    Daniel Cormier may defend his light heavyweight title before squaring off with Brock Lesnar.

    The two-division UFC champion, who knocked out Stipe Miocic to capture the heavyweight belt at UFC 226 last weekend, told Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on Monday that he would be open to a 205-pound bout against Mauricio Rua first.

    Because of his one-year USADA suspension from 2016 that froze once he left the drug-testing pool, Lesnar won’t be eligible to return to the UFC until early next year. Meanwhile, Cormier wants to get a fight in before then. “DC” said after beating Miocic he only wants big fights moving forward, and facing former…

    If shogun beats Smith and is on a 4 fight win streak I have no issue with a legend getting one final shot.

    I don’t know
    Gus is 2-2 in the last 3 1/2 years. Yes he’s won 2 in a row but the last was 14 months ago.

    is it cuz Jon Jones won the LHW belt off of SHogun?

    DC wants to close out the division by beating Shogun for the last time?

    I don't know the logic behind but I support this call out

    Completely beneath DC whether Shogun is a legend or not.

    gus is about as good as it gets at LHW, definitely above "a name to help put over Anthony Smith" - which is apparently how WME sees Shogun.

    The fact DC is talking about actively getting back in there makes him once again a top fighter. So many fighters would be banging on about waiting for a money fight or wanting to not fight an interim champ over a contender or some shit.

    He at least wants to get back in there and lose that ridiculous belly which might be tough work.

    Now... Shogun. Let's calm the fuck down though DC yea.

    I'm pretty confident Shogun/Smith vs. Gus/Volkan will determine the new champ. Dana don't like champ champs.

    DC must be building an island lair or something else that requires big bucks. Maybe buying his own country where saying the name Jon Jones lands you jail time.

    Actually. it looks like he's accepted he'll never get to beat JJ and has just decided to make as much bank as he can in his final year. Good for the fat little fucker, he's earned the opportunity. ;)
