Matches to Make After UFC 230

Matches to Make After UFC 230

Cormier vs. Lewis headlined the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Cormier (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC), who successfully defended his heavyweight title Saturday night with a second-round submission of Lewis (21-6 MMA, 12-4 UFC), injured his back in the morning.

Cormier got stung by a right hand from Lewis in the second but the champion soon had his opponent back on the canvas, a rear-naked choke finishing the job at 2.14.

Daniel Cormier almost withdrew from UFC 230 just hours before his scheduled main event title fight with Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis.

On paper, Cormier facing Lesnar would be a bigger fight in terms of paycheck, but getting one more shot to avenge his prior loss to Jones represents a massive legacy fight. "In that cell, you tell yourself a lot of things, you say "I'm going to do better when I get out" ... and the vast majority of guys that do say those things, they never change". Oh boy, look at that! "History in the making, Daniel Cormier, one of the greatest of all time".

Much like attacking a bucket of chicken, Cormier tagged Lewis everywhere: leg, thigh, and then the neck for the decisive blow. Ifyou come in here with a puncher's chance, it's not enough.

As far as Brock's WWE career goes, he's now being advertised for a Champion vs.

So, what do you think about the potential of Brock Lesnar becoming a dual Champion across WWE and UFC and what do you think about the potential of Daniel Cormier stepping into the squared circle and possibly taking the Universal Championship?

"It is kind of insane that it's happening, but really I'm just going into it like it's another fight".

The main event had history, if not the thrills of the earlier bouts. Weidman appeared to be in control of the fight through the first two frames. "I was just happy that the fight was over with".

Souza rebounded from a loss to Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 224 and did it with a busted nose.

Israel Adesanya had a breakout performance with a dominant destruction of veteran Derek Brunson than ran his record to 15-0 and launched him as serious contender in the middleweight division.
