UFC 230 Attendance and Gate Numbers from Madison Square Garden

Daniel Cormier The Champion

"Should be. I can't predict anything but yea."

Daniel Cormier holds his belts after defeating Derrick Lewis by submission during the second round of a heavyweight mixed martial arts bout at UFC 230, early Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in NY.

"Brock Lesnar, when you come bring that brand new WWE title", the champ said, moments after his victory. "I feel like being the WWE Champion too". The WWE superstar won the UFC heavyweight title in remarkable fashion back in 2008 in only his fourth professional fight when he stopped UFC legend Randy Couture at UFC 91.

Daniel Cormier continued to make history when he submitted Derrick Lewis in the main event of last night's (Sat., November 3, 2018) UFC 230 from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. He said that he believes Cormier when he says he will retire in March when he turns 40.

Cormier defended his title with a clinical win over Lewis.

Lewis earned the shot at the title after beating Alexander Volkov barely a month ago, but his quick return to the octagon failed to pay off after he tapped out in the second round of the clash in NY. Lewis took up mixed martial arts shortly after his release and used his big right hand to ascend to a title shot.

Daniel Cormier (39 years of age) went on to say that the last-minute injury served as a reminder that he is getting old. Lewis was able to take control of Cormier's arms to keep the barrage to a minimum. He celebrated with his family in the cage as Lewis trudged out, still in his trunks unlike the last fight that made him a quick star. Lewis eventually worked his way back to his feet, but DC earned another takedown and piled on some ground and pound.

It was a slick finish for Cormier, who locked in a rear-naked choke and Lewis coudln't fight it.

In the co-main event, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza knocked former middleweight champion Chris Weidman out in the third round.
