The latest on the Light Heavyweight Title drama…
- Daniel Cormier wants a UFC Light Heavyweight Title, and wants it so bad that he would be willing to put off knee surgery he reportedly needs. Cormier suffered an injured lateral collateral ligament 10-days before his UFC 173 victory over Dan Henderson. The UFC wants champion Jon Jones to face Alexander Gustafsson in a rematch in late August, but Jones would rather face the undefeated Cormier.
On UFC Tonight, it was reported that Cormier said he's willing to put off a planned knee surgery if it means competing for a championship. That includes a title bout with Jones, or the recently rumored Interim Title bout with Gustafsson. The interim bout has been discussed in the event that talks between the UFC and Jones break down. Gustafsson's camp is also open to the interim title bout.
