Stipe Miocic believes he is deserving of a rematch for the Heavyweight title

Miocic who lost his belt to Daniel Cormier at UFC 226 was speaking  to Ariel Helwani.

Speaking on ESPN’s Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show the former champion was in bullish mood when discussing his future plans.

I believe I deserve a rematch. I defended the belt more times than anybody else and I think I deserve a shot quicker than Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar is set to return to the UFC having been officially placed back into the USADA testing pool and made an appearance after Daniel Cormier won the belt.

Miocic confirmed to Helwani that he had been in contact with Dana White.

I talked to Dana. I told him I want a shot. Why give it to someone like Brock Lesnar who is 0-2 and was popped by USADA.

Miocic also stated that a rematch is the only fight that interests him right now and is the only fight he will take in this current time.

I’m not saying I’ll never fight again but the rematch is all I want. I’m confident we can get something done.
