Daniel Cormier is on cloud nine at this moment. He shocked the world last week by defeating the heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and became a two-division champion in the process. DC finished Stipe in the very first round to capture the belt at UFC 226.

We had earlier reported that Yoel Romero is making a move to light heavyweight for his next fight.  Romero called DC out on Twitter yesterday for a fight with the current 205-pound champion:

DC was asked about Romero’s callout on FS1’s “UFC Tonight,” to which he replied saying that. “Here’s the deal: I never wrestled Yoel Romero, but in wrestling, he probably would have served me up. He’s one of the great wrestlers of all-time. But, you don’t fail a class and then get moved up a grade to the next one.”

DC further added saying “Chael Sonnen did that one time, but I don’t know what was going on, Chael has a way of doing that. Let’s just say that. I don’t want them to take one of these belts. So I will defend it. I will defend the light heavyweight title if the right fight presents itself.”

It didn’t take long for “The Soldier of God” to fire back:

Yoel Romero missed weight on his last two appearances and both these fights were title shots. Yoel now has a 13-3 professional record.
