Miocic on being mentioned among the best in UFC history: “it means my coaches have done something right. It’s not just me, but my team and family have sacrificed so much for me to be here.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
Miocic on Jon Jones being next if he gets past Ngannou: “I’m just gonna take care of what I gotta do Saturday and then we’ll see.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
Ngannou on the biggest difference between his first fight against Miocic and now: “I didn’t have any experience at that level. I had much better preparation for this fight and skill wise, I have improved in many areas. I may be 34, but I believe I’m very young in this sport.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
White on Khabib’s formal retirement announcement: “I told you guys I was gonna try and convince him but I just couldn’t. He seems to be done and I don’t think he’s coming back.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
Miocic on what would be more important, beating Cormier twice or beating Ngannou twice: “Every win is important, the trilogy with DC was awesome but Francis is such an amazing fighter and has been taking people out left and right...I’ll let you know when I’m done.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
White on McGregor vs. Poirier 3: “Dustin wants the rematch and that’s smart. The kid’s worked hard his whole life to be in a position like this. Hoping to make it in the ballpark of July.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
Miocic on the biggest thing he learned from facing Daniel Cormier three times: “Not lose to him. I just can’t get caught. It’s a part of the game but if I listen to my coaches and I should be fine.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
White on what happens if Ngannou wins, does Miocic deserve rematch before Jon Jones fight: “That’s a good question @TheSchmo312. I don’t know. It’s hard to say he doesn’t deserve a rematch, but we’ll see.”— Fightful MMA (@FightfulMMA) March 25, 2021
