UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis is now set to fight Daniel Cormier for his title. The two fighters will face off in the main event of UFC 230 on Saturday, Nov. 3.
Speaking to media at a recent event, Derrick Lewis made sure to warn Daniel Cormier to prepare for a “100 percent” opponent.
“I believe he’s thinking this is going to be an easy fight for himself. Go ahead and think that. It’s crazy I even made it this far without he training I put in before each and every fight. I’m serious, I don’t stay in the gym each day like my opponents. I spend probably 30 minutes (training), five minutes sitting and five minutes on my phone posting memes and stuff.
“I go into every fight with a bad back and overweight and a damn-near diabetic. It doesn’t matter to me that he’s coming into a fight with just a bad hand. That’s good for him, then.”
“As long as I’m 100 percent, I’m in good shape. I don’t care what he’s going to do or what he thinks he can do. I’m just going to worry about what I can do. … If you don’t take me serious, it’s a mistake. I want him to take me serious, I don’t want no excuses or nothing like that. I can’t wait for that fight.”
