UFC champs Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier seem to be getting along very nicely with each other. Both shared a friendly relationship in their stint as rival coaches on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ season 27.
However, according to champ Miocic claims that won’t be the case on July 7 when he takes on Daniel Cormier. ‘The baddest man on the planet’ will enter the octagon with mean intentions.
“It’s business”, Miocic told MMAWeekly ahead of his heavyweight title bout with Cormier. “I always want the best for him, but unfortunately, he’s gotta fight me though. It’s business. Like I said, that’s what I signed up for.
“I’m not here to make friends, I’m here to fight.”
Miocic further added that the light heavyweight champion will face a different version of him on July 7.
“I think DC’s an amazing fighter. Heavyweight or light heavyweight, he’s fought the best guys in the world. He’s beat the best guys in the world. He’s fought amazing fighters, top guys, so I know he’s going to bring it July 7,” Miocic said when speaking to MMAWeekly in Cleveland.
“But like I said, he hasn’t fought anything like me. He has never seen anything like me yet. He’ll find out.”
