Although Daniel Cormier is the current UFC light heavyweight champion, his career has unfortunately been overshadowed by the youngest champion in UFC history, Jon Jones.

Cormier and Jones fought for the light heavyweight title at UFC 182. The former suffered his first mixed martial arts defeat via decision at the hands of his younger and most bitter rival, Jones. However, following that loss, Jones was involved in legal issues that resulted in him being stripped of the light heavyweight title.

Therefore, Cormier fought Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 and won the vacant 205-pound title via submission in the third round. Although Cormier successfully defended the belt against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192, many did not consider his title legitimate, as Jones never lost the title in the Octagon.
