Derrick Lewis Says Prison, Rough Past Led To UFC Stardom

Daniel Cormier Jon Jones

"Two belts one on each shoulder baby", Cormier said in the Octagon after the fight.

Back in July, Cormier scored a stunning first-round knockout win over Stipe Miocic to claim the heavyweight title, becoming the first man to hold the heavyweight and light heavyweight titles simultaneously. "I know y'all guys don't expect me to come in here and get no submissions or nothing technical, you're going to get what you've been seeing, it's going to be all heart".

Lewis earned the shot at the title after beating Alexander Volkov barely a month ago, but his quick return to the octagon failed to pay off after he tapped out in the second round of the clash in NY.

Not long ago, during a backstage encounter, Derrick Lewis jokingly scolded his upcoming opponent Daniel Cormier for disrespecting Popeyes Chicken, which is apparently his favorite fast food chain to eat.

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.

The tap came at 2:14 into the second round as Cormier jumped up to celebrate the first defense of his heavyweight title.

Cormier's last fight ended with theatrics after he called Lesnar into the cage, and Lesnar shoved Cormier in the chest while the fighters traded insults to hype a potential future bout.

I was just sitting at home in California minding my own business but I could not stop thinking about what's going on down here. The bishop also said, "If you're going to address people based on their color only, I think it's pretty sad".

On a third fight with Cormier: "There's no reason to grant (Cormier) a fight".

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 in the heavyweight division. Lesnar is still serving a suspension imposed by USADA until January of 2019. Cormier executed multiple takedowns, buried "The Black Beast" with suffocating top control and tore into him with short bursts of punishing ground-and-pound.

It was a cagey start before Cormier took Lewis down about a minute into the fight.

The two middleweight contenders put on a war for the fans, but it was Souza who landed the finishing blow after Weidman shot in for a takedown late. You have to be one of the best in the world to be able to compete.

Jordan Rinaldi topped Jason Knight in the prelim main event on FOX Sports 1, as Sijara Eubanks, Sheymon Moraes and Lyman Good all earned wins.

Adesanya flipped off Brunson early in the first round and finished him not much later for the TKO win.
