Jolldan Posted July 30, 2018 Report Share Posted July 30, 2018 https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/daniel-cormier/daniel-cormier-confirms-hell-defend-light-heavyweight-title-this-year-has-three-opponents-in-mind/ Daniel Cormier, who now owns the UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight titles, is expected to defend his heavyweight belt against monstrous former champion Brock Lesnar sometime early in the new year. As it turns out, however, Cormier plans to defend his light heavyweight title first — before the year is out. “Yes, I am,” Cormier confirmed in a behind the scenes video on UFC on FOX (via MMA Fighting). “As long as they don’t f*ck up my Lesnar fight.” When it comes to potential opponents for his next light heavyweight title defense, Cormier seems to have three opponents in mind: Corey Anderson, Ilir Latifi, and Anthony Smith. From the sounds it, he’s up for fighting any one of these men, and he will leave it to them to sort out who’s next. “When and where, Corey Anderson,” Cormier told his FOX broadcast partner Michael Bisping on the video. “When and where, [ilir] Latifi. When and where, Anthony Smith. When and where, all of them. All of them at some point this year.” “Take a piece of steak, put it in the Octagon,” Cormier added. “Whoever wins gets the title fight. Let’s do it like that.” So who would you like to see Daniel Cormier fight most out of those three? Corey Anderson? Ilir Latifi? Anthony Smith? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
