Jared Cannonier says either Title or Contender after the victory in the UFC

Following his victory in the UFC on ESPN 29 main event on Saturday, Jared Cannonier is only interested in one of two alternatives for his next fight.

Cannonier (14-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC) won a five-round unanimous decision over Kelvin Gastelum (17-8 MMA, 11-8 UFC) in his first fight since October (48-47, 48-47, 48-47). In his mind, the win qualified him for either another shot at UFC gold or a title eliminator versus a top challenger. He’s only willing to join up for that.

At a post-fight press conference, Cannonier told MMA Junkie, “It’s either title or contender.” “(Paulo) Costa was supposed to be there, but he didn’t show up. I’m in desperate need of a battle. I don’t believe (Israel Adesanya) or Robert (Whittaker) will fight until the next year. So, that’s it? Is it four, five, or six months? After that, I won’t be able to wait for another three to four months. So who knows, I might end up fighting.”

Cannonier is targeting the fourth quarter of 2021 or the first quarter of 2022 as his target dates. The UFC championship picture is a little hazy right now, with champion Adesanya and next-in-line challenger Whittaker presently in Australia and New Zealand, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
