Daniel Cormier knocked out Stipe Miocic for the UFC heavyweight title back at UFC 226. Ever since then, Miocic has been working hard to get a rematch against the now reigning two-division champion. That being said, D.C. has since locked in a match up against another opponent.
Daniel Cormier is now set to fight Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230 on Saturday, Nov. 3. Since then, Stipe Miocic has become active on social media concerning the matter.
First, the former champion took to Instagram with the following message.
“9 times out of 10 I beat DC. Everyone knows it. DC knows it. No heavyweight has ever accomplished what I have. #HWGOAT”
Daniel Cormier has since fired back with a message of his own for the former title holder.
“Damn seems like I’ve knocked my guy @stipemiocic silly. Come on my guy don’t be thirsty! We’re still good. You got next if Brock doesn’t make it!”
Now check out Miocic’s latest addition to the war of words down below.
“You beat me that night. I respect that. But it would never happen again. I carried the torch in this division for a long time. I’ve been staying up all night with my new born daughter and I still offered to fight you nov 3 with ZERO camp weeks ago.”
