UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic is preparing to headline UFC 226 on July 7, where he will put his belt on the line against light heavyweight titleholder Daniel Cormier in a champion vs. champion superfight.
As big as that bout is, and everyone is asking Miocic about it, there are other issues lingering over the UFC’s winningest heavyweight champion of all time.
For one, why did Miocic decline having UFC president Dana White put the belt around his waist in the Octagon and what’s the status of their relationship? And what about WWE champion and former UFC titleholder Brock Lesnar? There is a plethora of speculation that he will return to the UFC for at least one more fight. What does Miocic think of a Lesnar return and does he want to fight him?
Of course, everyone is still talking about Conor McGregor’s UFC 223 Media Day meltdown in New York, and Miocic is not immune to the chatter about McGregor’s latest shenanigans.
Watch as Miocic talked about all of this and more on ESPN’s Get Up on Tuesday.
