Stipe Miocic Won’t Accept Dana White’s “Fake Apology” For UFC 226 Post-Fight Humiliation
Stipe Miocic is defeated in the main event of UFC 226 to Daniel Cormier via first-round KO. Before the fight, he was telling that he could face Brock Lesnar after the birth of his daughter, but he would first like to take some time off fighting so he can enjoy the arrival of his newborn child.
But when he saw the hypocrisy UFC made after his fight with DC, Miocic has completely changed the story. A monster payday comes with Brock Lesnar, who is afforded to Daniel Cormier who became the champion? A man who had USADA issues and didn’t fight for a long time gets a title shot?!
“It was a shit show and it was disrespectful,” Miocic told ESPN. “I didn’t think that was what the UFC was all about. How can you give a guy a title shot who hasn’t fought in over two years, is suspended, and his last fight is a no-contest because he was taking PEDs?”
Miocic is definitively right about Brock Lesnar’s career facts, no doubt about that. Stipe Miocic also knows to recognize the difference between fake and real apology. He believes Dana White didn’t offer a sincere apology.
“It was like a two-second conversation, [White] apologized for everything that happened in the cage,” Miocic said. “I just said, ‘Whatever.’ The apology didn’t mean anything. That’s what they want to happen.”
Daniel Cormier is expected to fight Brock Lesnar in 2019 unless Mark Hunt’s attorneys find some magic crack in the law. After all, this is not the first time Brock Lesnar was using banned substances.
What do you think, does Stipe Miocic has the full rights to be angry? Is UFC slowly turning into the world where trash-talkers and popular fighters can get whatever they want non-dependent of their Octagon skills?
