Where’s the beef? Cormier, Lewis vie for heavyweight crown

Derrick Lewis' Brilliant Response When Asked What He Eats Before Fights
Herman Weaver | 04 November, 2018, 06:44

Brock Lesnar, the former UFC champion who has been earning his keep in the world of professional wrestling recently, is likely to challenge the victor. There was no Paul Heyman around but Lesnar's mic work surprised even Cormier.

"Isn't it unbelievable that it took 10 years (to get the recognition), but it is what it is", Cormier said Thursday from media day for UFC 230, which he is headlining with a heavyweight title defence against Derrick Lewis. I don't need Brock [Lesnar]. And that way DC can go get fed to @jonnybones and we can start talk n bout super fight " - Greg Hardy on Instagram. "It is special when he does so maybe that is why it resonated so well". But honestly, I was in there thinking, holy s**t, I am having a WrestleMania moment. Then he left, but I mean I would have dug my heels first off, and secondly, I would have pushed him back.

That's why Cormier says he would potentially consider sticking around past his retirement deadline of March 2019 if the right opportunity presented itself but his decision won't be changed by Lesnar, Jones or the amount of monetary gain on the table to delay the end date for his career. "Even at that moment, I was like, this is insane". He's won eight of his last nine fights (three straight) on the strength of his significant knockout power that makes him a threat should he connected on that one devastating punch.

The whole fairytale ending to his career, where he became the heavyweight champion and the second fighter in UFC history, along with Conor McGregor, to hold two weight class titles simultaneously, would quickly become a nightmare should Lewis clock Cormier on the chin and put him away.

"It was insane in the ring, but when I got to the back I was like, holy smokes, we are going to make a s**t ton of money because look, Brock Lesnar is a special attraction".

What's your order at Popeye's going to be after the fight?

"I know I am. I knew he was coming for something so I was like this dude wanted something and I am going to give it to him", stated Cormier. I'm like, 'Oh Brock's here, this adds another layer to the fight, ' as I'm facing the greatest Heavyweight in the world. Brock walked into the arena and that place was electric.

"I've got into the octagon into this quicker before I made it into UFC", Lewis said. "He is going to be completely in over his head".
