Daniel Cormier speaking on The Anik & Florian Podcast: \u201cI\u2019ve been waiting for the final go ahead. Obviously, this throws a wrench into those plans, when we see what happens to Oezdemir. It\u2019s kind of all fluid right now because we\u2019ve got to see what happens with this guy. is on the longest win streak in the division, so he was getting the title shot, but if this trouble is gonna\u2019 keep him out of the opportunity, I\u2019ll just go to the next guy. So, of course, I\u2019d fight Gustafsson, and someone told me yesterday that Team Ovince Saint Preux was like, \u2018We want a title fight because we\u2019ve got a good winning streak too.\u2019 Whoever is winning gets the title shot, that\u2019s just the way it is. I don\u2019t care who it is.\u201d Volkan Oezdemir has gone on record saying he will knockout Cormier in the first round, while Daniel said keep dreaming. Cormier last seen at UFC 214, where he lost the bout in the third round of his rematch with Jon "Bones" Jones. However, later \u201cDC\u201d was reinstated as 205-pound king due to Jones testing positive for Turinabol, the anabolic steroid after the fight. Before that, DC successfully defended his title against Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson.
