DFW: Cormier fights winner of Gustafsson vs. champ

Monday, March 10, 2014

According to UFC president Dana White, the light heavyweight title bouts are set for a ways out.

At the UFN 37 media scrum on Saturday, White confirmed that Alexander Gustafsson would get the winner of champion Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April.

Now White says that the winner of that fight will face Daniel Cormier.

Yeah i know, that was a fill in fighter..i get it. We just wanna see him vs a real UFC top 205er. Top 5 guy..you'll get it done

Dana White @danawhite
u will see him against the winner of Jones/Glover vs Gus

That fight is likely pushing into 2015, and Cormier is saying he wants to fight in the meantime, and that the winner of Phil Davis vs. Anthony Johnson would do. Davis vs. Johnson co-headlines UFC 172.
