Stipe Miocic Says The Rematch Versus Daniel Cormier Means More To Him Than Regaining The UFC Heavyweight Title: \u201cI Am The Better Fighter\u201d Stipe Miocic was one of the most successful names in the history of UFC Heavyweight division, with three successful title defenses in a row. Miocic became the 265-pound king at UFC 198 on May 14, 2016, when he put Fabricio Werdum to sleep via punch.

Stipe claims the rematch against \u201cDC\u201d means to him more than a UFC Heavyweight title. Miocic thinks he is a better rival than Cormier. (h\/t MMAFighting.com) \u201cOh, 100 percent,\u201d Miocic told MMA Fighting when asked if a Cormier rematch means more than regaining the title. \u201cIt\u2019s everything. Just because I know I\u2019m the better fighter. I believe I\u2019m the better fighter. In my heart. \u201cI felt like I was winning the fight. I felt like I kind of got off track of what I was doing, not doing my usual and listening to the game plan. And just kind of overstepped what I needed to do and he caught me with a punch \u2014 a punch I didn\u2019t see. I\u2019ll say to this day, he doesn\u2019t hit as hard as Ngannou. It was just right on the button, right where it needed to be.\u201d Stipe Miocic promises the world will see \u201ca different fighter\u201d next time he meets Daniel Cormier. \u201cIt wasn\u2019t like he was wiping the floor with me,\u201d Miocic said. \u201cI just knew I was the better fighter in there.

We\u2019ll see what happens.
