After the athlete provokes Belal Muhammad | and deny a duel against Ian Machado Garry, the commentator sent a sincere message and asked that actions like these be avoided.

“Colby said he thinks Belal Muhammad | he is stuck in his ranking and does not deserve a title fight. Come on, Colby. Colby can't say or try to determine who will fight for the title now, because of the way he lost to Leon edwards and the way he fought. It seems he is not willing to fight with Ian Gary. I think he should stay away and not say much until another fight comes his way,” Cormier said on his Twitter channel. YouTube.

“I don’t know what the hesitation is to fight with Ian Gary. I don't know if he just doesn't want to fight in the rankings again. But I think he needs to recognize that, in this situation, that's more or less what he's going to get now. He didn’t fight well (against Edwards),” he concluded.
