Miocic hade innan detta 5 raka vinster och ville ha direkt returmatch, men det pratades istället om att Cormier skulle försvara bältet mot den forne tungviktsmästaren Brock Lesnar.
Miocic kallar Cormier för en ’idiot’ och är förvånad att han fick en returmatch till sist.
Via Ariel Helwanis MMA-Show:
[I was] In shock I think, it was kind of surreal. But I knew it was gonna happen… just being patient. I had no idea what he was talking about ‘a company conversation.’ I definitely wasn’t in that conversation. I had no idea about the Brock thing literally until right before I walked out for the fight so he’s an idiot. I have no idea what he’s talking about. He literally says one thing then he says something else. I don’t even listen anymore. But yeah, whatever. I don’t care. I’m fighting him that’s all I care about.
He can say what he wants to say, he’ll probably say something tomorrow and… I don’t know. Whatever. Right now, yeah [he annoys me], man. Jesus, like 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 fight three more times before you get a fight for the title, you gotta work your way up like everyone else.’ And I’m like what’re you talking about? You just said I deserve it…? I don’t know. 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.
De två möter varandra i augusti.
