Matches to Make After UFC 230

Matches to Make After UFC 230

Cormier will be stripped of his light heavyweight title and the 205-pound crown will go to the victor of the Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson bout at UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas.

UFC 230 took place at Madison Square Garden.

Cormier called out Lesnar for a blockbuster heavyweight bout.

The victory keeps up Cormier's remarkable unbeaten career record at heavyweight, which now stands at 15 fights, and moves him to 22-1 overall, with 1 no contest.

Cormier slapped a pair of championship belts over his shoulders and celebrated UFC history, before calling out the UFC legend-turned wrestler, Lesnar.

Lewis had a size and reach advantage, but Cormier set the tempo and took Lewis down at will before submitting him in the second round.

After an electric undercard, it was down to the "Double Champ" and the challenger with nothing to lose, closing out the show with the heavyweight title hanging in the balance.

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. Cormier landed a knee, then dragged Lewis to the canvas again, taking side control.

Not long ago, during a backstage encounter, Derrick Lewis jokingly scolded his upcoming opponent Daniel Cormier for disrespecting Popeyes Chicken, which is apparently his favorite fast food chain to eat.

Cormier, who also holds the light heavyweight crown, made quick work of an overmatched fellow American Lewis with a rear naked choke in the middle of the second round. Lewis immediately jumps back up to his feet but remains pressed against the cage by the champion.

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

"It's history baby! Like my man Jon Anik said, history in the making, Daniel Cormier, one of the greatest of all-time".

"Everything he did had unbelievable power, what a guy Derrick Lewis is". "I truly do appreciate him. It was an honour to share the octagon with him". He broke his right hand in the Miocic fight and had been posturing for a potential fight against former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. "There are no surprises with me".

Round two of tonight's UFC 230 headliner begins and Daniel Cormier starts things off with a kick to the body. "If you have a puncher's chance, that's not enough".

He just needs one punch, and even if we've said that before all-too-recently, that doesn't mean it's impossible. "Derrick is good, but he's not at that level yet".
