Guess who's back... Back Again... Yair is back...

It appears featherweight contender Yair Rodriguez and UFC officials have patched up a seemingly broken relationship.

This past month, UFC officials released Rodriguez (10-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC), who’s No. 15 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA featherweight rankings, after UFC President Dana White said he turned down a fight with Zabit Magomedsharipov (15-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC 227.

Now, though, Rodriguez and UFC officials have apparently mended fences – and the fight is back on for UFC 228, according to ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto (via Twitter).

MMAjunkie could not immediately confirm the plans, and UFC officials haven’t made a formal announcement. However, when reached by MMAjunkie, Magomedsharipov’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, suggested the fight is likely to proceed.

“I don’t know if this is true, but if it is, I’m happy for Yair to get back where he deserves to be,” Abdelaziz said. “Zabit will fight anyone. It doesn’t matter.”

UFC 228 is expected to take place Sept. 8, possibly in Las Vegas, though officials haven’t formally announced the pay-per-view event.

The release of Rodriguez, a 25-year-old Mexican fighter who went 6-0 in the UFC before a TKO defeat to ex-champ Frankie Edgar at UFC 211, came as a surprise.


Didn't feel like doing the tweet shit, but the link is there if you want to see it.

LOL the UFC is still searching for it's Mexican star since Sea Level Cain messed it up for them. Still don't know why they are feeding Yair to the wolves though.
