Stipe Miocic has hinted Dana White does not respect him after the heavyweight champion snubbed the UFC president at UFC 220.

The baddest man on the planet set a new record in the heavyweight division by halting the Francis Ngannou hype train in its tracks on Saturday in Boston.

White and the UFC seemed to be backing Ngannou in the fight, judging by the amount of promotion behind the Cameroon-born killer, but Miocic dominated the challenger over five rounds.
