngannou vs. Dos Santos is finally in the books now and it is safe to say that it turned out to be just as advertised. The main and co-main events of this event particularly turned out to be extremely enthralling with both these fights ending in great TKO finishes. Winners of both these fights, Francis Ngannou and Joseph Benavidez are now finding themselves to be the top ranked contender in their respective divisions and want to challenge for the title next. However, the UFC President Dana White has refused to agree to give them title shots next.

In a recent interview, White explained that he cannot agree right now that both Ngannou and Benavidez will surely fight for the belt next because he still has to wait and see how the rematch between DC and Stipe plays out. As for Benavidez, his title shot depends on Henry Cejudo’s wishes and which belt he wants to defend first. Here’s what he had to say:

This fight has to play out first. Stipe and Cormier has to play out, who wins, how they come out of that fight, what does Cormier want to do next if he wins, so there’s a lot of things that play into what’s next. It’s not as easy as ‘I won tonight, I’m next for the fight’ and we know this. I go through this every single time there’s a fight.

It’s definitely not good for Benavidez, He’s going to be in this waiting period but I know that Cejudo came out and said he wants to defend that [flyweight] belt first. Benavidez looked good tonight. He got busted up in that first round, got two really bad cuts in really bad places. He didn’t let it get into his head and didn’t it throw his game off. Landing that nice head kick.
