Daniel Cormier said he doesn’t understand why UFC 192 opponent Alexander Gustafsson gets so much credit for his loss to Jon Jones nearly two years ago.

At UFC 165 in September 2013, Gustafsson (16-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC), who’s set to challenge Cormier (16-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) for his UFC light-heavyweight title at UFC 192, gave ex-champ Jones arguably the most competitive fight of his career.

“The Mauler” came out on the losing end of a unanimous decision, but since that fight, he’s received praise for pushing Jones to his limit during the dramatic five-round affair.

I hope the Mauler Mauls DC. I cannot stand DC. He's the only fighter that I've routed against in a Jones fight since Jones has been Champ.

And Btw, Gus fight w/Jones > than DC fight w/Jones.

Agreed. He's not likeable in any way. I'm not a fan of McGregor but I can definitely see why people are. I would not be able to understand a DC fan at this point.

Gus did so much better against JBJ than DC did.

Lots of people thought he won that fight.

DC should shut up.

Good grief! I used to be on the DC hype train, especially when he beat up Josh Barnett...but he seems like a total douchebag now. Gus seems cool as shit and like you all said there was no loser in his fight with Jon Jones...now there was definitely a loser (a sore one too) in the fight between Jones and DC.

Gus handled this like a champ tbh. He flat out admitted he knows that the Jones fight is his biggest accomplishment in his career SO FAR (before I get bashed lol). He also probably understands him giving the P4P best an extremely close fight is what got him a title fight coming off a first round knockout loss. Gus gets you have to take the good with the bad. Real classy guy that Gus.

I'm a DC fan. He just doesn't know how to hide his arrogance and douchery, like dare I say, Jon Jones.

This is what I have been telling ppl..the hype leading up to JBJ v DC, made me hate DC and actually root for JBJ..DC is a fake and tries to be ultra cool and likable but in reality he's a fake and that's when JBJ actually embraces his darkside which made me like him..be who u are..and DC true colors are starting to show..I actually don't know why ppl like DC..it's not like he's that exciting or mixes it up that well like Cain does..he's just a really good wrestler but that time will fade as all wrestlers do and then he'll have to rely on his striking which is shit btw..

I was going to say basically the same thing. Every time he talks it just seems fake and scripted. He's trying to hype his fights and it just comes off terribly. I'm rooting for Gus all day here.

It's been a while since I watched it, so I'm not going to try and score it, but I remember a few of my buddies thinking it was a pretty clear win for Gus.

I said it was closer than they were arguing, but could see an argument for either guy.

Point is, DC got treated like a child in that fight and Gus fought him to a "could have gone either way" decision.

DC should keep his mouth shut. He didn't earn that belt he's carrying around.

If Jones doesn't fall in love with the CoCo, Deez Cuntz has no title and is eating tons of Popeyes while crying on the toilet.
