Daniel Cormier shares his thoughts on the vacant BMF title

The lightweight fight between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje is official and is scheduled to happen on the 29th of July as the main event under the UFC 291 card. The winner of the heated battle will claim the BMF title that was formerly Jorge Masvidal’s priciest possession.

Since the UFC has reintroduced the long-lost belt, Daniel Cormier looks forward to seeing more fights for the BMF title. Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier have been inactive for quite some time now, and it will be very interesting to see their comeback knock.

A win could also lead to securing a fight against the current lightweight champion Islam Makhachev who will have the opportunity of adding more belts to his prestigious career.

Daniel Cormier’s thoughts on the BMF title

Recently on his YouTube channel, Daniel Cormier spoke about the significance of the BMF title and mentioned how he wants the UFC to arrange more fights for it.

“I ask you this question: Is this new champion going to defend the ‘BMF’ title?”. Cormier said as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I believe that these two athletes would go up, they would fight at 155, and they would defend that belt.

Because if we’re gonna keep rolling it out, it has to become a thing that gets put on the line, especially if these guys aren’t fighting for championships. Masvidal didn’t seem to want to defend that championship even though people called for it many times.

“Is ‘The Rock’ gonna be there again and make it feel as important as it did in Madison Square? The winner is going to set themselves up for another crack at the championship with Makhachev being the champ, and it’s always easier to call for a title fight when you’re carrying a belt on your shoulders.

And that’s exactly what one of these two are gonna do in Salt Lake City. But let’s not not defend the ‘BMF’ championship, because now it means something”.
