Daniel Cormier is naming his favorite fight on the current UFC 300 lineup.

The former UFC dual champion is sharing his own favorite fight coming into the historic UFC 300 which takes place on Saturday, April 13th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Daniel Cormier shared his favorite fight for the upcoming UFC 300 on ‘ESPN’:

“I’ll be honest, I love the China vs. China fight (Weili vs. Xiaonan), wish that happened in China, but for me, it’s about Charles Oliveira and Arman Tsarukyan. For the first time in a long time, it feels like this division is moving in a direction where all those guys who have been essentially the protectors of the top five are saying, ‘We will fight this next generation of lightweight.’ Can those guys break into that top five?”

Continuing the 44-year-old commentator said (h/t MMAJunkie):

“Can they break up that quad of Poirier, (Justin) Gaethje, (Michael) Chandler. (Islam) Makhachev never really got a chance. He went as close to the top five as he could and then he became champion. Now can these guys do the same thing? Because for a while, those guys would never even fight them. You’d offer Dustin (Poirier) an Arman Tsarukyan, (and) he’d be like, ‘What? Are you crazy? Why?’ Or Charles. Now those guys are saying, ‘OK, we’ll fight these guys.’ Let’s see what happens.”

It will be former UFC champion Charles Oliveira (34-9 MMA) meeting up with Arman Tsarukyan (21-3 MMA) in a lightweight bout on April 13th.

Oliveira, 34, last fought and defeated Beneil Dariush (22-6 MMA) via TKO in June of last year at UFC 289.

Tsarukyan, 27, has won 3 in a row coming into UFC 300, his last victory also coming against Beneil Dariush this past December.

Do you have a favorite fight on the UFC 300 card? Do you, like Daniel Cormier, believe this Oliveira vs. Tsarukyan is the one to watch?
