Daniel Cormier reveals when he would target a fight with Brock Lesnar

Daniel Cormier reveals when he would target a fight with Brock Lesnar

Cormier, who accepted this fight on just three weeks' notice, is now 15-0 in his career as a heavyweight fighter.

Derrick Lewis loves Popeyes chicken and he could win free chicken for life if he beats Daniel Cormier on Saturday.

Daniel Cormier continued his incredible run of dominance with a second-round submission victory over Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230 to retain his UFC heavyweight championship.

With this win, Cormier defends his heavyweight title for the first time since securing it at UFC 226 in July.

Assuming Cormier finds a way to win, his next fight will likely come down to two possible opponents: Brock Lesnar or Jon Jones.

On a third fight with Cormier: "There's no reason to grant (Cormier) a fight". Plus, the allure of putting his name on the top of the marquee for a title defense at MSG appealed to his ego. I have nothing to prove against Daniel Cormier. "Stuff like that means something to me, which is a bit risky because the UFC knows, if they dangle the carrot, they know they can get me to bite by putting all that historical stuff in front of me".

Lovren takes swipe at Real Madrid star
Ramos and Lovren squared off in the final of the Champions League in May, with the Spanish centre-back coming out on top in Kiev. Having formed a good friendship with Salah it is perhaps unsurprising that Lovren has since gone on to criticise Sergio Ramos .

The 33-year-old Lewis also can't wait to get to the Garden.

"It's where all the famous fighters put down their mark in the sport", he said.

But Cormier has solidified himself as one of MMA's greatest fighters and most dominant wrestlers. Lewis, who had never before been submitted, checked out 2:14 into Round 2. The second bout a year ago was changed to a no-contest when Jones failed a doping test that kept him out of the sport for 15 months. "I get to look at this again", Cormier said.

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.

Lewis went into the fight looking a lot leaner than he was last month and Cormier was a lot heavier at 251 pounds and he has been dealing with a hand injury.

"Two belts, one on each shoulder baby!"
