Leave it to good ‘ol DC to stir up some drama on fight night. Recently, Daniel Cormier had a lot to say about something outside of the world of MMA. That’s right, DC was on the ball with the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight and he was certainly not pulling any punches at all with anyone involved in the fight, including the ref!

Daniel Cormier is extra mad right now. As DC claims, the ref slowly counted out what could have been a ten count on Tyson Fury after he was knocked down by Deontay Wilder. DC was so mad about this that he even took it all the way to Twitter to vent it all out.
On Twitter, Daniel Cormier had the following to say about the fight that he feels was fixed in the favor of Tyson: “I agree with @andreward the count was crazy slow! He isn’t supposed to stop counting to tell deontay to go to his corner. #FuryvsWilderIII”
Many disagreed with DC here. As fans poured in, they stated that, yes, a fighter must be neutral in order for a count to go on. In this case, Wilder was not, so the ref had to stop the count to fix this.
Also, Wilder was seen hitting Tyson in the back of the head which DC did not call out.
Allegedly, the count was slow both times that Fury was knocked down. This would prove futile however as Fury won the fight in the 11th round via knockout.
It’s clear why Tyson Fury will go down as one of the GOATS.
