With his win at UFC 220, Daniel Cormier said he feels like the UFC light-heavyweight champion again. But will fans ever really see him that way after two failed attempts to dethrone Jon Jones, and if not, what then? Retired UFC and WEC fighter Danny Downes and MMAjunkie columnist Ben Fowlkes discuss in this week’s Trading Shots. * * * * Downes: Ben, your favorite high school gym teacher went out there in Boston on Saturday night and took care of business. Daniel Cormier defended his UFC light heavyweight title against Volkan Oezdemir in convincing fashion via second-round TKO , but as the belt was wrapped around his waist, I couldn’t help but shrug my shoulders and go “meh.” Cormier just beat a guy who he spent the last couple weeks telling us “wasn’t on his level.” He had a point, but what are we supposed to think about a light-heavyweight champion who retains his title by beating a member of the “JV” team?
