UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier is challenging UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic for the belt at UFC 226.
Light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson isn’t too happy about the upcoming super fight, which led to a Twitter exchange between Gustafsson and DC, starting with Gustafsson taking a shot at the champion:
Dc u talk about the blachowicz fight?! What about when “someone” predicted the left kick and still u fell for it..— Alexander Gustafsson (@AlexTheMauler) January 31, 2018
That would lead to a response from DC:
Damn alex, like that? Too late bud, this the shit you should have been saying before the fight was made. Now chill before I beat ur face in again pretty boy! https://t.co/Okm0hEW6qt— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) January 31, 2018
It would come to an end when Gustafsson predicted he would be DC’s opponent in the champ’s retirement bout:
U r the one talking fights here! I’m gonna be ur retirement fight not Stipe I’ll wait.. can’t wait to take u down again.. and again..— Alexander Gustafsson (@AlexTheMauler) January 31, 2018
DC defeated Gustafsson in their only encounter thus far at UFC 192 and that win came by way of decision.
UFC 226 takes place on Saturday, July 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
