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

        Stipe is done. He never should have allowed D.C. to beat him. Lol. What a dummy.

          If DC beats Miocic there needs to be a third Jones fight. If Miocic wins DC ought to retire

                You won't fight Jones. You won't get another chance. You blew it.... both times

                  Stipe. How quickly people forget just how good he is - Daniel is going to get beat and beat badly. One fluke punch does not mean Daniel is in any way vastly superior the way people are painting this out. When Daniel says "when I am done with Stipe" he is WAY overconfident.

                    Daniel Cormier and all Daniel Cormier fans get this message. Stipe miocic was whooping Daniel Cormier ass in the first fight until Daniel Cormier start poking his fingers and Stipe miocic eyes. The referee kept warning Daniel Cormier to keep his fingers out of Stipe miocic eyes and he didn't do it and the referee did nothing. Daniel Cormier Stipe miocic in the eyes so many times that it cut his face all up around his eyes with his fingernails and he also broke his f****** fingers doing it to Stipe miocic. So if Daniel Cormier will keep his fingers out of Stipe miocic eyes.? Stipe miocic will get his belt back which he should have never lost because Daniel Cormier should have been disqualified for all the eyeball pokes. Anybody can blind anyone in a fight if they're ramming their fingers in their eyes and blinding them and they can beat that person because that person cannot see. If you watch the video of the first fight Stipe miocic was whooping Daniel Cormier ass all the way up till the time that Daniel Cormier started using his fingers in Stipe miocic eyes and that is when the fight turned and Daniel got the cheap knockout punch because he broke his fingers blinding the champion Stipe miocic. So keep your damn fingers to yourself Daniel Cormier and the outcome of this fight will be totally different. Any referee that referees this fight if you do not stop him from poking his fingers and Stipe miocic eyes this time then the commission wherever they fight at should take your license and you should never be able to referee again. So don't take a paycheck behind everybody back like the other referee probably did because he did nothing to Daniel Cormier for all the eye pokes and when the commentators didn't say anything about the eyeball pokes and nobody question DC about the eye pokes and tell everybody raised hell about it which was days later after the fight that's when everybody started talking about it. The a****** Ariel helwani a Stipe miocic about the I post and how they felt and Stipe miocic told him they were knuckle deep. So Daniel Cormier everybody can say you're the champ champ but I will always say that you are the cheater and you are no champion. You cannot beat Jon Jones in light heavyweight and you cannot beat Stipe miocic in heavyweight if you keep your f****** fingers out of his eyes. Will the UFC let Stipe miocic we're swimming goggles when he fights Daniel Cormier again.? Will the referee make Daniel Cormier stop poking Stipe in the eyes? Will anybody call Daniel Cormier out if he starts poking Stipe miocic in the eyes again like she did in the first fight. I would bet $1000000 on Stipe miocic to win the fight if I had $1000000 if Daniel Cormier doesn't poke him in the eyes and cheap like the cheating b**** the Daniel Cormier is. It was not what it was supposed to be you could see it on your face at the first part of the fight and you had to come up with a way to beat Stipe miocic in the only way that you could beat him was with the fingers in the eyes. You were getting your ass handed to you before that started happening. Stipe miocic should have protested that fight but because of the man he is he let your chicken little ass go ahead and claim victory. This time Daniel Cormier keep your f****** fingers out of his eyes and he will beat your f****** chubby black punk ass. Yes I do not like you Daniel Cormier because you are a phony champion and a fake ass champion. you are also no champion as far as I am concerned you are a liar and a cheat and a thief

                                    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.

                                                          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.

I give DC 1 minute to survive against Francis, at best. That would be an ugly beating.
