Miocic Blasts Cormier Ahead Of UFC 241
Over a year after losing the UFC heavyweight championship, Stipe Miocic will return to the Octagon against the man who took it from him.
Miocic has been making it his business to blast Daniel Cormier at every turn since UFC 226 in July 2018, with recent accusations that Cormier was “holding out” for a fight with the now re-retired, Brock Lesnar.
While Cormier refuted that due to a back injury that occurred prior to UFC 230 in November, Miocic returned to the topic of Lesnar while on the Ariel Helwani MMA Show for ESPN.
“I have no idea what he was talking about ‘we had a company conversation,’ I had no idea about the Brock thing until literally right before I walked out for the fight so he’s an idiot,” Miocic told Ariel Helwani of Cormier previously saying both men knew of Lesnar being next for the winner.
“One minute he says I’m deserving and ‘If I don’t fight Brock, he’ll get the fight,’ and then he’s like ‘No, you gotta work your way up like everyone else. He’s like a woman when they want to go out to eat dinner but they have no idea what they want to go eat but they say they want to go eat somewhere but they change their mind. It’s just never-ending.”
