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

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.

Daniel Cormier continued his incredible run of dominance with a second-round submission victory over Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230 to retain his UFC heavyweight championship.

In between rounds, Cormier's corner instructed him to do the exact same thing and exhausted the Black Beast out.

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. The tapout followed soon after. You can just have this one back.' Seriously.

Despite conceding height, reach, weight and power advantages to the challenger, two-time Olympic wrestler Cormier dominated the contest.

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".


On a possible heavyweight fight: "I would fight "DC" at heavyweight, but I feel I have nothing to prove". That's why Cormier says in reality a fight against Jones should be bigger-it's actually two of the top fighters in the history of the sport clashing for the third time.

For former middleweight king Weidman, 34, it's a further step back after he was looking to build on his win last time out against Gastelum, but now slips to 14-4 overall.

Maybe if the cards would have been dealt a little bit different, we would have already seen a couple WWE matches between Lesnar and Cormier.

"Going into that fight, we knew he was gonna be long and was gonna be a tough opponent", Lewis said of Volkov, who brought a six-fight winning streak into the UFC 229 matchup.

The main event had history, if not the thrills of the earlier bouts. Souza and Weidman were engaged in a brutal slugfest that kept both fighters on their feet for most of the first two rounds. Souza endured and landed a thunderous right hand midway through the final round that sent Weidman crashing to the canvas.

Souza rebounded from a loss to Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 224 and did it with a busted nose. Adesanya, who has earned comparisons to a young Anderson Silva, danced in the middle of the octagon on a night where a new star was seemingly born. "Nah, it's a walk in the Garden", Adesanya said.
