Daniel Cormier retains his UFC heavyweight title with win over Derrick Lewis

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

Derrick Lewis Says Prison, Rough Past Led To UFC Stardom

"Like my man Jon Anik says, 'History in the making".

17,011 spectators attended the event at Madison Square Garden in New York City generating gate sales totaling $2,841,718.68.

One of the most genuine and honest people in sports, Cormier heaped praised upon Lewis' power, but it was never a factor.

According to Derrick Lewis, the key to willing yourself to victory in the octagon comes at the expense of your mental well-being: "you really got to put yourself in a dark spot", he told TMZ in the moments leading up to his Heavyweight title fight against two-division champion Daniel Cormier this Saturday.

Cormier slapped a pair of championship belts over his shoulders and celebrated UFC history, before calling out the UFC legend-turned wrestler, Lesnar.

Cormier had a quick takedown in the first round and turned in a dominant yet tiresome effort to easily take the round.

Speaking to commentator Joe Rogan, Cormier called out former UFC star and current WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar.

"Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that brand new WWE title as I feel like being a WWE Champion too". "Unfortunately, he's like 40 years old, and you can't keep doing this much longer if you're Daniel Cormier".

It's not just talk from Lewis, and if anyone needed any convincing, just rewind to last month, when the Houston contender avoided a near-certain decision loss to Alexander Volkov with a late flurry in the third round that knocked out the Russian standout with 11 seconds left in the fight. Again, the Houston native regained his feet, but the respite only last a matter of seconds as Cormier took him down again.

Cormier submitted Lewis with a rear-naked choke hold midway through the second round, in a contest he had controlled from the outset through repeated takedowns as the fight played out as many had expected.

Lewis served 3½ years in prison in his early 20s stemming from a parole violation when he was charged with aggrevated assault shortly after high school. Derrick Lewis is one punch away from winning any fight.

No disrespect to Lewis, but he never had much of a chance in this one.

In between rounds, Cormier's corner instructed him to do the exact same thing and exhausted the Black Beast out. You can just have this one back.' Seriously.

Cormier was a bit of a surprise main eventer in a card that has been shuffled because of injuries and the dire need to find a quality main event at MSG.
