Former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson has come forward with his thoughts on reigning champion Daniel Cormier’s upcoming heavyweight title fight against Stipe Miocic. Particularly, Gustafsson has a few words concerning Cormier’s cardio.
Daniel Cormier is set to move up in weight to challenge UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic for his title. The two mixed martial arts phenoms will face off at UFC 226. The highly anticipated live pay-per-view event will take place July 7 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast with the UFC’s veteran commentator, Alexander Gustafsson offered his thoughts on the fight.
“This fight against Stipe, if it was against another heavyweight I would probably say Stipe is going to win. But DC is a really good heavyweight, so we will see what happens. He is world class, doesn’t take a step back and he is in your face.
“He’s a badass, but DC is such a competitive guy. He goes for it, in tough situations he eats it and comes right back and does what he does, always. And for being a fat guy, that guy is doing five rounds like nothing. So his conditioning is on top.”
