Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic are going to face each other in a rematch in the main event of UFC 241. And things are so much different this time than the last time these two fought. Stipe Miocic will be fighting for the first time since his loss against DC. While DC is going to defend his title for the second time.
Daniel Cormier has expressed his frustration on Stipe just sitting around like a brat and asking for the rematch. Daniel has said that Stipe should have fought other fighters in the last year to get back to the title spot again. But he decided to sit out the whole time and wair for the rematch.
DC has also said that Stipe is annoyed with him, but he doesn’t care at all what Stipe feels about him. To that Stipe said
” I don’t know what DC’s deal is. I just want the rematch. the dude cried on national TV. I don’t know if DC is trying to piss me off or make me act someone who I am not.”
After the fight with Stipe, Brock Lesnar came into the ring and challenged DC to a fight. And originally, these two were supposed to fight. Stipe was not even in the picture. But after Lesnar retired for MMA, UFC had to book a rematch between Stipe and DC. And it took a year for this rematch to take place.
Stipe has turned down fights in this period. And rightfully so. he is the most decorated champion in heavyweights. if there is anyone who deserves a rematch it’s Stipe Miocic. Stipe also said that Daniel Cormier would be doing the same if he were at my place.
