What have they said?

Dana White, UFC president: "The truth is going into this fight with all the hype, one of these two that wins the fight, definitely goes down as the best heavyweight in UFC history and they’re both candidates.

"If you look at what Stipe has accomplished and Cormier in two different weight classes what this guy has accomplished is one of the greatest of all time."

Cormier: “Because of the coronavirus, I can't even stay in the house with my family.

“I'm interacting with a whole bunch of people from the outside.

“For the vast majority of this camp, since June 30, the last six weeks of my training camp, I've been staying at my old house – we've been essentially staying in a bubble."
