Daniel Cormier reveals when he would target a fight with Brock Lesnar

Daniel Cormier defended his heavyweight title with a dominant second-round submission victory over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in NY.

Cormier and Lesnar have been linked to fight each other since they scuffled inside the cage following Cormier's victory over Stipe Miocic earlier this year, and the championship bout seems all but confirmed following a dominant win by Cormier against Derrick Lewis in NY.

He is now the first fighter in UFC history to successfully defend a championship in multiple weight-classes.

It was arguably one of the most straightforward wins of the 39-year-old's recent UFC career, as he extended his undefeated record as a heavyweight.

"Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that brand new WWE title", Cormier said.

"It's nearly like, okay so Brock loses to Cormier who's retiring anyway and Cormier again - as far as I know there's not deal with WWE but they want him and Fox wants him so okay, so the guy who beats Lesnar is going to come in as your announcer so that's not the worst thing either".

Lewis got a couple of shots in early but Cormier took him down.

American Cormier controlled the bout from the start, grabbing a takedown after barely a minute in the first round.

The heavyweight champ even managed to plant a big kiss on Rogan for good measure.

"It's history baby! Like my man Jon Anik said, history in the making, Daniel Cormier, one of the greatest of all-time".

"If Derrick Lewis wins eat for free from 2-4 on Sunday" at Popeyes on 9120 Barker Cypress Rd, Cypress, TX 7743.

On a possible heavyweight fight: "I would fight "DC" at heavyweight, but I feel I have nothing to prove".

"It is kind of insane that it's happening, but really I'm just going into it like it's another fight". But, as happened in the first round, Cormier grabbed a single leg and swept Lewis to his back.

"Right after that, we kept going back and forth". Cormier allows him to get back to his feet but still has Lewis pressed against the cage.

You never know how one thing can change another in time and there's always the possibility that you might never expect how different things could have been if things would have been different.
