  • Daniel Cormier sits down with ESPN MMA’s Brett Okamoto to talk about his new ESPN+ series, Detail, getting to meet Kobe Bryant in the process. He also discusses fighting past his 40th birthday and his rematch vs. Stipe Miocic at UFC 241, saying if it couldn’t be Brock Lesnar, it had to be Stipe. (6:03) DC says when he started his pre-camp for the bout in August, he was the heaviest he’s ever been in his life due to being unable to do anything while recovering from surgery. (7:08) Okamoto asks about Jon Jones, with Cormier saying if they fight again, it will “cost a lot of money.”✔ For more UFC, sign up for ESPN+ https://plus.espn.com/ufc✔ Get the ESPN App: http://www.espn.com/espn/apps/espn✔ Subscribe to ESPN on YouTube: http://es.pn/SUBSCRIBEtoYOUTUBE✔ Subscribe to ESPN FC on YouTube: http://bit.ly/SUBSCRIBEtoESPNFC✔ Subscribe to NBA on ESPN on YouTube: http://bit.ly/SUBSCRIBEtoNBAonESPN✔ Watch ESPN on YouTube TV: http://es.pn/YouTubeTVESPN on Social Media:► Follow on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/espn► Like on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/espn► Follow on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/espnVisit ESPN on YouTube to get up-to-the-minute sports news coverage, scores, highlights and commentary for NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, College Football, NCAA Basketball, soccer and more.

    As much as I respect Daniel for wanting to go back down to 205, I just don’t wanna see it. The fight is much much much more intriguing at heavyweight

    I like Cormier, but his dismissal of Miocic as a stepping stone to a possible Jones rematch is a big mistake. Miocic is a threat to ANY heavyweight at any time.

    Love DC but Stipe is my guy, DC is a true champion and volunteers his time at high school just a wonderful human being.

    I’m a big Jon Jones fan but I really respect DC for being willing to go back down to 205 just to face adversity.
    He’s a real champion.
