Daniel Cormier retains UFC heavyweight title and calls out Lesnar again

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

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.

Strength of schedule, team records, head-to-head results, and eventually championships all factor into the committee's decisions. It's the highest ranking for the Washington State program since the College Football Playoff format was introduced in 2014.

Cormier and Lesnar have been linked to fight each other since they scuffled inside the cage following Cormier's victory over Stipe Miocic earlier this year, and the championship bout seems all but confirmed following a dominant win by Cormier against Derrick Lewis in NY.

"I got this scale in my house, which I swear is heavy but I don't think it is". I come in here and try to do my thing. All he needed to do in order to complete his improbable climb to the top was get through Daniel Cormier. I'm still fighting and I believe the championship fight right now is good for me because I'm still gonna be in training camp. "I'm an optimistic guy". And I got my clothes. "(But) They (the fans) know I'm gonna give it my all".

We're definitely going to miss Cormier when he hangs up his gloves, which will likely take place next year. Now that will be some post-fight interview.

It was a thrilling victory, but Lewis had to take a lot of punishment in order to earn the win and even admitted afterward that he didn't have the cardio to fight for the title anytime soon.
