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

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

"For a long time, that's what people thought [Jones] would do".

Cormier finished the fight 4-for-4 on takedowns and outlanded Lewis 19-4 on significant strikes, according to FightMetric. And he'll be keeping an eye on his waistline - the one he expects to still be wrapped with the title belt after Saturday night. He then goes to the head with a kick but Cormier blocks it. DC closes the distance and gets a takedown fairly easy.

Yes, the answer is yes. "I've been through so much stuff that I hope even my enemies wouldn't have to go through". A fight between the pair was teased this past summer with an in-Octagon confrontation. "I like Gastelum in that fight".

The heavyweight challenger fights for UFC gold against Daniel Cormier this weekend in NY, and he's talking up his clash in epic style. Lewis won by knockout in the third round.

Former champion Stipe Miocic definitely deserves a rematch after Cormier knocked him out back in July. He submitted Lewis (21-6) via rear-naked choke at 2 minutes, 14 seconds of the second round in a bout that headlined UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden.

That's technically true, although the result of Jones' TKO win over Cormier last summer was overturned when banned substances were found in his system.

The fighters joked for a while before Lewis could finally find a reason to dislike Cormier: "He disrespected that Popeye's chicken on a commercial a few years ago".

It's an enviable position to be in for a fighter on his way out of the game, but it doesn't sound like Cormier has fully decided what to do. I guarantee you can.

Coming into Monday night's game against the Chicago Bulls , Thompson had struggled to get going on the offensive end. But it was quickly wiped out mostly by Curry , who made his first five shots, with three of them behind the arc.

"No, I don't want to clarify anything", Jones said. Basically, I guess they just thinking I've been winning my fights just by luck. After guys get in the Octagon with me they're never the same. This is MMA, not baseball.

Lewis threw several haymakers in the second round with bad intentions, but Cormier slipped the shots and calmly went about taking him back to the floor.

There is little chance he's going to out-grapple Cormier, a two-time Olympian and the captain of the 2008 U.S. Olympic wrestling team.

With a California State Wrestling Tournament being the prime focus at the beginning of the year for Cormier, will he, in fact, fight Brock Lesnar on January 26th, 2019?

"I've been doing nothing but cardio". "I am thinking to myself, okay, obviously Brock is here for a fight".

"I've done enough to that guy".

"I gave my timing to the UFC", countered Nunes, who has always maintained she would be ready to fight on this card.

Daniel Cormier added several more notes to his historic résumé Saturday night in a successful heavyweight title defense against Derrick Lewis at UFC 230.
