Stipe Miocic needs Daniel Cormier rematch, censures Brock Lesnar for raging into confine

https://image.cleveland.com/home/cleve-media/syndication/main/img/ent_impact_home/photo/24693198-standard.jpgCrisp off being stripped of his heavyweight belt, Stipe Miocic requested a quick rematch with current UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and called Brock Lesnar's appearance in the confine following the Miocic-Cormier battle on July 7 "discourteous" while talking with ESPN.

Miocic lost his UFC heavyweight title to Cormier on July 7

Miocic, 35, had effectively safeguarded his title three times, and hadn't lost since 2014, preceding being thumped out in the first round at UFC 226. He was determined he merits another shot at Cormier, who unintentionally jabbed Miocic in the eye without further ado before the knockout.

I got out the division. I guarded it more than anybody, and you're going to reveal to me I don't merit an opportunity to get it back? Leave. Kiss my a– on the off chance that you don't think I merit that.

Miocic said he trusts UFC acknowledges a prompt rematch and included he would not acknowledge some other battles.

Brock Lesnar entered the enclosure after the battle

Miocic had wanted to request a rematch in the post-coordinate meeting before Lesnar ventured in, he told ESPN. Lesnar is suspended until 2019 because of a medication approach infringement.

I thought they would talk with me [after the fight] and I would request a rematch. At the point when Brock came in, I stated, 'I'm gone, I needn't bother with this carnival.' How would you be able to give a person a title shot who hasn't battled in more than two years, is suspended, and his last battle is a no-challenge since he was taking PEDs?

Despite the fact that UFC president Dana White apologized, Miocic called Lesnar's passage "a s—appear" and "impolite." Miocic said White's conciliatory sentiment "didn't mean anything."

While Miocic (18-3) requests a rematch, it creates the impression that Cormier (21-1) has his sights set on Lesnar (5-3) when Lesnar is qualified.
