Last Fight: Alexander Gustafsson via split decision at UFC 192.
Reason: Since Jon Jones can’t seem to keep his nose clean (get it….nose clean….its a cocaine joke….you get it) we needed someone to become the new dominant light-heavyweight and DC was up to the challenge. After taking Anthony Johnson’s spirit to earn the title that was vacated by Jon Jones he was put up against the man who gave Jon his toughest fight in Alexander Gustafsson. The fight turned into a war with Gus hitting DC with an insane knee in the 2nd round. DC was able to power through that and win most of the rounds in a hell of a fight. I really don’t think anything will change when DC and Jones fight again but until Jon can get his shit together DC is the champ.
