  • Daniel Cormier On Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones: 'The Mega Fight Is Jones & I'

So me challenging Daniel Cormier would be making it a personal thing. Ifyou come in here with a puncher's chance, it's not enough. "You have to be one of the best in the world to even compete". "But, I never imagined this was possible", Lewis told us.

"I believe that if I didn't go through stuff that I went through in my past, I wouldn't be as successful like I am now here today".

While he accepted the matchup against heavy-handed knockout artist Derrick Lewis on extremely short notice, Cormier didn't skip a beat by taking his behemoth opponent down to the ground and snatching a rear naked choke submission to finish the fight in the second round.

As Cormier put it, there really are no surprises with him.

"It means everything", Cormier said. "That's what that is". 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. He was still dealing with a hand injury four weeks ago.

Cormier slapped a pair of championship belts over his shoulders and celebrated UFC history, before calling out the UFC legend-turned wrestler, Lesnar. Create history by becoming the first champion to defend titles in multiple weight classes, and do it in a historic venue.

UFC President Dana White has said he wanted a Lesnar-Cormier bout signed for next year, a showcase that would surely be the biggest ever for heavyweights. All the right pieces are in place.

Lesnar once again became WWE Universal champion after defeating Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel on Friday night. All he needed to do in order to complete his improbable climb to the top was get through Daniel Cormier.

"They say this is a walk in the park?" Nearly every fighter does.

His win in NY could set up a bout with Brock Lesnar, who has not competed inside the octagon for two years.

"That could be the retirement fight for ol' DC", Cormier said. Let's go, let's go Brock. Two weeks before my birthday.

"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.

White also mentioned that he hasn't talked to Lesnar in a while and confirmed that he has no idea when the fight against Daniel Cormier will happen. And it's hard to complain about that.
