Daniel Cormier retains UFC heavyweight title and calls out Lesnar again
Daniel Cormier On Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones: 'The Mega Fight Is Jones & I'
04 November, 2018, 22:35
Daniel Cormier became the first man to successfully defend titles in two different weight-classes with a dominant victory over Derrick Lewis. "There's no difference in what I weigh today as to what I weigh when I fight at 205lbs", Cormier said of a move back to the light-heavyweight division.
Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion and current WWE superstar, has consistently been one of the five biggest draws in the history of MMA, and there was already heat building for a showdown with Cormier after they had an in-cage altercation back at UFC 226 in July. But Cormier is making him wait a little bit for the title.
Not long ago, during a backstage encounter, Derrick Lewis jokingly scolded his upcoming opponent Daniel Cormier for disrespecting Popeyes Chicken, which is apparently his favorite fast food chain to eat. "I knew right off the bat I was gonna have a tough time getting in on him and landing shots". "We're the two greatest fighters of all time and we fight each other. If Daniel Cormier wants to come back down to light heavyweight, he'll challenge one of the contenders for my belt".
And if you consider Saturday's fight within that context, it makes you appreciate it more.
