04 November, 2018, 22:34 | Author: Ethel Goodwin
"I hurt it this morning bad", Cormier told reporters, including MMAjunkie, post-fight at UFC 230. While others in the division were on a quest for gold, "The Black Beast" was chasing paychecks, more focused on adding to his bank account than climbing the rankings.
Cormier beat Anthony Johnson in 2015 to win the light heavyweight title and defended it against the likes of Alexander Gustafsson and Volkan Oezdemir.
Cormier's record moves to 22-1-0, plus one no-contest. Cormier unloaded elbows to Lewis as the crowd booed, ultimately preferring a stand-up war.
Much like attacking a bucket of chicken, Cormier tagged Lewis everywhere: leg, thigh, and then the neck for the decisive blow.
Lewis came out more aggressively in the second, threatening with strikes through the opening minute, but as soon as Cormier could close the distance, he dumped him to the canvas.
"Right after that, we kept going back and forth".
Cormier outclassed Derrick Lewis with his wrestling ability and took Lewis to the ground several times over two rounds, eventually finishing Lewis with a rear naked choke.
There was a decent amount of hype heading into this one but when the octagon doors closed, it became evident very quickly that the gap in skill between these two would be too vast for Lewis to conquer.
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jon Jones said that he's not interested in a fight with Daniel Cormier because has "nothing to prove". One of the greatest of all time.
"Everything he did had unbelievable power", he said. I've beaten him twice. "It was an honour to share the octagon with him".
Cormier won the heavyweight crown when he flattened Stipe Miocic, a bout that ended with theatrics after he called Lesnar into the cage.
"I told him a long time ago, 'If you're my champion the rest of my career, I'm cool with that, '" White said. "There are no surprises with me". The challenger was completely out of his depth but managed to make it to the end of the round. "If you have a puncher's chance it's not good enough".
Lesnar is expected to hold the championship at least until the Royal Rumble, but could end up unable to compete at the event.
