Stipe Miocic Says Daniel Cormier Owes Him A Title Shot, DC Fires Back

MMA

Daniel Cormier captured the UFC Heavyweight Title with a first round knockout victory over Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 226.

Miocic, who hasn’t competed since losing the strap, says that Cormier owes him a shot to reclaim the UFC Heavyweight Title.

“He’s a gentleman like me,” Miocic said to MMA Fighting. “If the roles were reversed, I’d do the same. I’d give him the shot back. I wouldn’t sit around and say, ‘No no, we’re good, I’m gonna fight someone else.’ No, man.”

Cormier, who has defended the gold once since defeating Miocic to win it, would take to Twitter to lambaste Miocic for claiming he is owed a title shot.

 

 

 

DC had previously stated that he would like to retire next month, meaning a rematch may be just out of Miocic’s reach.
