Daniel Cormier has had a busy few weeks.

A week after defending his UFC light heavyweight title against Anthony Johnson with ease, Cormier played the role of FOX broadcaster for Saturday’s nationally televised UFC on FOX 24 event. Then on Monday, Cormier awoke to a callout from a budding rival at 205 pounds, and unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for Cormier to answer the call from No. 3 ranked Jimi Manuwa.

Check out the exchange below.

Manuwa (17-2) has won back-to-back fights via vicious knockouts over Ovince Saint Preux and Corey Anderson. He was in attendance earlier this month for UFC 210, where he got into a bit of a spat with Cormier following the champion’s victory over Johnson.

So what do you think, folks?

UFC president Dana White has already voiced hesitation about throwing Jon Jones into a big spot post-suspension. Is Cormier-Manuwa something you want to see?
