Unlike McGregor, White Not Stripping D.C., Will Let Him Defend Both Belts

UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has made UFC history. With that in mind, it would appear that the fighter will be treated a little different on the matter than UFC megastar Conor McGregor.

Daniel Cormier knocked out UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic within the first round of their main event match up at UFC 226 on Saturday. D.C. is now the second fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two division titles, second only the Ireland native Conor McGregor.

“Notorious,” of course, was stripped of his featherweight title shortly after having earned his lightweight belt. That being said, UFC President Dana White revealed at the UFC 226 Post-Fight Press Conference that he plans on letting Daniel Cormier defend both of his titles if he so chooses.

“He’s a guy I would let do that. I gotta talk to Cormier, we haven’t talked about any of this stuff yet, but we will talk this week about the two belts, what he wants to do. Maybe he defends his light heavyweight belt.”
