Former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic has let the world know what he feels about the current situation with his fighting company.
Stipe Miocic does not appreciate one bit of the UFC’s behavior ever since he lost his title to Francis Ngannou at UFC 260. Stipe is arguably the greatest heavyweight of all time with the number of title defenses he has had. The heavyweight division seems to be a very busy weight class but sadly everything happening does not involve the former champion which is disrespectful in Stipe’s opinion.
In a recent Instagram post by Asia’s MMA promotion, ONE Championship, Stipe broke his silence on his current UFC situation. The post was an interactive one asking fans who Chatri Sityodtong should sign next to the roster and the former UFC heavyweight champion himself nominated himself. Fans have circulated this on Twitter feeling the champion is not treated right.
Stipe Miocic wants “DC treatment” from the UFC
Before losing his belt to Francis, Stipe defended his belt against former two-division champion Daniel Cormier. DC and Stipe fought a trilogy. DC won the belt from Stipe at UFC 226 and lost it in the second meeting. The UFC made sure they gave DC another opportunity to fight Miocic and get back the belt. Stipe demands the same kind of treatment now that he has lost against Ngannou.
“I shouldn’t have to wait for a winner, I have the most heavyweight title defenses of all time… we’re (Miocic and Ngannou) 1:1 but DC got instant rematches and trilogies against me?” wrote in the comments of ONE Championship. Do you think Stipe is being treated unfairly?
