The live event of UFC 269 is right around the corner, Charles Oliveira will defend his lightweight title against Dustin Poirier in the main event, and Amanda Nunes will defend her bantamweight title against Julianna Pena at the co-main event. This is the last pay-per-view of this year, and the card is stacked.
Former bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz will take on Pedro Munhoz in the prelims, and talking to media on the fight week, he called out former two-division champ and fellow commentator Daniel Cormier for not doing his homework for the night, he said, “I watch Anik do so much homework leading up to a fight. Like, people have no idea how much homework, he has to do to be prepared for that, and the most kudos, for me, goes to him. He leads us in the broadcast with how he talks. When it comes to DC, I usually mute it.”
DC confronted Dominick for his statement, and he wasn’t happy with what he said, he believes these kinds of things are discussed in private, and it was wrong of Dom to say it out to the media, “The things we talk about privately, we aren’t supposed to say in public, that’s what you just did. That’s our rule. You say so many things privately that I would never say publicly. You and I say things privately that we would never say publicly,” Cormier said.
Dana White takes a dig at Daniel Cormier and Dominick Cruz’s recent scuffle
Dana White was asked what are his views on DC and Cruz fighting it out, White gave a hilarious reply, said, “I guess DC better do his homework man, he better come out and make Cruz happy.” A lot of people have called out DC for his biased commentary in the past, and unlike those, this was in good spirit.
We hope DC makes the necessary adjustments (pun intended) and be a better commentator altogether. As for Cruz, he ought to be more concerned about his opponent, Munhoz because he is a very skilled fighter, and he is coming off from a loss against Jose Aldo in his last fight, Munhoz wants to be the champ one day, and beating a former champ would catapult his career in the right direction.
