Daniel Cormier shows he's strong to the finish at UFC 230

Daniel Cormier On Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones: 'The Mega Fight Is Jones & I'

After claiming the heavyweight belt with a finish of Stipe Miocic earlier this year, "DC" became just the second fighter in UFC history to hold two titles at once.

Cormier exerted his authority from the outset, with most of the opening action confined to the ground after the champ secured a takedown against a disappointing Lewis at the first attempt.

"I really don't need much time for a title fight", he said. Cormier vs. Lewis headlined the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

"I believe that if I didn't go through stuff that I went through in my past, I wouldn't be as successful like I am now here today".

While his biggest UFC moments had come in the 205-pound weight class, two-thirds of Cormier's 21 career victories have come at heavyweight, with his championship win at UFC 226 pushing his record to an incredible 14-0 overall in the big boy division. I think when you get into doing things that have never been done before that ensure I will always be thought of when you think about the greatest fighters of all time.

'If you come in here with a puncher's chance, it's not enough. White was asked if Brock Lesnar is going to be Daniel Cormier's next opponent.

He denied such claims repeatedly over the past several years. "We're going to find the fact pattern", he said. The Saudi attorney general then acknowledged that Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated murder .

Cormier told Brock Lesnar to bring the Universal Title to their fight next year in his post-fight interview.

Lesnar is now in the USADA testing pool and will be clear to return to the octagon in early January. Lewis took up mixed martial arts shortly after his release and used his big right hand to ascend to a title shot.

"The Black Beast" slips to 21-6 overall (with 1 no contest), and saw a three-fight win streak snapped.

Lewis did manage to work his way back up for a split second but Cormier was quick to toss him back down to the canvas again.

Souza and Weidman were engaged in a brutal slugfest that kept both fighters on their feet for most of the first 2½ rounds.

In other middleweight action, rising star Israel Adesanya remained unbeaten by knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round.
