In a little under two weeks, Daniel Cormier will defend his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight title against Derrick Lewis in a last-minute title fight booked to headline the promotion’s return to Madison Square Garden in New York City N.Y.
“DC” is on his retirement tour at the moment, as he only has one more fight left after his showdown against “Black Beast.” With a win over Lewis, Cormier is looking to lock down a big-money showdown against Brock Lesnar to put a bow on his storied mixed martial arts (MMA) career.
Lewis, though, is looking to turn the MMA world on its head by upsetting the “champ-champ” in a title fight he never lobbied for in the first place.
In the co-main event, former UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman will face off against Ronaldo Souza in what is shaping up to be a title eliminator matchup. Also, Israel Adesanya and Derek Brunson will collide in a pivotal 185-pound showdown.
