Stipe Miocic Is Still Sad Due To Daniel Cormier KO Loss At UFC 226, DC Tells Him “Not To Be Thirsty”
It looks like Stipe Miocic doesn’t like the fact that Daniel Cormier will be defending his UFC Heavyweight title versus Derrick Lewis. The decision of the title fight, that will headline UFC 230, was made recently. At least it is less controversial than Brock Lesnar “sh*t show”!
Let’s take a brief look at Derrick Lewis. In the last three fights, he earned the score of 3-0. In the first place, he defeated Marcin Tybura via TKO at UFC Fight Night 126 on February 18, 2018. Then he had one of the worst performances versus Francis Ngannou at UFC 226 on July 7, 2018. Yet, he won via unanimous decision. In the last fight, he came up with a spectacular KO victory over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 on October 6, 2018.
Stipe Miocic informed ESPN that he offered Cormier a rematch. Yet, DC denied it. Stipe Miocic posted a video on Twitter which talks about his fight versus Cormier on July 7, 2018. Stipe is still sad due to Cormier’s clinch KO.

“I’m a way better fighter than he was,” Miocic said. “Nine out of 10 times, I win that fight. That was the one time. It kills me inside, because I’m a way better fighter than he is. I know it and everyone else knows it. I think he knows it, too.”
Cormier wasn’t too rude towards Stipe Miocic. He promised him he will get the next title shot if Brock Lesnar fails.

“Damn seems like I’ve knocked my guy @stipemiocic silly. Come on my guy don’t be thirsty! We’re still good. You got next if Brock doesn’t make it!”
Miocic respects Cormier and his victory. Yet, he has found a perfect excuse – his newborn daughter. Read Stipe’s response below carefully!
You beat me that night. I respect that. But it would never happen again. I carried the torch in this division for a long time. I’ve been staying up all night with my new born daughter and I still offered to fight you nov 3 with ZERO camp weeks ago.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe Daniel Cormier will give The Baddest Man On The Planet a chance for the rematch? Is DC just trying to play games?
