You know what sucks? Being the second best light-heavyweight in the world, but being the champ anyway because the best guy is an idiot.
I am, of course, talking about Daniel Cormier. He can never quite get past Jon Jones in the cage. However, Jones can’t get past failing drug tests – and getting stripped of the belt – so here we are.
Given all of Cormier’s accomplishments (remember that Strikeforce tournament he won?), it’s a tragedy that he’ll forever live in Jones’ shadow. But what can he do? Obviously, just keep fighting, and keep beating everyone else. And on Saturday, in the UFC 220 co-main event, that means whipping Volkan Oezdemir’s butt.
Here’s a Countdown vid for the light-heavyweight duo.
