Matches to Make After UFC 230

As if you needed reminding, Daniel Cormier is one of the greatest of all time.

Marshman was looking to bounce back after his loss against Antonio Carlos Jr last month, but was denied after three rounds at Madison Square Garden.

The future isn't immediately clear for Daniel Cormier right now but with yet another rising force nullified as a contender, you'd have to assume that his next bout will be a lucrative one.

Lewis had a size and reach advantage, but Cormier set the tempo and took Lewis down at will before submitting him in the second round. Cormier celebrated with both championship belts in the cage as Lewis trudged out of the cage, still in his trunks.

Cormier had a quick takedown in the first round and turned in a dominant yet tiresome effort to easily take the round. He didn't waste much time in the second and left MSG with a little slice of history.

"Unfortunately, it will not net me the money that I would make fighting Brock Lesnar".

Jones' comments were put to Cormier in the post-fight press conference and he didn't shy away from lambasting his rival over his failed drug tests, the most recent of which detected traces of the banned anabolic steroid Turainbol in his system.

'Brock Lesnar! When you come, bring that brand new WWE title too, I feel like being a WWE champion too.

"History in the making".

"They could do it at WrestleMania match because Cormier I think would be open to do one match you know because he's a big fan". "He got knocked out the last time we fought".

"When I was on ESPN yesterday, they thought it was absolutely impossible that Derrick Lewis wins this fight", said UFC president Dana White.

Lesnar once again became WWE Universal champion after defeating Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel on Friday night.

The tap came at 2:14 into the second round as Cormier jumped up to celebrate the first defense of his heavyweight title.

Lewis (21-6) served 3 1/2 years in prison in his early 20s stemming from a parole violation when he was charged with aggravated assault shortly after high school. "Also Derrick Lewis will eat for free at this location for the rest off his life!"

For the hugely popular Lewis, an unlikely victory never seemed on the cards as his punching power and range advantage was expertly managed by Cormier. "You have to be one of the best in the world to even compete".

In the co-main event, Brazilian veteran Jacare Souza stunned home favorite Chris Weidman with a third-round TKO win in their middleweight contest.
