Machida Doesn’t Want Daniel Cormier Jumping The Line At 205 Pounds


“I believe that there’s a ranking and it should be followed. There are a lot of guys in line right now in the weight class to fight for a title. I’ve been waiting in line. There’s Glover Teixeira, there’s Phil Davis, so there’s a lot of guys in there in the mix. If he’s going to move down to 205, he’s going to need to put a couple of fights in, or at least have a significant win in a big fight. I don’t think it’s right for him to just come in and cut the line. I think he’s going to have to show that he deserves that title shot.”

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion addressed the talks of a DC division takeover on a recent call with the media.

Should Cormier be allowed to jump in front of Machida and the other contenders in their division?
