    As soon as Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson have the cage door slammed behind them at UFC 232 on Dec. 29, 2018, Daniel Cormier will no longer be the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) “champ-champ,” as the promotion will strip “DC” of his light heavyweight title and reward it to the victor.

    It’s a move that doesn’t sit too well with “DC,” but he understands the promotion must move on and allow someone else to take over the throne since he is currently holding on to the heavyweight title, as well

    After knocking Stipe Miocic out earlier this year, “DC” had every intention to defend both belts before he retired. But since a bum hand forced him to the sidelines, the window of opportunity closed.

    Still, he will technically be the first fighter to go into a fight as an official “champ-champ” when he defends his 265-pound belt against Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 on Nov. 3, 2018. As for the upcoming rematch between Jones and Gustafsson, “DC” says its an easy fight to pick.

    I don't really understand DC's criticism of Gus "struggling in the big moments".

    0-2 in title fights, failed to close both fights which could have gone either way.

    DC is salty. Of course he doesn't want Gus to be the first person to beat his biggest enemy.

    Perhaps this time Guss will fight above his level and get KTFO into a LHW champion.

    USADA bless big moments.

    It's good he's getting stripped of the LHW belt. He wants the Bork fight eventually and you can't hold two divisions hostage. Keeps the belts open and both of Cormier-Lewis and Jones-Gus are fun fights.

    Unpopular Opinion: I fucking hate the UFC for stripping their dual champions. It's even worse when you have people with fake bullshit fucking interim belts walking around like that dumbfuck who tore his ACL while wearing sunglasses indoors.

    DC knows in his heart, no one is beating Jones including himself

    Edit: only USADA
