Most people are likely pretty stoked with the news that Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier are fighting at UFC 226, but clearly Alexander Gustafsson isn’t one of those folks…
On Friday, the UFC sent a shockwave throughout the MMA world, by announcing Cormier is moving up to challenge Miocic for the heavyweight belt, July 7th. Following Cormier’s win over Volkan Oezdemir last weekend, however, the expectation was that Gustafsson would be next for the light-heavyweight champ. After all, “The Mauler” is currently ranked #1 in the division, and Gustafsson narrowly lost to Cormier by split decision, in 2015.
Well, clearly, that’s not going to be the case, and as a result, the Swedish star posted this:
“@dc_mma is fighting stipe?!
Well stop run and fight me!
Don’t even think about giving the fight to anyone else!
I have been quite, had a tough time after my last fight (injury etc.) but I’m next in line and the dc fight is mine!
Come on, let’s have a another dance for the fans! @ufc”
