Madison Square Garden played host to some pretty intense carnage last night (Sat., Nov. 3, 2018) at UFC 230 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from New York City, as Daniel Cormier successfully defended his UFC heavyweight title with a dominant second-round submission finish (rear-naked choke) over No. 2 contender Derrick Lewis.
In addition to “DC’s” third-straight main event finish, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza brutally finished Chris Weidman in a wild middleweight affair, rising star Israel Adesanya took advantage of his main card bid with a first-round TKO win over Derek Brunson, Jared Cannonier stepped up on short notice to flatten David Branch in two, Lyman Good finished Ben Saunders with a 93 second knockout, and lightweights Lando Vannata and Matt Frevola battled it out to a draw in an insane preliminary bout.
