Stipe Miocic Put Daniel Cormier On Blast For Ducking Rematch
Former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic who defended the title a record three times has been lobbying a rematch with Daniel Cormier for some time now since he lost to ‘DC’ last July at UFC 226, but good luck isn’t on his side. Miocic even offered to fight Cormier for the 265-pound title at the UFC 230 pay-per-view (PPV) event, last November. However, promotion and Cormier opted to go with fan-favorite Derrick Lewis.
Even UFC color commentator Joe Rogan said Stipe Miocic should get a rematch after what “Baddest Man on the Planet” has accomplished.
Miocic who still works as a full-time firefighter tried another attempt to woo Cormier for the second run. He conveys the message via a very emotional video while talking to his baby girl saying why ‘DC’ “owes me this one.”
On Tuesday Cormier replied to former champ stating he doesn’t owe anything to anyone especially ‘entitled’ Stipe Miocic.
Cormier’s Tweet didn’t sit well with Miocic who fires back in a big way.

It looks like a rematch between the duo is unlikely if Brock Lesnar cleared to return to Octagon. And ‘DC’ wants to end his career with a lucrative fight against WWE star. If that doesn’t work, Cormier could very well take part in a trilogy against formal rival Jon Jones.
What do you think will we ever see a Cormier vs. Miocic rematch? What’s your take on this matter?
