Daniel Cormier Dominates & Submits Derrick Lewis In Round 2

One of the most genuine and honest people in sports, Cormier heaped praised upon Lewis' power, but it was never a factor.

Cormier, the UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion, submitted Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230 Saturday night, earning his first successful title defense.

"If Derrick Lewis wins eat for free from 2-4 on Sunday" at Popeyes on 9120 Barker Cypress Rd, Cypress, TX 7743.

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

"I've got into the octagon into this quicker before I made it into UFC", Lewis said. The tapout followed soon after. "If you have a puncher's chance it's not good enough".

Daniel Cormier (39 years of age) went on to say that the last-minute injury served as a reminder that he is getting old.

It was a surprising pairing, but one that carried a ton of intrigue, as Lewis has shown that he's never out of a fight and Cormier's competitive instincts propelled him into the cage with the risky knockout artist when many others would have opted to remain on the sidelines until 2019. "I'm excited and I feel ready".

"Going into that fight, we knew he was gonna be long and was gonna be a tough opponent", Lewis said of Volkov, who brought a six-fight winning streak into the UFC 229 matchup.

Cormier's record moves to 22-1-0, plus one no-contest. Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest while the fighters traded insults to hype a potential future bout. Brunson pressured Adesanya and worked to get the fight to the ground but couldn't control the Nigerian.

Daniel Cormier has been in the minds of pro wrestling fans ever since he and Brock Lesnar had the confrontation inside the Octagon at UFC 226.

Cormier was a bit of a surprise main eventer in a card that has been shuffled because of injuries and the dire need to find a quality main event at MSG.

Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza connected on a flush right hand to the temple to knock out Chris Weidman in the third round in a battle of two fighters who both badly needed a victory. Weidman appeared to be in control of the fight through the first two frames.

In other middleweight action, rising star Israel Adesanya remained unbeaten by knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round.
