"So (expletive) far from being the truth," said White, in an interview with MMAjunkie.com.

Cerrone (19-4-1) and Pettis (15-2) have been waging a verbal war in the past few weeks. Cerrone cemented his place in the 155-pound division with a victory over Melvin Guillard recently.

Pettis, meanwhile, continues to recover from shoulder surgery. He has mentioned late fall as a likely return timetable for him.
