- Light Heavyweight Title contender Daniel Cormier is looking for a title shot. The UFC has been targeting a rematch between Champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. The two battled in a great fight at UFC 165, where Jones retained via decision. Alexander Gustafsson has signed the bout agreement, but Jones is currently negotiating a new deal with the UFC. Cormier has decided to stir the pot, making a new proposal…
"I know this will probably be unpopular. But if [Jones] won't sign, whether it be for money or a lack of wanting to fight the kid, I'll fight Alexander Gustafsson. But it should be for the interim title."
