UFC 230 Results: Daniel Cormier Vs Derrick Lewis

Ruben Ruiz
November 4, 2018

"Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that new WWE title", Cormier said while referencing Lesnar becoming WWE Universal champion this past Friday. In fact, Cormier is now the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously and then defend one of them inside the Octagon.

His win in NY could set up a bout with Brock Lesnar, who has not competed inside the octagon for two years.

Lewis earned the shot at the title after beating Alexander Volkov barely a month ago, but his quick return to the octagon failed to pay off after he tapped out in the second round of the clash in NY.

Lewis eventually managed to extract himself, only for Cormier to secure a second takedown and press the advantage by hammering away on the deck. "I feel like being a WWE champion too", Cormier said in a postfight interview with Joe Rogan.

Cormier (21-1, 1 no-contest) fights for now as both the UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champ, though his days as a dual champion are numbered no matter the outcome against Lewis.

Cormier is 40 next March and has previously declared that he wants to retire before he hits that age, meaning one more blockbuster fight is on the cards before he hangs up the gloves. "I don't know why they haven't had Brock talking in years because he is good at it", Cormier said.

A flu vaccine could save your life
People say it'll cut down symptoms by about a day or two, but, of course, if you have influenza, another day of grace is great. This stops air droplets from carrying the virus into other people's airways which is the predominate form of transmission.

Lesnar entered the cage after Cormier knocked Miocic out in the first round, and responded to DC's call out, and the 41-year-old proceeded to shove the newly crowned two-weight champion. Now with his suspension served, the path is clear for Lesnar to return.

Marshman was looking to bounce back after his loss against Antonio Carlos Jr last month, but was denied after three rounds at Madison Square Garden.

Cormier's next challenger will surely give him a better fight than Lewis. Lewis took up mixed martial arts shortly after his release and used his big right hand to ascend to a title shot.

Adesanya flipped off Brunson early in the first round and finished him not much later for the TKO win.

In the co-main event, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza earned a stunning third-round knockout win over hometown favourite Chris Weidman in a fight of the night contender.
