UFC champ Cormier calls out Lesnar after historic win

UFC champ Cormier calls out Lesnar after historic win

On Saturday, Lewis will be fighting for a championship only 28 days later against a guy, in Cormier, who holds the belt in both the heavyweight and light-heavyweight divisions.

After Cormier won the UFC Heavyweight Championship at UFC 226, he called Lesnar down to the ring and the two had a brief confrontation ending in Lesnar announcing his intention to fight Cormier in 2019.

Cormier's next and final fight is expected to be a multi-million-pound showdown with Brock Lesnar, who he called out after seeing off Lewis.

Derrick Lewis, right, punches Alexander Volkov during a heavyweight mixed martial arts bout at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

After an electric undercard, it was down to the "Double Champ" and the challenger with nothing to lose, closing out the show with the heavyweight title hanging in the balance.

The 33-year-old Lewis also can't wait to get to the Garden.

Wall Street resumes selloff; S&P flirts with correction
The benchmark S&P 500 index in the U.S. is down more than 1.5%, falling nearly 10% from its peak set earlier in October. The Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 500 points Friday, or 2 percent, putting it in the red for the year again.

Quoted on the UFC website, Cormier said after the fight: 'There are no surprises with me.

Quickly passing his opponent's defense, Cormier took the back and immediately locked up a rear naked choke and within a split second it was clear that Lewis wasn't breaking free. "Because you say, I don't want to give you the shot, you don't deserve it, I beat you.' He said he knocked me out, which he did".

But Cormier has solidified himself as one of MMA's greatest fighters and most dominant wrestlers.

"Everything he did had unbelievable power", he said of Lewis. "There's something different about him, and that's how I know what's in front of me this weekend". I love his Instagram, I love his story and it was an honor for me to share the Octagon with him.

UFC President Dana White recently stated that he had no problems with Lesnar bring the WWE Universal Championship with him to the octagon, although he didn't believe that was something Vince McMahon would allow. "If you have a puncher's chance, that's not enough".

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. "Don't think for a second I'm making pennies when I fight Jones, 'cause both of our pay-per-views have done over 800,000 buys".
