    Who if anyone should he fight?

    Im not sure DC, Rashad or Rumble would be good move to sustain his high ranking.

    Should he try to avenge his loss against Phil Davis?

    He shouldn't fight until he fights Jones again.

    No its the worst answer possible. What if Jones fights Cormier and it ends weird so the UFC does a rematch? what if that leads to a rubber match? Are you really thinking it would be good for Gus to sit out for a year or more?

    Daniel has had 2 lackluster fights at 205, he hasn't exactly earned his title shot. As for Gus, he deserves his rematch. He won that damn fight and that's his title as far as I'm concerned.

    Easier said then done. It would be a huge risk for Gus.

    Gus should fight Rumble if lil Nog gets hurt...UFC will need a quick replacement and I dont think Rashad will be ready...plus hes training partners with Davis so that wont happen

    Only other option may be Fejau/Bader winner on a quick turnaround.

    Wtf is this shit? Jones is a fighter, not a matchmaker. Gus was announced as the number one contender by ufc brass, so he's who the champion needs to defend his belt against. Even in boxing champions don't get to choose their opponents. If they refuse to fight whoever the org wants them to fight, they get their belt stripped.

    Champions shouldn't have the privilege top choose their opponents.

    There is no such thing as only having 1 contender, there are in fact many contenders and it's absolutely Jones or any champions right to negotiate which of the many contenders he faces next.

    So you can keep bringing up your fake meaningless title, but that doesn't give him more power of the man with a REAL title.

    Gus should move up to HW, where he belongs.

    He's way too big for LHW.

    Even though they may not have been top competition a one minute ko of cummins and a complete domination of Dan Henderson is hardly lacklustre.

    because beating Cormier is far from a certainty for anyone. It would be a stupid gamble since he's going to get the next title fight, Dana is not going to back down on this one.

    I'd completely agree if his fight with Dan had been years ago. Not when he's wearing out. He's 40 and 1-4 in his last 5 fights.
