Rogan: Miocic Deserves Cormier Rematch
Even though Brock Lesnar stormed to the front of the line following UFC 226, Joe Rogan thinks that Daniel Cormier needs to give Stipe Miocic a rematch before Lesnar returns from his USADA suspension.
“He should [get a rematch],” Rogan said on his podcast.
“People are thinking, the guy wins more UFC title defenses than anybody on the history of the sport and becomes the most accomplished heavyweight of all time. Think about what he’s done. Think about the fact that he knocks out Fabricio Werdum to win the title, he knocks out Alistair Overeem to defend the title, he knocks out Junior dos Santos, beats Francis when everybody is terrified of Francis. He became the most accomplished heavyweight of all time. Then he gets knocked out by a crazy, perfect punch by Daniel Cormier in a perfect strategy.”
Miocic would be knocked out by Cormier in the first round, and pushed out of a potential heavyweight clash with Lesnar, who is the current WWE Universal champion. With Cormier both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight champion, he has a litany of options of who he could face next. Yet, Cormier has complicated matters by setting a retirement date of March 2019, his 40th birthday.
And while Lesnar may be next, Miocic may be in the game, because of this one question from Rogan.
“The fight is Brock but the question is, can Brock pass tests?”
