On Tuesday's episode of UFC Tonight, Ariel Helwani related Wineland's response to the situation:
He said it's crushing to him. He said it's like dangling a piece of cake in front of fat kid for months, and then not letting him eat it. He wants to wait for Barao if it doesn't take too long for him to recover from the injury. But, I talked to current champ Dominick Cruz and his recovery is going well. He's hoping to come back before the end of the year. Then he'd get fight Barao, instead of Wineland.
