Daniel Cormier talks about Masvidal
Daniel Cormier has said before that he believes the best approach to requesting a UFC pay raise is to keep discussions private and reach a settlement without going public.
In an interview for ESPN Cormier commented that he never simply said fight but that Masvidal made comments where he indirectly referred to him, stating “no one has been doing it as long as I have been”, asked what did Jorge mean by his comments?

‘If he’s talking about me, I’ve done it like him, if not better. Not just him, I’ve done better than most people in the world, “said Cormier.
He added that if Jorge Masvidal’s comments were to him they just don’t work and that maybe he is talking about those other guys, because that “or like me” part doesn’t work for him.
“I haven’t done it for that long, but in the time I did it, I did it better than anyone who has, if not better than anyone who has,” he said.
