Talented knockout artist Derrick Lewis is currently set to face off against reigning UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier within the main event of UFC 230. The event will take place live on pay-per-view Nov. 3.
Speaking on MMA Junkie Radio, former UFC fighter and reigning Bellator light heavyweight Ryan Bader has since come forward to reveal that he believes Derrick Lewis will have a tough time challenging D.C.
em>“I think Derrick Lewis is funny, the whole deal, I like his personality, I like his post-fight speeches and all that kind of stuff. But I really think this could be Cormier’s easiest fight in a long, long time. I see Cormier going out there, jabbing him in the face a few times, hitting the outside single, putting Derrick on his butt and it’s going to be game over, pretty much.
“That’s why we saw Cormier take this fight, even though he’s got a hurt hand, even though it’s a month away. He’s like, ‘Wait, I get to go out there, put my heavyweight title on the line and fight a guy who just said that he doesn’t even deserve to be in a title fight? That he’s tired and can’t go five rounds? Of course Cormier’s going to do that. I actually think Cormier’s going to run away with that, for sure.”
