Daniel Cormier had a lot to say about Conor McGregor and Khabib individually, as well as on their chances of a rematch. Speaking on the latter, DC said that the highest-grossing match in the history of UFC is bound to happen again.

Daniel Cormier on Conor Vs Khabib and the possibilities

Daniel Cormier said, “There is no card, absolutely no card without Conor or Khabib that will be able to do that.” He added, ” Conor can go fight somebody else and still make money. I think he should go fight one more fight before he gets back in there with Khabib. Because what’s changed? What has he show in those 45 seconds with Cowboy that he has improved so much so that he can go in and change what happened with Khabib the last time.” 

Cormier wants Conor to fight Justin Gaethje next. A win over Justin will prove Conor deserves the fight against Khabib, putting him in the No.1 contender’s spot. If Conor emerges victorious, it shows improvement in the fighter’s game. The Irishman will prove that his changes to the game are enough to give Khabib problems in the rematch. Cormier said, ” We haven’t seen that from Conor’s match against Cerrone that it would be different between him and Khabib.”
