Daniel Cormier has had an interesting year within the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). The UFC lightweight champion was granted a chance at redemption, as Cormier was set to face off against the only opponent to ever best him inside the octagon at UFC 214.
For the fight, Cormier welcomed Jon Jones back into the UFC for the night’s main event. Jones was coming off of a year long suspension due to a drug test failure in 2016. Jones would go on to earn another victory over Cormier, with a title earning knockout at UFC 214. However, the victory was short lived.
It was later revealed that Jones failed his drug test for UFC 214, stripping the fighter of his title and over turning his knockout victory to a no contest. Daniel Cormier is once again the light heavyweight champion.
Taking to Twitter, the champion has now revealed some new information on a fight from his past. Cormier went toe-to-toe with tough contender Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192, earning a split decision victory over the fighter. While Cormier walked away with the win, it would appear that the two fighters did not do much to draw in pay-per-view buyers for the event.
Over Twitter, Cormier stated:
“ALEXANDER and I sold 200,000 ppv last fight. We really blew that b**ch up.”
