Daniel Cormier Says Gustafsson Is Golden Ticket At Another Title Shot

Earlier this year Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones finally faced off at UFC 182 which left Jones with a win over Cormier, making many wonder what Cormier’s next move will be.

Well, this past weekend Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson fought in Stockholm, with Johnson picking up a quick TKO win, and earning a title shot against Jones.

Cormier sees the chance to get back into title contention with a title eliminator bout against Gustafsson. Heres what was said on the matter:

“He’s got the biggest name. We’re both coming off of a loss. So it would make sense. If that’s the case, if they say Daniel, you and Alexander fight, and the winner will get a title shot against Anthony or Jon, then, yes. It needs to be guy with name recognition. So where the people say, ‘ok Daniel beat this guy, we need to see him either fight for the championship again, or he’s very close.’ Because to me Alexander and I, realistically, are two guys who could fight for the belt. Once you get past us, and Rashad, they’re all rematches. past them who you going to put in the cage with Jon? Maybe the golden ticket is Gustafsson, because if Rashad gets Gustafsson, maybe Rashad gets the title shot.”

Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop II Headline’s First Ever Poland Event

In a landmark announcement the UFC today confirmed the date and venue for the first ever UFC event in Poland and stacked the card with two incredible fights.

The announcement, made by Polish rising star Jan Blachowicz at a press conference in Stockholm on the eve of UFC Fight Night GUSTAFSSON vs JOHNSON, confirmed that the event will take place on April 11 at the Krakow Arena.

After a three year absence legend Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic returns to the Octagon to meet Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga in the headline event, while Blachowicz returns home to Poland to meet no. 10 ranked Jimi ‘Poster Boy’ Manuwa, in a co-main event clash with big implications for the 205 lb. class.

Squaring off against former Pride 2006 Open-Weight Champion “Cro Cop” will be Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace “Napao” in a rematch that MMA fans have been clamoring to have for years.

In 2007, Gonzaga scored a highlight reel knockout of Filipovic at UFC 70 and now “Cro Cop” seeks revenge as he looks to secure his legacy in the UFC by avenging one of his most agonising defeats and re-establish himself as a force in the heavyweight division. Hoping to spoil the homecoming, Gonzaga is out to prove his win all those years ago was no fluke and show fans worldwide that he can still mix it up with the best in the world.

Blachowicz, who scored a stunning first round TKO of Ilir Latifi in his UFC debut in October, knows a win over Manuwa will likely secure him his first top 15 ranking and announce his intentions to make a statement in the light heavyweight division. Never one to struggle under the bright lights, Manuwa will look to silence Blachowicz’s adoring fans and return to the ways that saw him win his first 14 fights, including three vicious TKO’s to start his UFC career. A victory for the “Poster Boy” would continue his meteoric rise and will surely start the chatter again of a possible future title contender.

Poland’s Kraków Arena will host the country’s first live UFC event on April 11. With both the contingent of Polish athletes now fighting in the UFC and the number of Polish MMA fans growing at a phenomenal rate, David Allen, Senior Vice President and General Manager for UFC in EMEA today explained that Poland was a country which simply could not be ignored this year:

“Poland has been on our radar for a long time now,” Allen said. “This is a country that celebrates combat sports so we knew that holding an event here would excite the whole country. This event could rival last year’s Dublin event. We expect it to sell-out, without a doubt.”
