Daniel Cormier retains his UFC heavyweight title with win over Derrick Lewis

However, former heavyweight champion Lesnar seems to be stealing the headlines, as "The Beast" is expected to be present to watch Cormier and Lewis headline UFC 230, staged at Madison Square Garden.

After prison, Lewis got work as a tow truck driver. before being convinced to take up MMA.

Cormier (22-1, 1 NC), who joined Conor McGregor in July by becoming just the second fighter in UFC history to hold two world titles simultaneously, became the first fighter to defend both.

"Two belts for each shoulder! I get to look at this again", Cormier said.

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

He quickly turned his attentions to former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE star Brock Lesnar, with a match in 2019 looming.

Cormier called out Lesnar for a blockbuster heavyweight bout. In the second round, "DC" tripped Lewis to the mat, attached himself to the monstrous 6-foot-3, 264-pound Texan's back and cinched the choke, cutting of all possible means of escape. Let's go, let's go Brock.

'If you come in here with a puncher's chance, it's not enough.

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".

"It's insane that people say me and Lesnar would be a mega fight when the reality is the mega fight is Jones and I", Cormier told FloCombat.

Lesnar won the Universal Championship this past Friday at Crown Jewel by defeating Braun Strowman in under four minutes.

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

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.
