I am assuming ofcourse that by winning the hw tourney that DC is the current SF hw champion.
Are you intentionally trolling? There are probably 100+ LHW champions from different orgs around the world. You think they all should gets shot over fighters like Gustaffson and Machida?
The championship belts mean they are the champion of their org only. To think a TKO champion is a more legit contender than Machida is ignoring the fact that there are different teirs of organizations and subsequently different leves of competition in different orgs.
Cormier is not the SF champ. He is the SF tourney champ. Ubereem is the champ unless he vacated it, in which case it would be vacant. Even if DC was the SF HW champ, it would be a completely different division.
