UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic apparently pays no attention to Daniel Cormier and his constant attempts to get him to sign an early contract.
DC has been gathering for a conclusion about their trilogy for quite some time now. And it’s not like Stipe doesn’t want to give DC the fight. However, the prevailing circumstances prevent the possibility of a trilogy in the near future.
That’s because Stipe hasn’t really been able to train much. Although he came out victorious against DC the last time they locked horns, he got a broken retina. The treatment for the same took quite a long time. And when he finally started training after healing, the coronavirus pandemic shook the world.
Obviously, Ohio, Stipe’s home state, has it much harder in terms of the rules and restrictions that exist. Stipe received the same, Stipe said in an interview with MMA Fighting,
“I don’t know what people really want from me. Everyone is like “he keeps the division”. And I’m like “how do I keep up the division?” Other guys say, “We can train.” Well, good for you! You live in a different state, you have different regulations! “
Stipe Miocic has apparently lost Daniel Cormier’s attempt to an early fight by not paying attention!
Continue with the interview, said Miocic,
“My coach, no joke, closed his gym. He took no dudes, no one pays for it is not fair to everyone. They had a lot of things outside the gym and a couple [of] people, like five or six people working out together, they were even six feet apart and someone saw it and reported it and he was quoted by the CDC. That’s how strict they are. So everyone can just shut up because they are idiots. “
Stipe focused on DC and said he didn’t really care what DC had to say. While DC continues to call Stipe and advises him to set up a gym at home and what not, here is what Stipe has to say.
“I do not care. I really don’t care what his [Cormier’s] opinion is. Never did. Honestly, he says one thing and contradicts himself all the time. Apparently, I’m not a champion. He only calls his own shots. Anything. Everyone else is talking. To say free or defend. Anyway, I can’t make everyone happy or anyone happy. I don’t care right now. Stop crying.”
What do you think should be the next step for Stipe in the heavyweight division?
