Corey Anderson clarifies his stance on
receiving a title shot or being released from the UFC Corey Anderson wants a
title shot but he’s not issuing ultimatums to the UFC just yet
the former Ultimate Fighter winner made it clear that his next goal is to
compete for the light heavyweight championship after he dismantled highly
touted prospect Johnny Walker in less than one round in their fight at
UFC 244 in New York with four wins in a row including the stoppage against
Walker Anderson believes he’s done more than enough to earn a chance to compete
for UFC gold but he claims some comments he made after the fight ray it appeared
he was demanding a title shot or to be released from his contract we’re taking
out of context I have to clear that up and her son told MMA fighting on Tuesday
me just known for click pairing and I think I know what reporter said that but
he didn’t say the whole interview the interview in the back they said what do
you want next and I said I want a title fight I want John Jones my next fight
then they mentioned Dominic Reyes and I said 100% Dominic Reyes has been doing
his work he’s put in his time I wanted to fight him but he’s earned this fight
too I’m in no rush to fight for the title
right now if John Jones wants to fight Dominic Reyes in December January that’s
completely fide I will take the winner of that then it went on top but what if
they try to take one of these new guys and bump them up in the rankings and put
them in front view what if after Dominic Reyes they push you to the back of the
line again what would you do that’s when I said if they’re going to do that to me
then release me understand concedes that Dominic Reyes has take a similar claim
to the next title shot against reigning champion Jon Jones and he’s completely
okay if the UFC ops to book that fight in the next month there was no ultimatum
but under stone added getting passed over again assuming Reyes
gets to Jones next would be the time when he might be forced to start looking
at other career options
