Daniel Cormier Would Fight Stipe Miocic Again If Brock Lesnar Is Ineligible To Compete
Daniel Cormier claims he would gladly give a chance for a rematch to Stipe Miocic. But only if his “big money fight plans” versus Brock Lesnar fall through. After all, Lesnar was tested three times by USADA. Nobody knows whether he will be eligible to fight.
Daniel Cormier had a discussion with Jon Anik and Joe Rogan. The topic was whether Demetrious Johnson should get an immediate chance for the rematch. Johnson was dethroned at the co-main event of UFC 227 by Henry Cejudo. After the fight, Cejudo stated he would move one division up to challenge the winner of TJ Dillashaw Vs Cody Garbrandt. Yet, Cormier started defending Demetrious Johnson. (via MMAFighting.com)
“I love Henry and I love his idea that he wants to be a two-weight champ,” Cormier said. “Cool thing to do now. But if anybody deserves a rematch, it’s Demetrious Johnson. Come on, he lost a split decision after 11 title defenses. If Demetrious Johnson doesn’t get a rematch, there is no hope for any of us in the entire world, because that means that nothing you could ever do will warrant getting an immediate title shot [rematch].”
Joe Rogan heated the things up, asking why Cormier ignored Stipe Miocic and gave a chance to the WWE superstar Brock Lesnar. Miocic is the first man who defended UFC Heavyweight belt three times in a row. Brock Lesnar’s last win came at UFC 121! Cormier only said that he is willing to offer Stipe Miocic a rematch. But only if USADA renders Lesnar ineligible to compete!
“[Miocic] should [get a rematch], but he went three [defenses]. Three is a lot different than 11,” Cormier said. “And also, if Brock Lesnar was staring at Stipe, that would happen, but I’ll tell you this right now, I’ll tell you this on record: If Brock Lesnar doesn’t make it to the fight for any reason, I’ll fight Stipe again. That is not a problem.
“There is no reason I wouldn’t fight Stipe. I’m only fighting Brock because I’m fighting Brock. But if he doesn’t make it, I’ll fight Stipe again. There you go.”
