UFC 230: Daniel Cormier submits Derrick Lewis to defend heavyweight title

He was meeting an unlikely challenger in the form of Lewis, 33, who was appearing on consecutive main cards, having faced Russia's Alexander Volkov just four weeks ago at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, where he secured a stunning late KO win.
Cormier had a quick takedown in the first round and turned in a dominant yet tiresome effort to easily take the round.
Quickly passing his opponent's defense, Cormier took the back and immediately locked up a rear naked choke and within a split second it was clear that Lewis wasn't breaking free. What Lewis didn't expect was a call to fight Cormier for the belt in less than a month's time. Part of the appeal of Lewis is he's a man you can never count out, but stylistically he had nothing for Cormier - and Cormier knew it.
Cormier's record moves to 22-1-0, plus one no-contest.
The closest Cormier came to defeat on Saturday was apparently early on fight day, when he claims he threw out his back. due to a sneeze. And with wins in nine of his last ten bouts, with seven of those victories coming by knockout, it's clear that Lewis is unsafe on fight night. That dude actually got in so much s**t that they just said, "Here, DC, you can just have the belt back" the last time after he knocked me out.
UFC President Dana White has said he wanted a Lesnar-Cormier bout signed for next year, a showcase that would surely be the biggest ever for heavyweights.
Cormier told Brock Lesnar to bring the Universal Title to their fight next year in his post-fight interview.
"That will only happen if Lesnar isn't available and I get fight Jones". Lesnar is still serving a suspension imposed by USADA until January of 2019.
Lewis landed a nice combo 30 seconds into the second round and even tried a switch kick as he stepped up the aggression. Lewis opened with a body shot to Cormier and then followed it up with another that backed Cormier up.
