It looks as if Daniel Cormier is taking over duties as UFC matchmaker, via his Twitter. Who needs Sean Shelby or Mick Maynard when you have Daniel Cormier? Apparently, not Daniel Cormier.
DC put out feelers on his Twitter, asking fans who he should fight next. By the sound of it, fans were overwhelmingly in favor of a DC vs Volkan Oezdemir showdown.
Gus – 2 in a row (Blachowitz, Texeira)
Volkan – 3 in row (OSP, Circunov, Manuwa) who should I fight next? @ufc

DC has so much on his plate, it’s a wonder he can find any time to train. He’s a fighter, father, UFC on FOX analyst and now… matchmaker. We will have to wait and see if the UFC agrees to everything, but it looks as if DC has his next light heavyweight title defense.
