UFC 230: Daniel Cormier Dominates Derrick Lewis En Route to Historic Win
By FCF Staff
Daniel Cormier dominated Derrick Lewis in the headliner of UFC 230, en route to a historic win.
As many believed would be the case, Lewis had no answers for the wrestling game of Cormier, as the heavyweight champ repeatedly took him down. In round two, “DC” took Lewis to the mat again, and secured a fight-ending, rear-naked-choke.
By defending the heavyweight title, Cormier became the first person in UFC history to defend titles in two different divisions, while holding two belts at the same time (the other being the light-heavyweight division).
