UFC veteran Randy Couture has decided to come forward with his thoughts on Daniel Cormier’s upcoming super fight against Stipe Miocic.
UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has decided to move up in weight to challenge heavyweight title holder Stipe Miocic for his title. Cormier is now set to face off for the heavyweight title at UFC 226.
The event will take place July 7 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. UFC 226 will be featured live on pay-per-view.
Speaking to MMANytt.com, Randy Couture offered his thoughts on how Cormier could take on the heavyweight phenom.
“Obviously, I think Daniel started in the heavyweight division, he’s a big guy, he’s got a great wrestling pedigree and he’s facing arguably the best heavyweight out there right now in Stipe Miocic. It’s going to be an interesting, technical fight. I think if Daniel can find a way to make Stipe Miocic wrestle him as much as possible during the course of that fight, it’s going to be a good night for him. If Stipe uses his range and striking IQ to keep Daniel off of him, it could be a good night for Stipe. It’s one of those fights, toss a coin, who’s going to win. I’m a wrestler, so I tend to feel like that wrestling pedigree is going to work well for Daniel. But Stipe’s one of the toughest guys out there. He’s a great fighter.”
