UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has responded to Stipe Miocic calling him an idiot in a recent interview earlier this week.

Cormier scored a KO win over Miocic to win the UFC heavyweight title in the main event of the UFC 226 pay-per-view event.

Now, the rematch has been booked, which is expected to serve as the headliner of the upcoming UFC 241 pay-per-view event on August 17, 2019, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

The former UFC champion went on record earlier this week by calling him out for some of the comments he has made. Now, DC has returned the favor by promising something.

That something is the fact that he will break Miocic like UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones almost did to him after suffering two devastating losses.

“He’s gonna be done.” Cormier said on his Talk and Talker podcast recently (H/T to MMAFighting). “After this one, it will be very hard for Stipe to get back to where he once was because this one’s going to break him. I know what the second Jones fight did to me. It almost broke me. But all my life experiences – my father, my cousin, my daughter, my roommate – all those life experiences allowed me to keep things in perspective, whereas he hasn’t really had to do that. So when he loses in this spot, I don’t think he’ll be able to recover from it. It’ll be too much.”

Former middleweight champion and soon-to-be UFC Hall of Fame fighter Michael Bisping says heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier doesn’t want to fight Stipe Miocic again.

It was supposed to be the huge PPV spectacle he deserved. The return of Brock Lesnar to the UFC was going to be the payday that “DC” has been waiting for his entire MMA career. That’s what was supposed to happen.

Instead, the fans get is a rematch between Cormier and Miocic for August’s UFC 241; not a bad consolation prize. But according to “The Count,” it’s a fight “DC” never wanted to run back.

“I spoke with “DC” a couple of weeks ago about this,” Bisping said on a recent episode of his Believe You Me podcast. “He didn’t want to fight Stipe initially because he’s like listen, he went out there and he beat Stipe and he has nothing but good things to say about Stipe. He says he is a great champion, a great guy, all the rest of it. But how do I top that? How do I beat that? I knocked him out in the first round.”

Cormier has a valid point. How does he top his heavyweight title-winning performance from UFC 226? Suppose Miocic KOs Cormier in the first round, then what, a trilogy fight?

Regardless, Bisping agrees with Cormier. There is only one way to go when you reach the top.

“He (Cormier) is right, you can’t top that. DC wanted that big payday and you can’t blame him.”
