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

Lewis got a couple of shots in early but Cormier took him down.

Derrick faces Daniel Cormier on a loaded UFC 230 fight card that also includes the return of "All-American" Chris Weidman, the Welterweight that bested MMA legend Anderson Silva on two separate occasions. Cormier said. "Thank you for blessing me Dana White, I thought I was just getting one".

Cormier, 39, won with a rear naked choke in the second round in a routine victory in NY.

Daniel Cormier made sure he'd be leaving Madison Square Garden in New York City with at least one title still around his waist.

American Cormier controlled the bout from the start, grabbing a takedown after barely a minute in the first round.

Lesnar is now suspended by USADA having failed a drugs test after his octagon return against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016, but the WWE star is eligible to fight again in January 2019, leading to rumours a fight between him and DC will be targeted for the new year.

He was bold and was rewarded. "I don't think there is any reason to try to do something really big like bring in another striker". Arsenal kept at it and got a point. "The result is a good result for how we did in 90 minutes, when we were losing", he said.

Emery urges Arsenal to 'write a new history' ahead of Liverpool clash
Lichsteiner does provide one backup but the other full-back position might need to be filled by Granit Xhaka. But Milner's goal stemmed from one of only a handful of chances Liverpool mustered in the second half.

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

With the the victory, Cormier has become the first man to defend both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight belts.

"Bring that belt if you're going to come to my house".

On a possible heavyweight fight: "I would fight "DC" at heavyweight, but I feel I have nothing to prove".

The fighters joked for a while before Lewis could finally find a reason to dislike Cormier: "He disrespected that Popeye's chicken on a commercial a few years ago". Cormier has said that his next fight would be his retirement fight because he doesn't want to fight after he turns 40 in March. 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.
