Daniel Cormier might have just 2 fights left before the end of his storied career, but he has a whole hound of fighters gunning for him till then.
Latest of which is Ilir Latifi. Latifi has won 5 out of his last 6 fights and is currently on one of the hottest streaks in the LHW division.
He took to Instagram to call out the ‘champ champ’ Daniel Cormier once again.
Champ @dc_mma you keep avoiding me. I’m the one you should defend the title against at 205. You don’t want to fight Alex But you can’t hide from me, no excuses, let’s heal up and make it happen, don’t be dodging Champ, give me the shot All respect @ufc @ufceurope @mmajunkiedotcom @arielhelwani @joerogan @danawhite @mickmaynard2
He had previously tried to get DC’s attention.
@dc_mma Mister Pound for Pound! Lets give the fans the best possible show at LHW! Shogun is a legend, and a great fighter, but I’m the only one at the top of LHW that has 5 wins out of my last 6 with 3 KO’s and 1 submission in the first round! I’m one of the most active fighters in the division! Let us both heal and set it up! You said it yourself: “Ilir Latifi is the strongest guy I’ve ever trained with.” And with my 100% takedown defense, we all know this will be a slug fest! You never know, I might just take you down once for the fun of it. Let’s rumble in NYC! LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN! @dc_mma @danawhite @ufc @ufceurope @arielhelwani @joerogan
Daniel Cormier has already claimed he will fight only big names or in big fights and has promised never to give Alexander Gustafsson a rematch.
Ilir Latifi might have to step up his trash talking game a bit more, if he is to bring DC back to the LHW division.
