Daniel Cormier Takes a Big Crap on Alexander Gustafsson’s Title Hopes

Poor Alexander Gustafsson. In his struggle to remain relevant in a division where he’s always been the number two- or number three-ranked guy, he’s been challenging anyone and everyone, calling out any fighter who a victory over might give him some shine.

I mean, you can’t fault Gustafsson for trying. He’s just trying to find work and get paid.

Unfortunately, one person has taken umbrage at Gustafsson’s efforts. And that person owns both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight belts.

So here’s Daniel Cormier taking a big crap on the Swede’s title hopes.

Dear Alex, I don’t know what happened to you going back to the Rockhold situation. You have always been a stand up guy but your behavior changed. From calling a guy out the day after he got knocked out, to now offering to fight me knowing I have a broken hand, after Volkan couldn’t go. Now you’ve turned down Jan, turned down Khalil all while calling for a heavyweight title fight. Now, moments after Anthony Smith does his work like an animal you decide you’re hurt. Man, I respect you as a fighter. I will always be grateful for October 2015, but you and I won’t share the octagon again. I am disappointed in who you’ve become. You are so entitled, man, I can’t deal with delusional people. Good luck recovering. Our time has passed. See you from the commentary table. DC @alexthemauler #wegoourseparateways

At long last, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has found an opponent for Alexander Gustafsson.

Fired up Alexander Gustafsson Has Made Some Interesting Bout Proposals…

(This post originally appeared on MMAFrenzy.)

Alexander Gustafsson is still looking for his next fight, and the perennial, light-heavyweight contender has made some pretty interesting proposals on that front…

Gustafsson hasn’t fought now since May, 2017, when he took out Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 109. “The Mauler” believed the win, and his #1 ranking would deliver him a rematch with the champ, Daniel Cormier. But, then the UFC dropped jaws throughout the sport by announcing Cormier will fight heavyweight champ, Stipe Miocic, on July 7th. That didn’t sit too well with the Swedish star.

Well, more recently Gustafsson has offered to welcome Luke Rockhold to the light-heavyweight division. But, following Yoel Romero’s failure to make weight for UFC 225, Dana White’s comments that the middleweight should move to 205, and Cormier’s  call for Gustafsson to fight Romero, “The Mauler” shared out this:

Now, of course, everyone and their dog would like to see Gustafsson fight Romero. But, so far, it doesn’t sound like the Cuban wrestler plans to leave middleweight behind. 

Gustafsson’s offer to step in for either Cormier or Miocic at UFC 226 is also, pretty, pretty interesting. If Cormier went down with an injury, one would think the UFC would tap another heavyweight contender to fight Miocic. But, if the heavyweight champ was sidelined, would the UFC have Gustafsson fight Cormier again? In a rematch at heavyweight?

Oezdemir is scheduled to fight “Shogun” on July 22th, so, if either one of those guys goes down, then Gustafsson would be an obvious option. All this aside, hopefully we see Gustafsson back in the cage, sooner than later.
