Daniel Cormier Baffled Over People's Expectations Going Into UFC 220

Daniel Cormier Baffled Over People's Expectations Going Into UFC 220”

Thursday afternoon on the UFC 220 media conference call, all four men had the opportunity to share their thoughts on their opponents and how their upcoming encounters are going to play out, and while some were more verbose and talkative than others, the biggest takeaway is that these are two massive fights that you do not want to miss. The monster who is walking into the Octagon in a week against Stipe Miocic, a fight the heavyweight champion says himself that the UFC wants him to lose.

"There's a certain thing to me, that for some reason people see these guys as true threats to me and that they can just beat me", he continued. His past two UFC bouts have lasted just over a minute combined, and Cormier understands that generates excitement. Even the fight against Alistair Overeem, I was already prepared for five rounds because I knew I was going to have Stipe [Miocic] after that. "I'm the guy that's going to change the heavyweight division, who is going to beat Stipe on January 20 and bring more excitement to the heavyweight division which for a long time was nearly forgotten".

Oezdemir's highlight reel might have the flashier finishes, but Cormier doesn't see any scenario in which he's added to it. You got guys like 'Rumble, ' who was knocking everyone out. When a person isn't on the level, they get exposed, very quickly. "I don't really hit that hard; I think it was just those guys running into my fists and then falling and a lot of that". This game is about much more.

"I've never been in that level but I always train for that level". I think I had [more] pressure on my last fight against Alistair [Overeem] than I do for this one. The title clash will headline UFC 220. While the result was overturned after Jones tested positive for turinabol, the stench of the losses remains.

Jones' future is now uncertain, but regardless, Cormier is unable to avoid questions about his rival.

"My career is so closely tied to those fights (with Jones) that I do need to win in dominant fashion", Cormier said. But my goal is always to go out and dominate, and that's what I've done for the vast majority of my career. "He's a great fighter - he's super-tough - and he's fought some really good guys, but he hasn't faced anyone like me yet". I know I have everything to win this fight. "I didn't get the job done". But because I lost, I've got to carry that burden.
