Daniel Cormier responds to claims that he is biased toward Islam Makhachev

In the world of combat sports, it is natural to see people praising their teammates and talking about them as winners. However, Daniel Cormier is especially criticized for this, which is understandable if we consider that he is the official UFC commentator and that he has been known for his comments that used to really anger the fans and the fighting community.

Likewise, Cormier now praised Makhachev because he is also part of the AKA Hall of Fame, but DC and Khabib have been great friends for years. It seems that DC did not listen to the criticism, so he added a dose of objectivity, and said that Charles Oliveira has all the tools to beat Islam Makhachev: “I do believe that Do Bronx has the style and the ability to fight and beat Islam Makhachev.

I have always said that. But it’s almost like people want me to go and kind of crap on my friend”. “I am not gonna crap on my friend to make you feel better. I believe and I am confident that he can win the fight and become the champion but I do recognize that this is by far the most difficult challenge that Islam Makhachev has ever had in his entire UFC career”.

Cormier said on the recent episode of DC&RC. Although he has already said many times that he openly supports Makhachev in this fight, the UFC still put him as a commentator at that event. We will find out on Saturday whether we will again see a commentary disaster like in the match between Blachowicz and Adesanya.

Charles Oliveira was chasing a money fight with Conor McGregor

Charles Oliveira's pursuit of money fights disappointed Islam Makhachev "For me, this is embarrassing when UFC lightweight champion asks [for] someone like Nate Diaz or Conor McGregor.

Conor Mcgregor, who won five years ago – nobody remembers when these guys win some fights. He tried to go Diaz or McGregor, but he forgot my name. And when they asked about me, he said he needs money or something like this, but when he fought Dustin [Poirier] or Justin Gaethje, he didn’t think about money."
