Ryan Bader and Daniel Cormier were suppose to fight later this year.
That contest, though, was scrapped when Cormier was inserted into a bout at UFC 187 vs. Anthony Johnson for the light heavyweight title. Cormier earned a submission win over Johnson Saturday night, becoming the new champion.
And you can bet Bader was ready to pounce for a title shot.
Jon jones get your shit together????? @dc_mma you need to get your shit together, you have a #1 contender right here waiting for you.
