Daniel Cormier retains his UFC heavyweight title with win over Derrick Lewis

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

Daniel Cormier has lit the fuse for a blockbuster heavyweight showdown with Brock Lesnar after a historic win at UFC 230.

"It's history, baby", Cormier shouted following the win.

"Two belts for each shoulder!" Cormier said. "Thank you for blessing me Dana White, I thought I was just getting one". "It's history and Daniel Cormier is one of the best of all-time".

Less than a month later, he was tabbed to challenge for the belt in the main event of Saturday's return to Madison Square Garden.

The dominating performance put Cormier up big early but Lewis refused to go away when the second round started while he uncorked a couple of bombs just trying to land the knockout shot on the heavyweight champion.

Quickly passing his opponent's defense, Cormier took the back and immediately locked up a rear naked choke and within a split second it was clear that Lewis wasn't breaking free.

Winfrey did not mention Pence or the frequent GOP broadsides about "Hollywood" outsiders. If elected, she would be the first black woman elected governor in the United States.


Cormier exerted his authority from the outset, with most of the opening action confined to the ground after the champ secured a takedown against a disappointing Lewis at the first attempt.

For those of you that missed the news, Cormier has a tryout coming up with WWE because Fox wants SmackDown Live to be more sports and less comedy and they really like Cormier.

"Brock Lesnar... when you come, bring that brand new WWE title too", he told Joe Rogan after the bout. "I'm excited and I feel ready". Let's go! Let's go, Brock!

For all of the fear surrounding Derrick Lewis' big right hand, UFC two-division champion Daniel Cormier made sure not to give him a chance to use it. The WWE superstar won the UFC heavyweight title in remarkable fashion back in 2008 in only his fourth professional fight when he stopped UFC legend Randy Couture at UFC 91. Lesnar is still serving a suspension imposed by USADA until January of 2019. He will hold the light heavyweight title only until former foe Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson fight for the title later this year.

"The Black Beast" slips to 21-6 overall (with 1 no contest), and saw a three-fight win streak snapped.
