Two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier is now set to face off against Derrick Lewis in a battle for the heavyweight title. The two will throw down for the main event of UFC 230 on Nov. 3.
The highly anticipated fight card is set to take place within Madison Square Garden in New York, live on pay-per-view for fight fans around the world. That being said, Daniel Cormier has since come forward to reveal that he is still recovering from an injured hand. D.C. broke his hand during UFC 226, in which the fighter knocked out Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight belt.
In a statement to MMA Junkie, NYSAC spokesperson Lee Park has now come forward to reveal that the commission may order additional medical tests for Daniel Cormier ahead of the event.
“Our medical team may require additional medical checks for any specific fighter when warranted, and they do.”
