Poor Alexander Gustafsson. In his struggle to remain relevant in a division where he’s always been the number two- or number three-ranked guy, he’s been challenging anyone and everyone, calling out any fighter who a victory over might give him some shine.
I mean, you can’t fault Gustafsson for trying. He’s just trying to find work and get paid.
Unfortunately, one person has taken umbrage at Gustafsson’s efforts. And that person owns both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight belts.
So here’s Daniel Cormier taking a big crap on the Swede’s title hopes.
Dear Alex, I don’t know what happened to you going back to the Rockhold situation. You have always been a stand up guy but your behavior changed. From calling a guy out the day after he got knocked out, to now offering to fight me knowing I have a broken hand, after Volkan couldn’t go. Now you’ve turned down Jan, turned down Khalil all while calling for a heavyweight title fight. Now, moments after Anthony Smith does his work like an animal you decide you’re hurt. Man, I respect you as a fighter. I will always be grateful for October 2015, but you and I won’t share the octagon again. I am disappointed in who you’ve become. You are so entitled, man, I can’t deal with delusional people. Good luck recovering. Our time has passed. See you from the commentary table. DC @alexthemauler #wegoourseparateways
