Daniel Cormier need to not be acquiring any pay out-per-perspective (PPV) factors beneath the “insane” new ESPN+ offer, because “DC” is not undertaking a quite very good occupation of advertising his Stipe Miocic trilogy, not too long ago created formal for the UFC 252 heavyweight key party in August.
In fact, the Olympian flat-out explained to Ariel Helwani (transcribed by MMA Combating) that he designs to emulate Curtis Blaydes, who fortunately huffed-and-puffed his way to a stupid-looking victory with a wrestling-dependent offense in the UFC on ESPN 11 headliner last weekend in Las Vegas.
“I adore fighting at the APEX,” Cormier stated. “That aged leg is gonna be right in front of me to get. I’ll be like Curtis Blaydes. If you want to see a 25-minute stand-up struggle, that’s not what you’re obtaining. I hope Stipe has his wrestling footwear, for the reason that with the little cage, single-leg, solitary-leg, one-leg, solitary-leg, wrestling. It is what it is. Sorry.”
Cormier, 41, stopped Miocic in the UFC 226 major event in summer months 2018, then went on to notch his initial title defense from Derrick Lewis later on that 12 months. “DC” would cough up his crown when he rematched Miocic at UFC 241, leaving their rivalry at one particular apiece.
Win or lose, Cormier (22-2, 1 NC) is envisioned to retire from mixed martial arts (MMA) at the summary of UFC 252. With that in mind, let’s hope for definitive summary due to the fact a disqualification, blown contact, or some other strange outcome is very likely to drag this detail on till 2021.
