Robert Whiteford Calls Out Saul Rogers, But It’s Brendan Loughnane Who Answers The Call
Robert Whiteford defeated Kane Mousah, called out Saul Rogers, but then got called out himself by Brendan Loughnane… this is UK MMA at it’s finest folks.
The Scotsman went the full three rounds with Mousah and just about did enough to get the nod on the judges scorecards.
Speaking backstage to MMANytt after the fight, Whiteford revealed that he was very happy fighting ACB and the with every fight he was moving ever close to obtaining a special goal.
“I’m happy here and I’m going to fight for them again hopefully,” Whiteford said regarding ACB.
“I could fight on the London card or the Sweden card. I’m getting a flat rate from these guy. No show and win, I just turn up and I f***ing fight and it doesn’t matter – I get paid.
“For me my dream is to pay my house off and if they give me enough fights, with the money I’m on I can do that.
“You fight on other shows and you get a show and win bonus, and in two fights you might get cut.”
Whiteford then went on to make the startling revelation that he had spoken to Bellator officials prior to the bout about filling in for Jeremy Petley and facing Saul Rogers on the Bellator 200 fight card in 5 days times.
“Bellator have got a pull out next week and I know Saul Rogers is looking for an opponent,” Whiteford.
“I’d love to step in there and get on that card.
“I was on the phone to Bellator last night and they said if I came out of this unscathed, which I have, I got a black eye and that’s it, I’m good to go.
“Saul Rogers lets do it.”
