The curious case of Derrick Lewis, the UFC’s unlikely title challenger

During the afternoon of November 1st, Derrick Lewis and heavyweight champion of the world, Daniel Cormier, came face to face at the cessation of the UFC 230 media day. Cormier will be stripped of his light heavyweight title and the 205-pound crown will go to the victor of the Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson bout at UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas. The former National Football League player is now working on earning a UFC contract by fighting on the regional circuit, as specified by his so-called "developmental deal" with the promotion.

"It's insane that people say me and Lesnar would be a mega fight when the reality is the mega fight is Jones and I", Cormier told FloCombat.

Their chicken challenge goes back to July when the fighters shared the dais after they both fought on the same pay-per-view card. Avenging that defeat as his final fight would certainly be a great way for Cormier to go out on top. If I knew he was going to push me I would have dug my heels. Cormier said. "Thank you for blessing me Dana White, I thought I was just getting one".

"Unfortunately, it will not net me the money that I would make fighting Brock Lesnar".

"I need to sit my black ass down and do some more cardio", he explained.

Each class will also get its own Rare minion that's a 0/3 with stealth for one turn and powerful passive abilities. Blizzard says the game is " coming soon ", although the publisher has yet to confirm a specific release date.

NEW YORK - Not every fighter gets the chance to scream at Dana White.

And he'll be keeping an eye on his waistline - the one he expects to still be wrapped with the title belt after Saturday night. With few options available, the promotion announced that the relatively unknown Eubanks would be fighting Valentina Shevchenko for the vacant women's 125 pounds title.

The whole fairytale ending to his career, where he became the heavyweight champion and the second fighter in UFC history, along with Conor McGregor, to hold two weight class titles simultaneously, would quickly become a nightmare should Lewis clock Cormier on the chin and put him away.

That's when Eubanks got White on the phone. Let's argue lol. I want The Fat beast to win so I can go show him a run in with me is broken bones and blood not bruises for that strap lol. According to USADA, Brock Lesnar will be eligible to fight for the UFC 233 event on January 26th, fully having served his suspension.
