Before tonight’s UFC 226 card, Daniel Cormier made it clear that by beating heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic he would become the greatest fighter of all-time “no cheaters included”.
Daniel Cormier said Friday at UFC 226 weigh-ins that a victory over Stipe Miocic will make him the best fighter in UFC history. That spot, per Cormier, will not belong to Jones, the former UFC light heavyweight champion. “DC” clearly referenced Jones in his speech with Joe Rogan.
“It means everything,” Cormier sad. “I’ve said it from Day One. When I’m done with this, I will be remembered. And I will be remembered as the greatest fighter to ever step foot in the UFC’s Octagon. No cheaters included. I will be the greatest of all time.”
Cormier made good on his promise and knocked out Miocic in the first round tonight to become a two division champion.
After the fight Cormier called out former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and the two got into a shoving match in the cage.
