    “After his health is cleared, we hope to have Stipe back in competition this year in a fight that makes sense and against an opponent that Stipe has not beaten before,” Walter (Stipe’s manager) said.

    Cormier responds, “I know they’re saying they want something new — well, hell, I wanted something new after I beat him and I gave him a rematch. So it’s only right to do the right thing. You’re honorable, right Stipe? You’re a fireman, you save lives. You do the right thing all the time, right? Do the right thing and give me my rematch.”

    Kinda shitty of Stipe not to give DC the trilogy, especially after Stipe whined “rematch” for a whole year and DC gave him the rematch.

    Edit:

    PS: I’m not a fan of either fighter. I think Stipe handled himself poorly after his loss to DC, and I think DC is a dirty fighter.

    DC would have taken the Brock fight if he had the chance. Can't blame him for that.

    But if Stipe can now make more fighting someone else he has earned the right to.

    daniel was given the LHW title, given a HW title shot, given the title despite his cheating and given an opportunity at brock, and then given a free title defense before he 'gave' stipe his rightful rematch

    cormier doesnt deserve shit, he might get it next, he might have to wait. who cares. he doesnt deserve anything. most overrated career of all time

    I think that's exactly why hes doing it. DC made him wait that year.

    Also I understand why he isnt motivated to fight him again.

    DC starches Stipe inside 2 if they ever fight again.

    Really...

    Stipe is waiting for his health to be cleared because DC intentionally nearly permanently blinded him in one eye.

    Would you give a rematch after you got eyepoked by a guy in both fights?

    This is not remotely true.

    DC didn't give Stipe anything. He flat out said he didn't want the rematch and took a completely pointless gimmie fight with Derrick Lewis of all people. He then sat on the shelf waiting for Brock Lesnar - a guy who was coming off a no-contest PEDS suspension and years of inactivity.

    Stipe was only granted a rematch because the Brock fight fell through.

    DC egregiously poked Stipe in the eye in BOTH fights, this last one requiring surgery. He got over taken and systematically broken down to a TKO, this isn't a fight that requires a rematch. Stipe doesn't owe DC anything, and I'm a big fan of DC.

    Because Stipe deserved a title shot beating Andre Arlovski? LOL

    The irony is palpable

    Ducking him. He doesn't want to go through a war or possibly lose that belt. Who the fuck has Stipe not fought at HW that's even going to give him problems now?

    True. But he did eventually give him a shot and didn't make him wait long. DC wanted that money fight with Lesnar, wouldn't you?!

    Who else is Stipe gonna fight? HW is the oldest most lame division in all of sports! Everyone half decent is 45 years old

    DC won 4 of 5 rounds against Stipe.
    If Stipe deserved a rematch, certainly DC does.

    must the entire heavyweight division bend itself to DC's will strictly to accommodate his constantly pending retirement?
