    Cormier did hit him with everything. Even some eye pokes. Why is every acting like he didn't try to poke Stipes eye out. And it happened in both fights and it was intentional.

    For real DC is a cheater man you see how many eye pokes he did against ePay literally you can't count that as accidental eye pokes just look at him in slow motion he was intentionally poking me in the eye and then following up with a writer left hand depending on which I he poked he did that in the first fight why you think sleep aid didn't see that punch coming I'm not taking anything away from DC he was a great Champion but he's a cheater

    This interviewer obviously does not know the MMA world. If he did; he would know that Dana White and the entire crew at Zuffa are not fans of Stipe.

    Dana, if you're listening. Have the runner up give the 1st interview and end the night off with the winners speech. Never understood that.

    more than you can say about Ngannou and lewis who should have been sacked for their disgraceful arranged non fight, i was so shocked to see that farce they should be made to fight again without pay or both be sacked from the UFC,
    nagannou definitely does not deserve to fight for the belt and neither does lewis who farcically won on the night although no punches or any sign of a real fight took place

    We truly are reliving the gladiator ages this Dana makes me think of the Dominus of Maximus quite odd it all feels the same.
    People are now making videos of fights to the death as if it was nothing....
    Stipe and DC faces looked like they went into a torture room.

    Correction; as much we respect and love DC , he isn’t the greatest to ever do it. In order to be considered such, you need to defend your belt with top contenders more than a couple times.... history says differently; so sassy from Dana....

    Whenever DC gets in trouble he stiffens his fingers and jabs his hands forward acting like he is trying to keep distance while really hoping he lands an eye poke.. clear as day dirty shit. He poked stipe again but this time it didn't matter cause stipe got mad.

    DC shouldn't be ashamed to losing to a great clean ( no steroid jones) fighter

    • jon plasterer
      jon plasterer 23 days ago

      No DC should be ashamed that he got caught cheating against this man twice and the first time he stole the man's belt and the second time he got it nihilate it even though he cheated...
      DC should definitely be ashamed though

    I have no witty comment, I'll just say it how I see it. Brett is a terrible reporter, and a complete tool. I would have rather heard Dana respond to a Q&A printed from the internet. Dana should have asked, who is your back-up reporter? Just in case you're having a bad night..

      @Tiramisu #1P4PGOAT it was obviously part of the plan...
      DC and Herb ought to be kicked out of MMA if you ask me.
      Absolute scumbags man. Totally intentional.

      Yeah round 2 was the most blatant eye pokes in the history of the UFC. Jon Jones had to take some notes. At some point DC was marching forward with both hands and fingers extended right in Miocic's face constantly poking his eyes out. The cunt Herb Dean never called the extended fingers in the face which is 100% a foul. But he had the gall to call out Miocic in the 3rd round for probing a jab with a slightly opened hand. Herb is the most overrated ref in the buisness. He's not Mazagatti but he's very close.

    If DC barely won against Stipe, like 29-28 29-28 28-29; and Stipe KOed DC in 15 seconds... there would be no trilogy...
    But, they were both awesome, tactical, crazy KOs... so who exactly is on top? Not sure...
    Waiting for trilogy.

    I really like Brett Okamoto. Maybe because somehow he humanizes Dana yet maintains a high IQ and professional demeanor. Okamoto's also clearly a real fan of the sport. I'm interested in what questions are on his mind. AMAZING night of fights, truly and a fun interview.

    Stipe should NOT give DC a rematch right away. DC made Stipe wait, now it’s his turn to wait. If he’d given Stipe the rematch right away instead of fighting Lewis I’d say they should rematch but now the shoes on the other foot, DC needs to wait.

      Nate turns down 98% of the fights they offer him. It's really does Nate want to fight. Same for Nick. Everyone wants to see Nick fight but he wants a big money fight at this point. The irony is he's a big money draw himself.... Put him in with a banger and it's gonna fucking sell.

    the UFC has "champ champ" and some that want to be "champ champ champ" but Nate Diaz is the every-day real man's champ. He is either just like us or just like a best friend we have. Everyone can relate to him. I just hope UFC will recognize him like MOST of the UFC fans recognize him. We all heard the ROAR for him during UFC241 (deafening)!!!
