    DC has no one left to fight at LHW other than a rematch with Gus.

    Stipe has cleaned out HW as well other than rematches with guys he knocked out.

    No reason not to at this point.

    DC is the best HW on the planet. You'll see. You will all see!

    Also, dumb thread.

    ? Why?

    Stipe is the undisputed HW champ, DC is the LHW champ and nearly 40. DC clearly wants a legacy making fight and this fight has huge upside (and no downside). Both guys will get PPV points and this fight will sell like hotcakes.

    Cormier is 13-0 as a heavyweight and 7-1-1 as a LHW.

    Who could he fight who he hasn't already beaten at the top of the LHW ladder?


    Champion : Daniel Cormier
    1 Alexander Gustafsson (Beat him)

    2 Volkan Oezdemir (Beat him)


    I'd say Gus needs another fight before he earns another shot at the title. So instead of waiting on him, DC is going to get paid to try and become another Champ Champ.

    if stipe wins people will discredit it as a win over a paper champ in a weight class below

    Because UFC fucked up HW and LHW divisions.
    They are so shallow, that the only attractive fight is pinning champion against champion.

    Because there is no number 1 contender at heavyweight and DC is a legit LHW champion no matter what anyone says

    No, he's the 205 champion, and on a 5-fight win streak.
    His last fight was a title defense against Volkan Oezdemir.

    The Jon Jones loss happened in last July. And it was overturned.

    Because the LHW and HW divisions are absolute garbage and the UFC is run by cheap fucks.


    It should be interesting in like 3 years when the entire LHW/HW divisions have retired.
