Daniel Cormier Dominates & Submits Derrick Lewis In Round 2

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

Once the fight was on the ground, Cormier stayed in complete control by keeping Lewis down and then just hammering away with punches.

Saturday night at the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, 39-year-old Daniel Cormier submitted "Black Beast" Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230, becoming the first man to ever successfully defend both the UFC Heavyweight and UFC Light Heavyweight Championships. Jon Jones, the former light heavyweight champion who will fight Alexander Gustafsson on December 29 at UFC 232 in Las Vegas for the light heavyweight belt that Cormier now holds, is clearly the greatest of all-time. Lewis won by knockout in the third round. Lewis managed to work his way back to the feet, but he expended too much energy and Cormier was easily able to take him down again and control him for the rest of the round.

With the the victory, Cormier has become the first man to defend both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight belts.

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. He said that on the final takedown, which led to the submission, that Lewis punched him in the eye.

And yet, here we are.

Yet while striking when the iron is hot is a good strategy for the UFC to have implemented for this headliner in the Big Apple, it wouldn't mean much is Lewis didn't present a clear and present danger to the reign of Cormier.

The bookies have Lewis listed as a significant underdog, and nobody really seems to be giving him a chance. "Which is insane to say in this sport. It could absolutely happen".

"It was very scary because I had no idea how we were going to explain that one", Cormier said.

"It's history, baby", said Cormier, speaking with Joe Rogan following his victory. In true Derrick Lewis style, he responded by saying: "That depends". I've beaten him twice. But he took the fight, knowing that he already finished a full camp for Volkov and that he has the power to score the upset anytime from round one to five.

You never know how one thing can change another in time and there's always the possibility that you might never expect how different things could have been if things would have been different.
