    UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is currently chasing history by becoming the second fighter on the roster to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously. He aims to do this by dethroning heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, whom he faces at UFC 226.

    “DC” did previously announce that he does not plan on further extending his career past the age of 40, which happens on March 20th of the coming year. With that in mind, he plans to keep himself as active as possible, as he angles for a possible fight against Brock Lesnar.

    I loved JJ so much but he let me down with all the drugs. I live in DC's city now and feel bad that he was given the belt out of the octagon rather than all the glory of Unk Dana strapping it around his waist. DC all the way.

    I don't know when we'll be seeing this fight if ever, but I'll be rooting for DC all the way.

    Daniel (and everyone else) needs to leave Jon behind. He has done nothing but take from the sport. Let him fade into obscurity.

    A 3rd fight would need to be at HW. By the looks of DC, he may never see 205 again.

    Near retirement. Looking for a paycheck. But at least he defends his fake belt unlike a certain Irish guy.

    Why the fuck couldn't Jon just layed off the gear? I'm still so salty about that. DC's a really good guy, undoubtedly, but JJ was my guy fight wise, I loved watching him fight.
