Daniel Cormier on Lesnar: “I’m going to slap him in his face. I owe him one from last time.”
All the MMA fans remember Brock Lesnar showing up in the cage at UFC 226, July 8, after Daniel Cormier beat Stipe Miocic and became a two-division champion of the UFC, holding the Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight belts. Back then, DC and Lesnar got into a small conflict. Things got more intense when Brock pushed Cormier and trashed the former UFC champ Stipe Miocic and another heavyweight, Francis Ngannou.
Cormier answered back, “Yeah, you’re strong. But everybody’s strong. Push me now, you go to sleep later.”
He doesn’t seem to be scared of Brock at all and is ready for the clash.
Now Daniel Cormier has a fight scheduled on November 3rd at Madison Square Garden and will headline the main event of UFC 230, where he will be facing Derrick Lewis. ‘The Black Beast’ is 9-1 in his last 10 fights and recently made the biggest comeback in the history of UFC, knocking out Alexander Volkov at 4:49 of the last round.
However, it won’t go all smoothly this time if Lesnar decides to show up in the octagon.
During his interview at Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM, Daniel Cormier said:(H/T MMAMania)
“I heard Brock Lesnar will be at The Garden for UFC 230. If he tries to step into that cage again, I’m going to slap him in his face. I owe him one from last time.”
Now we know what will happen if Cormier successfully defends his title, and Lesnar tries to put another show.
Even so, Derrick Lewis doesn’t plan on missing the opportunity to fight against Lesnar. He has no plans of losing the fight and has stated that he wants to get Brock next if gets the win over DC.
He joked, “That’s my plan,” Lewis said. “I’m planning on Eagle-diving on Brock Lesnar. We’ll see.”
Whatever happens, it’s going to be really fun and interesting to watch. Both of these athletes have shown why they are one of the best in the UFC, and Brock is certainly one of the PPV giants in the history of this sport.
