Daniel Cormier On Reason For Stipe Miocic Rematch: 'I Did Give Him My Word' - MMA Fighting

  • Published: 11 May 2019
  • At UFC 237, UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier discussed his UFC 241 rematch against Stipe Miocic, why he accepted the fight, Brock Lesnar, why he would potentially cut down to 205 pounds again to fight Jon Jones, the UFC's new pay-per-view model, and much more.

    hammering the point home

          Lesnar wanted to get paid upfront again so they cant take his payment away for PED's

                  Gotta say, massive respect to DC. If Stipe had to lose, I am glad it was to DC, could not have happened to a better dude. All of that being said, come on Stipe, get your belt back! I hope DC beats Jones then.

                            If DC gets knocked out and has no belts and Jon doesnt want the fight.... and Stipe petitions for a super fight with Jones and doesnt rematch.... And then Francis knocks DC out....

                                    He will knock out Stipe in the first round again but he's scared of Jones

                                        He doesn’t need to tie his career to jones that is correct but he’s been beaten by him twice. Jones is the GOAT! Cormier is a fantastic guy with a big heart and is the pinnacle of professionalism.

                                          dc vs jones at heavyweight is the fight to make. making dc fight at 205 at this point seems like cruel and unusual punishment....

                                              There's no way his first win was a fluke, that was a straight exploit.

                                                      DC haters talking about eyepokes completely forgot Stipe hit him too. Jealous children 😂

                                                          He's smart by not overlooking Stipe. Stipe is hungrier and has KO power. If DC looks forward to his next fight Stipe will beat him

                                                            If they do it at heavyweight it would be a toss up.

That's exactly why I knew DC would beat him the fist time and again in this fight cause DC is just the smarter fighter with more tools.
