The UFC light heavyweight Corey Anderson is quickly rising through the ranks and has emerged as one of the top contenders in the division. He now wants to challenge UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones next.
Anderson is now riding on a three-fight winning streak having beaten the likes of Ilir Latifi, Glover Teixeira and Patrick Cummins. He has managed to get back on the top after suffering back to back defeats to Ovince St. Preux and Jimi Manuwa in 2017.
He talked about fighting the division kingpin on Slip n Dip Podcast where he was a guest.
“I definitely want the belt. So Jones, if you watching or if you see this, you know who it is. You said it after Ilir Latifi. You asked if I wanted that smoke. I told you that I wanted all the smoke! All of it. The crack smoke, the weed smoke, whatever you are smoking put it in my face because I am here. I am not hiding, I’m right here.”
Corey Anderson continued:
“Top five it up. Y’all want me? You know my name. Like the Candy Man, you say it three times and I’m going to pop up and sign the contract. Let’s get it.” (H/T – BJ Penn)
