During his appearance on the MMA Hour, Gastelum said that he did not know where those comments came from.

“I was dumbfounded. Because I don’t know where those comments are coming from. I just figured he was upset over me not taking the fight a day-and-a-half before. My manager was negotiating money to get from that. I wasn’t gonna be doing it for free. That fell through. So they told me that’s not happening,” Gastelum told.

UFC decided to go with Yoel Romero in the end and the fight between Romero and Robert Whittaker turned out to be one to remember as well. Nevertheless, it would be interesting to see how Gastelum deals with the newfound grudge that Dana White has with him.
