UFC 230: Daniel Cormier Submits Derrick Lewis To Remain Champion

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

The fight was largely one-sided for "DC", who scored multiple takedowns before locking in a fight-ending rear-naked choke. He celebrated with his family in the cage as Lewis trudged out, still in his trunks unlike the last fight that made him a quick star.

Cormier (22-1, 1 NC), who joined Conor McGregor in July by becoming just the second fighter in UFC history to hold two world titles simultaneously, became the first fighter to defend both.

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.

Cormier and Lesnar have been linked to fight each other since they scuffled inside the cage following Cormier's victory over Stipe Miocic earlier this year, and the championship bout seems all but confirmed following a dominant win by Cormier against Derrick Lewis in NY.

On a third fight with Cormier: "There's no reason to grant (Cormier) a fight".

"Brock Lesnar... when you come, bring that brand new WWE title too". Cormier was feeling great after he flattened Stipe Miocic and won the heavyweight crown. Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest while the fighters traded insults to hype a potential future bout.

"When I was on ESPN yesterday, they thought it was absolutely impossible that Derrick Lewis wins this fight", said UFC president Dana White.

"It's history, baby", he told Joe Rogan afterwards.

The tap came at 2:14 into the second round as Cormier jumped up to celebrate the first defense of his heavyweight title.

Last night, Lewis and his team took to social media to reveal that should "The Black Beast" win on Saturday, anyone in and around Cypress, Texas can head down to the local Popeyes to get some free chicken between 2-4 on Sunday. Lewis adds that Cormier did exactly what he expected him to do, but just couldn't capitalize on it.

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. Brunson pressured Adesanya and worked to get the fight to the ground but couldn't control the Nigerian.

Much like attacking a bucket of chicken, Cormier tagged Lewis everywhere: leg, thigh, and then the neck for the decisive blow.
