Daniel Cormier Submits Derrick Lewis To Defend His Heavyweight Title

Daniel Cormier Trolls

The duo first met at UFC 165 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with "The Mauler" pushing Jones unlike anyone had pushed him to that point in his career and perhaps since.

"Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that new WWE title", Cormier said.

Sure, he promised his family he'd retire when he turned 40, but people break promises all the time. Brock Lesnar, the former UFC champion who has been earning his keep in the world of professional wrestling recently, is likely to challenge the victor.

"Obviously, I was a little disappointed not getting the title fight", Weidman told MMAWeekly. I respected him too much the first time we fought.

The other option, of course, is Jon Jones, who has beaten Cormier twice. They first met for the light heavyweight title in January 2015, with Jones winning a unanimous decision. In a comical moment from the UFC 230 open workouts yesterday, Lewis was asked what he would be eating before entering the Octagon on Saturday.

For the longest time, UFC 230 didn't officially have a main event for what has now turned out to be one of the bigger shows of the year in the top media market in the country.

The two rivals finally met again in the Octagon in July 2017 at UFC 214.

Gustafsson took umbrage with Jones' take on the fight. But Jones was more popular and Cormier's reign as the light heavyweight champ during Jones' absences wasn't validated until he defeated Miocic.

Chances are, he'll have one last fight after Saturday in which he can continue to secure his legacy as one of the greatest athletes to ever step into the octagon.

"It was insane in the ring, but when I got to the back I was like, holy smokes, we are going to make a s**t ton of money because look, Brock Lesnar is a special attraction". It hasn't always been good.

"I believe that if I didn't go through stuff that I went through in my past, I wouldn't be as successful like I am now here today".

Before campaigning in the heavyweight division in various MMA promotions, Derrick Lewis had to endure a three-year prison bid for beating a Ku Klux Klan member that accosted him with a shotgun.

The most compelling of all is by far the main event of the evening, as "DC" takes on "The Black Beast" just 28 days removed from his knock out of Alexander Volkov at UFC 229. It's so easy to say, 'This guy's one of the greatest and this guy's one of the greatest, ' but they never fight each other. "He's a smart guy and he isn't tricking me".

"I win the fight, I go, 'Brock, you obviously wanted it. Get your a** in here if you wanted it.' Now, I didn't know he was going to push me".
