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

Daniel Cormier The Champion

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

Cormier easily defended his UFC heavyweight championship on Saturday at Madison Square Garden by submitting Derrick Lewis at 2:14 of the second round in a one-sided beating in the main event of UFC 230.

For the hugely popular Lewis, an unlikely victory never seemed on the cards as his punching power and range advantage was expertly managed by Cormier. He celebrated with his family in the cage as Lewis trudged out, still in his trunks unlike the last fight that made him a quick star.

"There are no surprises with me", Cormier said. The tapout followed soon after. You have to be one of the best in the world to be able to compete.

"They could do it at WrestleMania match because Cormier I think would be open to do one match you know because he's a big fan".

For now, former midfielder Santiago Solari has taken charge of the team following Lopetegui's dismissal. Their team now play in Segunda División B - the third tier of Spanish football.

Lewis went into the fight looking a lot leaner than he was last month and Cormier was a lot heavier at 251 pounds and he has been dealing with a hand injury.

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.

The win solidifies Cormier as the best heavyweight in the sport and now he's ready for his showdown against former champion Brock Lesnar, who is expected to make his return to the Octagon in early 2019. Cormier will be stripped of his light heavyweight title and the 205-pound crown will go to the victor of the Jones-Gustafsson bout at UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas. Like seriously. We got some pictures that we may release later in the week.

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.

In the co-main event, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza knocked former middleweight champion Chris Weidman out in the third round. Souza got a couple of punches in for good measure until referee Dan Miragliotta mercifully stopped the fight. Adesanya landed a knee to the face that stumbled Brunson and finished him off with a left that had the crowd on its feet.
