Despite beating a UFC new comer at UFC 170, Daniel Cormier debuted in the light heavyweight rankings at sixth. The strong ranking is due to his success in the heavyweight division since joining the UFC roster.
For his next fight, Cormier would either like an immediate title shot, or fight whoever a win over would give him a title shot. Ariel Helwani reported the news on the latest UFC Tonight:
Helwani on who Daniel Cormier wants to fight next: “He wants nothing less than a number-one contender match. He says he’ll be ok fighting the winner of Phil Davis vs. Anthony Johnson. If Jimi Manuwa beats Alexander Gustafsson, he believes he should get the next title fight. He wants number-one contender or title shot right away. ”
