Daniel Cormier comments on Brock Lesnar’s mic skills

Daniel Cormier comments on Brock Lesnar’s mic skills”

Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier warned Brock Lesnar to "stay out of the octagon" as he prepares to defend his title against Derrick Lewis at UFC 230. Two preliminary fighters did miss weight, including the fighter formerly slated as half of the main event of this card, Sijara Eubanks (127.2). "I'm going to be eating Popeyes quite a bit". At the time, he was viewed as a troubled 20-year-old kid who had blown two chances to make something of his life.

Lewis has also cashed on some notoriety that came from a PG-13 answer as to why he stripped off his shorts inside the cage after beating Volkov. Despite claiming self-defense, Lewis received probation. He would be denied parole two times and spent 3 ½ years behind bars before being released.

After prison, Derrick Lewis reintegrated himself by taking on the mantle of a tow-truck driver, before betting on his MMA potential. "I still would have done some stupid stuff".

"I ain't all that technical and all that but I'm getting there", he then reasoned of his performance, the ninth win in his last ten bouts.

"I do feel strongly in that idea", Cormier told MMAWeekly about his looming retirement next year.

"Not me. Some times, a couple of times, I had sex the same day as I fought", he added.

When released, he tried boxing for a bit, but settled into MMA where heavyweights normally stand and slug it out until someone drops. He's won eight of his last nine fights (three straight) on the strength of his significant knockout power that makes him a threat should he connected on that one devastating punch. His latest stoppage came at UFC 229 on October 6 in Las Vegas, when he dropped Alexander Volkov with a devastating right-hand in the third round of a fight where he was behind on the cards.

"He's a wife beater, I'd like to get in there with him", Lewis said. "It says, if I can do it, they can believe they can do it". But before every fight he summons the anger and the darkness from those "tough times" and carries it into the Octagon. So if anybody thinks I would chase these guys and extend my career for some sort of "I have to get this person or that person", that's not true.

"I would look at it and talk to my training team about it but I don't need to fight", Cormier explained.

A reporter asks Lewis: "What do you eat before fights?"

The UFC returns with its next pay-per-view offering Saturday, Nov. 3, with UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in NY. Cormier isn't very impressed with Lewis or his Popeyes endorsement.

"He's just a real nice, fun-loving guy but when he gets in there, he tries to knock your head off", Cormier said. They go back and do the same thing.

"That would be great if I could be a role model or inspiration to those who have been in my shoes before", Lewis said.

Chances are they will be.
