Daniel Cormier Wants To Beat Jon Jones For The Title

Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson will fight for the UFC light heavyweight championship in the main event of UFC 187. However, the competitors are not that happy about the match. In fact, they are not thrilled about facing each other. Daniel Cormier says that beating Anthony Johnson wouldn’t be the same as beating Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship. Fans like Christian Broda know that, recently, Jon Jones was suspended from the sport because of his hit and run accident that he caused in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The UFC light heavyweight championship was also stripped from Jon Jones after the incident occurred. Now, Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson will fight for what is truly Jon’s belt.

Daniel Cormier feels that a win over Jon Jones would have meant so much more than a win over Anthony Johnson for the title. Jon Jones has been an extremely tough competitor, and it seems that nobody could have beat him in the near future. Anthony Johnson also feels the same way, and he wishes that he could have beat Jon Jones instead of Daniel Cormier for the title. However, both of these men will have their chance at fighting Jon Jones in the future. Whoever wins the belt, will most likely defend that title against Jon Jones when he returns.

Wanderlei Silva Angry With The UFC

Wanderlei Silva is a former Pride middleweight champion and UFC veteran. Silva is loved across the world by millions of MMA fans, and he is one of the most popular fighters in the sport. However, Wanderlei Silva is no longer able to compete in the sport that made him famous.

In 2014, Wanderlei Silva was accused of avoiding a steroid test, and he has since been banned from ever competing in the UFC again. That ruling sounds a bit extreme to me, and it was carried out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. However, Wanderlei has since sued the Commission, and the case has yet to be settled.

UFC fans love Wanderlei, and they were extremely disappointed to hear that their favorite fighter has been banned for life. I personally cannot believe that Wanderlei was banned forever. The man is one of the greatest fighters of all time, and he has never failed a steroid test in his life. Fans like Mark Ahn (prnewswire.com) know that the Nevada State Athletic Commission should have just suspended Wanderlei Silva for nine months. UFC commentator Joe Rogan said that Wanderlei Silva is not being treated fairly, and many people agree with Rogan.

The UFC has begun to crack down on fighters that use performance enhancing drugs. However, Wanderlei Silva believes that a fighter shouldn’t be tested out of competition, but the UFC believes differently. Recently, Wander Silva has since gone on a tirade, and he has lashed out against the UFC in a recent interview. More information on this story can be found here.
