“I have no idea what he was talking about ‘we had a company conversation,’ I had no idea about the Brock thing until literally right before I walked out for the fight so he’s an idiot,” Miocic told Ariel Helwani. “One minute he says I’m deserving and ‘If I don’t fight Brock, he’ll get the fight,’ and then he’s like ‘No, you gotta work your way up like everyone else. He’s like a woman when they want to go out to eat dinner but they have no idea what they want to go eat but they say they want to go eat somewhere but they change their mind. It’s just never-ending.”
If he thought UFC 226 was a “shit show,” he should see what Olive Garden looks like on a Saturday night in my neck of the woods. It’s amazing what free breadsticks and bottomless salad bowls will do to a person’s dignity in this country.
After coughing up his title in last July’s headliner, Miocic refused to fight unless it was a rematch against Cormier, probably based on his record-setting reign as heavyweight champion. But “DC” argued their fight wasn’t hard and they made no money, so bringing in Lesnar was a more lucrative option for both the Olympian and the promotion.
