    DC, you DO owe him what you said you would give him. Lesnar isn't happening! Honor YOUR words, with action! Stipe is saving his health/body for the same opportunity that he gave you, and that YOU said you would return. You should be able to understand that, since you claim that injury is currently preventing you from fighting. So now his title hopes are on hold, just as if he was injured over another opponent. It's real simple. He's #1.
    If you thought you could beat Jones, you'd be saying you deserve a shot at 205 right now.. only you'd be wrong, again!

    He's scared as hell of Stipe. He knows he didn't win because he's better than the GOAT. He won because Stipe lost, the moment he underestimated DC. DC knows that wouldn't be the case this time.

    Eyepoke Gate. only way DC can beat Stipe is to cheat.
    Round 1
    4:21 DC starts throwing open hands toward face
    3:09 3 illegal back to the head hits by DC and Ref warns him
    2:47 throws open hand but doesnt connect
    2:39 Ref warns DC "keep your fingers in"
    2:36 DC throws open hand to face anyways
    2:32 DC throws open hand on Stipe face
    2:09 Commentator Jon Anik mentions Stipe has swollen eye
    2:09 Ref warns DC about keeping is fingers in
    2:08 DC pokes Stipe eyes again
    2:06 DC throws fingers to Stipe eyes again
    2:06 Ref again warns DC about keeping his fingers in
    1:51 DC swings with open hand toward Stipe eyes
    1:50 DC hits Stipe with open hand
    1:48 DC finger poke to Stipe head
    1:44 DC more fingers to Stipe head
    1:43 DC throws fingers to face
    1:34 DC lunges foward trying to poke Stipe Eyes but misses
    1:14 DC pokes stipes eyes again and Ref Stops fight to check on Stipe
    1:14 Ref tells DC "ive warned you 3 times already"
    Reply and crowd reacts as they see DC intentionally poking Stipe Eyes
    1:08 Ref again tells DC keep your hands closed
    1:05 Commentator Jon Anik says Ref has warned DC again about keeping his fingers in
    :33 DC throws open hand on Stipe face and his fingers are deep in
    :31 DC clinches and as letting go hits Stipe to drop him for TKO


    Funny How Dominic Cruz and Joe Rogan NEVER make a comment or discuss the eye poking even when the reply was showing only Jon Anik mentions it. They stay quiet. How pathetic!!!

    Avoiding to defend the only tittle he earned; instead of getting the Stipe fight....where the champ champ at?

    Cormier knows that Stipe comes out stronger in second fights. He doesn't want any of that!

    Now you're you're being honest you do cheat and best examples of you cheating with when you knocked out Stipe miocic you know when you broke your fingers ramming in down his eyeball sockets and blinding him and that's how you did your knockout. So I'm glad you're old school and you're admitting it not everybody cheats like you and that's why you should have been disqualified in that fight you didn't just ran him down his eyeball sockets once I think you did it like 9 10 11 12 times and the referee kept calling you out for it but he did not do anything to you about it. I think it was all pre-planned and I think the referee was paid off and I think that Kenny Florian and other monsters and people of the USA were told by Dana White that if you see Daniel Cormier poke Stipe miocic in the eyes and win the fight that way that you better not say anything about it after the fight ordering the fight or I will fire all of you and I think Dana White told all of them that because he did not want Stipe miocic in the UFC any longer. So thanks for being honest and tell us all how you cheat because we already seen it

    He's not heavyweight champion not a true heavyweight champion. He cheated so quit praising Daniel Cormier he is not all that he's a cheater. He cheats to win fights and he would not have won that fight with Stipe miocic chick if he wouldn't have broke his fingers fighting that man. She Blinded him when he ran his fingers down his eyeball sockets breaking his fingers so that tells you how hard he pushed his fingers into his eyeballs. Are you people that's selfish that you won't put it out there that this is why he will not fight Stipe miocic because he knows Stipe miocic will win and he will not Daniel Cormier out because Daniel Cormier cannot cheat like that again. So quit praising this guy he is no heavyweight champion he is a cheater. I believe Daniel Cormier cheated actor before he got knocked out by Jon Jones because I think that he helped tank John Jones drink somehow. I truly believe that I think Daniel Cormier is a snake and he is a liar and he is no true champion.

    One more thing Daniel Cormier you don't want to fight Stipe miocic because you want to try to break his record for title defenses and you know if you fight him you automatically forfeit that record because he will beat you. So therefore you will pick opponents like you just did and you will pick Brock Lesnar because you know you can beat him and you will pick somebody else and then somebody else so that way you will say I'm the longest running champion. However if you really believe that that you're the best then fight Stipe miocic are you scared? I say yes you are why are you scared? Because this time you know you cannot see because everybody will see it for what it is and when you cannot cheat because you've been called out on it why so many people especially me that you know you will lose that fight. The reasons that you do not want to fight Stipe miocic are that you cannot cheat again in the fight and if you don't fight him and you fight all these other guys that you know you can be you want to try to break Stipe miocic record of the longest running heavyweight champ and the most important thing is that you know if you fight Stipe miocic and don't cheat you will not only not to be the longest reigning champ heavyweight champ in the UFC but he will beat you. I firmly believe that because God has told me as much. You will lose because you cheated in the last fight and you won't be able to cheat in this fight and therefore the wrong that you did in the last fight will not conquer through to the second fight and he will knock you out.

    Jones Never poked you in the eyes to cheat and he beat you fair and square. You cheated to win that fight so you can sit up there and say this or say that and try to make yourself feel better but you know it the announcer or the guy interview and you knows it the referee knew it everybody in the UFC new it I know it and God knows it. You cheated and you sir forgive me but are a liar. You did not win that fight because he dropped his hand. You won that fight because you broke your fingers blinding him so he could not see that punch coming. So quit dodging him quit lying about him and give him the rematch and keep your fingers out of his eyeballs and he will beat you. I believe that wholeheartedly and I believe that God will show you that cheating does not conquer in the end. Remember when Jon Jones kicked you and knock you out? Stipe miocic will knock you out with his fist just like you did him. There's only one thing though Stipe miocic will not cheat and stab you in the eyeballs so hard that you cannot see and let's admit you stabbed him hard enough to break your fingers. Quit making excuses give him the fight and fight him fair and square and he will beat you. I have that on good authority and the good authority that I'm talking about is God. Wrong will never Champion over right and you were wrong for what you did and a fight with Stipe miocic will make that wrong a right. Daniel Cormier you know if you fight this man fair and square with no eye pokes and no kicks to the groin he will beat you and he will knock you out.
