UFC 230: Daniel Cormier challenges Brock Lesnar for UFC and WWE titles

Daniel Cormier On Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones: 'The Mega Fight Is Jones & I'

Whether Lewis eats some Popeyes before his fight with Cormier at UFC 230 remains to be seen. I have nothing to prove against Daniel Cormier.

Cormier slapped a pair of championship belts over his shoulders and celebrated UFC history, before calling out the UFC legend-turned wrestler, Lesnar. "I knew right off the bat I was gonna have a tough time getting in on him and landing shots". "It's history and Daniel Cormier is one of the best of all-time".

17,011 spectators attended the event at Madison Square Garden in New York City generating gate sales totaling $2,841,718.68.

Daniel Cormier became the first man to successfully defend titles in two different weight-classes with a dominant victory over Derrick Lewis.

It was a slick finish for Cormier, who locked in a rear-naked choke and Lewis coudln't fight it. And with wins in nine of his last ten bouts, with seven of those victories coming by knockout, it's clear that Lewis is risky on fight night.

Cormier (22-1, 1 no-contest) had a quick takedown in the first and turned in a dominant yet boring effort to easily take the round.

For the second time in as many appearances at MSG, Chris Weidman was finished, falling to Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza via TKO in the third round in the co-main event.

He was still ready to rumble.

Assuming Cormier finds a way to win, his next fight will likely come down to two possible opponents: Brock Lesnar or Jon Jones.

'If you come in here with a puncher's chance, it's not enough.

Lesnar won the Universal Championship this past Friday at Crown Jewel by defeating Braun Strowman in under four minutes.

Speaking on "Busted Open Radio" recently, Cormier talked about his confrontation with Lesnar.

UFC President Dana White has said he wanted a Lesnar-Cormier bout signed for next year, a showcase that would surely be the biggest ever for heavyweights. Three years I've been the light-heavyweight champion because this dude can't stay out of trouble. Now with his suspension served, the path is clear for Lesnar to return.
