The situation in the Light-Heavyweight division seems to be the most confusing in the UFC rite now.
There is Alex Gustafsson, 2-time title contender and current No. 1 LHW contender. Ilir Latifi, Jan Blachowicz and Ovince St.Preux are coming off strong wins and then there is the new entrant into the division, Anthony ‘LionHeart’ Smith.
But, there seems to be one contender that DC has his eyes set on. Corey Anderson, who notched up a dominant victory, this past weekend over (previously) No.3 ranked Glover Teixeira, seems to be the guy.
Corey Anderson ‘called out’ the ‘Champ Champ’ respectfully.
Yo @dc_mma ,
They said a win over me and Glover would earn a title shot..I beat em, media said you wanted Shogun and he lost, you told Gus off, and you already fought Volkan.. I'll never "call you out" out of respect. But I'm 100% down to fight you. #UFC @ufc #letsdoit

The ‘Champ Champ’ replied in kind.
Ok , sure just find out when and where. I’ll be there. I always am!

A potential fight with Corey Anderson could be the final fight in the Light-Heavyweight division for Daniel Cormier, as he has announced his retirement date as March 2019.
