UFC: Daniel Cormier has a prediction for Stipe vs Cain – no prizes for guessing who wins

Light heavyweight champion Cormier took on then heavyweights champ Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight belt in a super fight at UFC 226 back in July. Miocic being the bigger man, stepped inside the octagon as a heavy favorite. However, Cormier pulled out a huge upset as he shut Miocic’s lights in the first round courtesy of a knockout. Cormier, however, took another dig at Miocic using some ‘MMA Math’. (via Twitter):

Cormier, who believes Velasquez is a better fighter than him, claims Velasquez will defeat Miocic even more brutally than he did.

Cormier is slated to fight former UFC champ, Brock Lesnar, next. However considering Lesnar’s messed up a situation with the USADA, Cormier verbally ensured that Miocic would be the replacement if the fight does not materialize.
