Cormier had it so easy on Saturday that he probably could fight Lesnar on Sunday.
After prison, Lewis got work as a tow truck driver. before being convinced to take up MMA. If you have a puncher's chance, like I said, that's not enough.
"I believe I can knock out anyone in the world", he said. She set the kick up ideal.
"I'm sure USADA said - whatever". You can't be on steroids in no way shape or form. "I think about my past and stuff like that", Lewis told TMZ this afternoon, as he recounted the past events that gave him stock, as a strong-willed character, inside and outside of the octagon.
"A lot of people have to understand that I've been doing this for nine years and I fought at a championship level for eight of them", Cormier said.
Lewis eventually managed to extract himself, only for Cormier to secure a second takedown and press the advantage by hammering away on the deck.
"How insane must the guy that won be for them to go, 'Hey, man".
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.
It was a cagey start before Cormier took Lewis down about a minute into the fight.
"I cut from this weight to 205lbs".
While defeating Lewis isn't a foregone conclusion, Cormier is a massive favorite heading into the fight, and a loss would be considered one of the bigger upsets in the history of the UFC's heavyweight division.
Speaking to commentator Joe Rogan, Cormier called out former UFC star and current WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar. I'm a brawler, and for me to get a shot like this is really eye opening. You know when you're scared to get on the scale and you're like, 'I'm going to wear my clothes to try to lie to myself to try to say I got 10lbs of clothes on.' I weighed 260lbs, the day after Thanksgiving. Jones and I may be the two best fighters in the history of the sport. But that won't happen for just anyone. Shane Burgos and Marcos Rogerio de Lima were victorious on the UFC Fight Pass prelims, as Matt Frevola and Lando Vannata fought to a majority draw.
