The former heavyweight champion, Daniel cormier, wants to beat Stipe Miocic in the third fight between the two on August 15, in the star of the UFC 252. With the fight scheduled at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, boasting a smaller octagon than usual, DC hopes to take advantage of the dimensions to take advantage of its Olympic fight against the reigning champion. Thus, he returns to the contests to put his name on top once again.
“I love fighting at UFC Apex. That old leg is going to be on my forehead to be grabbed. I’m going to do like Curtis Blaydes. If you want to see 25 minutes of fighting standing, you will not get it. I hope Stipe used his wrestling shoes, because with a small octagon, he tackles one leg and wrestles. It is what it is. Excuse me ”, was what the former champion communicated in an interview with ESPN a few weeks ago, making clear what he thinks about the octagon where he will fight.
“I think the winner of this fight will stay with Jones,” said Javier Méndez, who is DC’s coach at American Kickboxing Academy. “I think that, because Jones showed interest in heavy weights. If Jones showed no interest in that, that’s already different. Uncle Dana is going to put a lot of money in DC, he just won’t let it go. DC loves money. I think it will happen, ”he explained. This was what ended up denying the contender for the title.
“I loved every part of my career, but it’s better not more, if I continue to try my luck, eventually someone is going to hit me. I am 41 years old and I am having a baby. I faced everyone what I could when I was starting. Afterwards, fight all the people you wanted to face as a champion. I faced all of them. I managed to face the best that the UFC already had, and I never thought to do what I already did, “DC communicated in an interview with Combate.
At the same time, Daniel He was also forceful with these words: “It was very stressful, very difficult. I love fighting, but when I was younger the camps didn’t seem as exhausting as they do today. I trained for three or four fights a year, most of the time. It didn’t seem like it is now, now we did a lot more work. It was exactly what he needed to do to get ready for Saturday night’s fight. I think we get that. “
“He is a great fighter. He has a very good boxing, knows how to use distance, has phenomenal stamina and has a champion mentality. He is a very difficult person to face and you have to prepare. I’m just going to live in the moment. I’m going to live in the moment and take advantage of the belt around my waist one more time. That has already happened several times and I can wait until Saturday for it to happen for the last time, “he concluded. Cormier.
