Stipe Miocic challenges UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier to a rematch with the strap being on the line.

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. This fight took place in July at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, which marked history as Cormier was a two-division champion. DC has since relinquished the UFC light heavyweight title.

Cormier is expected to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar with the title being on the line sometime in the first quarter of 2019. This has caused Miocic to feel upset due to him holding the title and defending it for a historic amount of time.

Challenge

This makes him believe that he should get a rematch. However, it appears that will not happen. Miocic is not backing down as he recently fired out a tweet with the challenge of a rematch being in mind. He wrote the following:

“.@dc_mma March 20 is coming up quick. Let’s settle this and get this fight on the books before you blow the candles out on that cake.”

Derrick Lewis is coming off the first UFC heavyweight title opportunity of his career.

Lewis met Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 230 in November. The bout took place from “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately for “The Black Beast,” he was submitted in the second round via rear-naked choke. It marked the end of a three-fight win streak for the 33-year-old.

Now, with a new UFC contract recently signed, Lewis will be making his return to the Octagon. He’s set to face former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC on ESPN+ 4. The show goes down from the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas on March 9th. Recently, Lewis spoke to MMAjunkie about the upcoming match-up.

Despite his recent title loss to Cormier, Lewis says he still has the “hunger” inside him to be great:

“I’m feeling good about this fight, too, and I’m real happy about my contract that I just signed,” Lewis said. “And so everything is looking up. Even though I’m coming off a loss, I’m happy, I’m satisfied, and I still got that hunger in me.”

Facing Another Former Champion

If he wants to get back to the UFC heavyweight title, Lewis will have to start by defeating a former champion in “JDS.” Dos Santos is currently on a two-fight win streak. His most recent victory came against Tai Tuivasa in the second round of their fight at UFC Fight Night 142 in December.

Given the odd situation at heavyweight, it’s very possible the winner of this fight receives the next shot at the championship. Daniel Cormier could very well retire soon, or decide to jump back down to light heavyweight and fight Jon Jones. This isn’t something Lewis has paid too much mind to, but if it happens, he’s ready:

“I never even thought about it. But if I can pull the win off, of course it would great to get another shot,” said Lewis. “But if not, I’m not going to be mad. I’m not going to be sad. I’m not going to be complaining. It is what it is.”
