D.C. Just Destroyed Alexander Gustafsson For Calling Out Luke Rockhold

Just yesterday, former UFC title challenger Alexander Gustafsson called out Luke Rockhold to a fight.

Prior to Luke’s UFC 221 defeat, he had stated that he plans an eventual move to the UFC’s light-heavyweight division, and Alexander Gustafsson answered that call on Instagram.

“@lukerockhold , your teammate is holding MY Division hostage, and you think there are only easy fights at LHW. If u think Romero hits hard, then wait till you come to the big boys. I want @dc_mma , and knocking u out will keep me warm in the meantime. Beware of coming up in weight because I will be standing at the front door waiting.”

The UFC light-heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier considers Luke a brother, and has taken issue with what Gustafsson said.

Here’s D.C. response:

Nice timing Alexander(kick him while he’s down huh). I got a better idea tho he doesn’t fight you next. He fights Robert Whitaker, I mean sometimes that happens right. You lose your way into a title shot! #thegustafsonway

Of course, Daniel Cormier is referring to when Gustafsson lost to Anthony “Rumble” Johnson at their UFC on FOX event, losing by knockout, and then went on to face Daniel Cormier in his very next fight.
