According to Stipe Miocic’s management, the UFC’s heavyweight champ has no deal in place to fight Cain Velasquez, as recently reported.
But, since then, MMA Fighting has spoken with Miocic’s management, who said the heavyweight is still holding out for more money. Further, Miocic’s management reportedly said there’s been no serious talks about the fighter’s next bout.
Earlier this year Miocic relayed that he was unhappy about the fact that Alistair Overeem makes more money than him. Miocic KO’d Overeem last September. Junior dos Santos, who Miocic stopped in May, was also paid more than the heavyweight champ.
