UFC 230 Post-Fight Press Conference

Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis for the UFC World Heavyweight Championship took place at UFC 230 in Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The defeat of Lewis means Cormier now boasts 22 victories to his name as he defended the UFC heavyweight title he'd won in July against Stipe Miocic, while the manner of his latest crushing win sent a real message to Lesnar.

Immediately after Cormier's maiden 265lbs title defence, attention turned to the prospect of him have a trilogy fight with Jones.

It was arguably one of the most straightforward wins of the 39-year-old's recent UFC career, as he extended his undefeated record as a heavyweight. The challenger powered his way to his feet, but the champion stayed sticky and twisted Lewis to the canvas again with another easy single, once again taking up residency in half guard.

That sets the stage for a 2019 bout against WWE champion Brock Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion.

Derrick Lewis loves Popeyes chicken and he could win free chicken for life if he beats Daniel Cormier on Saturday.

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

Cormier, who also holds the light heavyweight crown, made quick work of an overmatched fellow American Lewis with a rear naked choke in the middle of the second round. That's why Cormier says in reality a fight against Jones should be bigger-it's actually two of the top fighters in the history of the sport clashing for the third time. "I just like to have a good time and I like to make people laugh".

"The Black Beast" said he was loosening up as the bout progressed, but Cormier managed to finish him off before he could truly get in a groove. Lewis got up quickly but Cormier had him up against the cage and then dragged him back down to the ground.

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.

On a possible heavyweight fight: "I would fight "DC" at heavyweight, but I feel I have nothing to prove".

To open the pay-per-view portion of the card, New Zealand's Israel Adesanya put on a clinical performance in knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round.
