Daniel Cormier Talked to Stipe Miocic to Make Sure Their Money Was Right

It’s the fight everyone is talking about right now.

In June, Daniel Cormier will challenge Stipe Miocic for the UFC heavyweight title. It’s out of nowhere, it’s…

“I did speak with [Stipe Miocic before the fight was done]. I spoke with Stipe, I called Stipe. Obviously, you know, great guy, I got to spend some time with him, fantastic champion, just a pillar of his community. I can’t say enough good things about Stipe Miocic. With that being said, I told Stipe for $500,000, I’m not fighting Stipe Miocic. I threw out a big number and said for that number, I’m fighting Stipe Miocic. He goes, ‘I f-cking love you.’ That’s what he said. I said for the right numbers we need to do this. His wife is in the back going, ‘Yes, DC!'”
