UFC 232 featured a barn burner for the vacant light heavyweight title as former light heavyweight champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones took on two-time title challenger Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson in a rematch. Controversies aside, Jones outclassed Gustafsson via vicious ground and pound TKO in the third round to become the UFC light heavyweight champion.

The entire world especially an another main card fighter Corey ‘Overtime’ Anderson had a close eye on the bout. Anderson had defeated a #5 ranked and dangerous Ilir Latifi earlier that night. In his last fight, Anderson defeated former title challenger and #3 ranked Glover Teixeira via a lopsided unanimous decision.

However Monday morning, a frustrated Anderson took to Twitter after a fan pointed out that he was ranked #6 despite defeating Latifi when he was ranked #5 and Teixeira when he was ranked #3. (via Twitter):

Anderson claims that the UFC does not ‘respect’ him. He further added that even matchmaker Mike Maynard believes that he should be featured amongst top 5.

With former light heavyweight champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones recapturing his throne, a trilogy against arch rival Daniel Cormier or against #3 ranked Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith, is slated to be next for Jones. That been said, Anderson might have to wait a bit longer for his title shot.
