Times of India reports that Daniel Cormier recently won the UFC light heavyweight championship, but some UFC fans believe that Daniel Cormier is not the true champion. Nonetheless, it seems that Daniel Cormier will defend his championship belt against Alexander Gustafsson later this year. UFC fans were extremely surprised with the announcement of this fight, and many people think that Dana White has lost his mind. Why should Alexander Gustafsson get the next title shot? Isn’t there someone else that could have faced Daniel Cormier next?
Dana White believes that Alexander Gustafsson is the number one contender for the championship, but we should remember that Gustafsson was just knocked out by Anthony Johnson. The matchup between Cormier and Gustafsson could prove to be exciting, but it just doesn’t make sense. I would much rather see Daniel Cormier versus Ryan Bader. Some fans are wondering why a matchup between Bader and Cormier would be interesting, but there is a ton of bad blood between Ryan Bader and Daniel Cormier. Why not get some good money out of Daniel Cormier vs Ryan Bader? Then, the UFC could place Alexander Gustafsson versus the winner. Yahoo! Sports recently published an article about this story, and much more information about the fight can be found there.
