UFC 230: Daniel Cormier stuffs Derrick Lewis in first heavyweight title defense

  • Daniel Cormier Jon Jones

Lesnar became the WWE Universal Champion last Friday at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view, and given the fact that Lesnar isn't likely to defend his title any time soon, he could still be a WWE champion by the time a fight with Cormier materializes.

In a clinical performance which badly exposed the gap in class and technical ability between the two fighters, Cormier made the first defense of his heavyweight title on Saturday via second-round submission in the main event of UFC 230.

From there, Cormier climbed around to Lewis' back and quickly sunk in a rear-naked choke, clamping down on the squeeze and forcing "The Black Beast" to tap out.

Daniel Cormier holds his belts after defeating Derrick Lewis by submission during the second round of a heavyweight mixed martial arts bout at UFC 230, early Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in NY.

White ranked Cormier as one of the all-time greats in MMA and as a person outside of the Octagon. "I knew right off the bat I was gonna have a tough time getting in on him and landing shots". Oh boy, look at that! "Like my man Jon Anik says, 'History in the making".

The defending champion, 39, had headed into the bout as strong favorite and with a remarkable 14-fight unbeaten career record at heavyweight. "If you have a puncher's chance, that's not enough".

The two sides now head to Kolkata for the first of three Twenty20 internationals on November 4. Jason Holder fought a lone battle for some time before being dismissed by Khaleel Ahmed.

"It is kind of insane that it's happening, but really I'm just going into it like it's another fight". "I feel like being a WWE champion, too".

Cormier will now reportedly fight former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in 2019.

Jordan Rinaldi topped Jason Knight in the prelim main event on FOX Sports 1, as Sijara Eubanks, Sheymon Moraes and Lyman Good all earned wins.

After weathering Weidman's jab and heavy damage to his nose in the first round, the Brazilian steadily exerted himself in a frantic contest, ending the action midway in the third round with a huge, short-range right-hand to Weidman's head which put the American down before referee Dan Miragliotta stepped in.

Souza rebounded from a loss to Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 224 and did it with a busted nose. "Nah, it's a walk in the Garden", Adesanya said.
