Daniel Cormier and Derrick Lewis will meet inside the octagon at next month’s UFC 230 but don’t get your hopes up for a heated build-up to that fight.
DC and Lewis could well be among the most-liked figures in MMA today and while things may well change over the course of the coming days and weeks, it does appear as though there is some genuine fun to be had with these two.
The pair first crossed paths just prior to UFC 226.

This caused DC to call ‘The Black Beast’ out on his comments publically, something that led to one of the funniest verbal exchanges of the year.

The fight will land just one month after Lewis’ incredible comeback victory over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 and while the man himself has made it clear that his cardio isn’t strong enough for five rounds, that right-hand remains a game-changer.
