  • Daniel Cormier The Champion

Cormier was feeling great after he flattened Stipe Miocic and won the heavyweight crown.

Cormier got stung by a right hand from Lewis in the second but the champion soon had his opponent back on the canvas, a rear-naked choke finishing the job at 2.14.

Daniel Cormier has set a deadline for his retirement in early 2019, and that means a win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 Saturday night in NY might leave room for just one more fight in his career.

Derrick Lewis is fighting Daniel Cormier at MSG for the UFC heavyweight championship. but it wouldn't have been possible if he didn't spend over 3 years in prison.

Cormier told Brock Lesnar to bring the Universal Title to their fight next year in his post-fight interview.

Cormier's last fight ended with theatrics after he called Lesnar into the cage, and Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest while the fighters traded insults to hype a potential future bout.

Roger Federer explains why he is not the greatest player ever
Djokovic, who had complained of flu-like symptoms this week, was proud and relieved to repel a wonderful challenge from Federer. Twelve straight holds would send the first set into a tiebreak, which Djokovic won after Federer squandered a set point.

But with UFC desperate for a worthy main event, Cormier was offered a payday he could not refuse.

"It's massive to me to headline the Garden", Cormier said.

"The Black Beast" slips to 21-6 overall (with 1 no contest), and saw a three-fight win streak snapped. Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jones, the star-crossed former light heavyweight champion who beat him twice. The second bout previous year was changed to a no-contest when Jones failed a doping test that kept him out of the sport for 15 months. Cormier said. "Thank you for blessing me Dana White, I thought I was just getting one".

Lewis earned the shot at the title after beating Alexander Volkov barely a month ago, but his quick return to the octagon failed to pay off after he tapped out in the second round of the clash in NY. Carl's changed its handle to "Daniel Cormier fan account" and tweeted, "DMs are open DC let's shake this out".

With a diet of burgers and chicken, Cormier weighed in at a career-high 251.2 pounds for the fight. He also now holds the light heavyweight championship and was presented with two title belts after the fight.
