If Lewis does any type of cardio he would be way better. The man looks like he doesn’t train for more than 30 min a day. He’s one of my favorite fighters but he doesn’t train hard enough to beat a guy like Cormier.

The fight is only 25 min long, he'll be fine

 

Seriously though, WTF kind of matchup is this?  Is the broken finger a for sure thing?  How would it even get sanctioned?

I bet the original intention was to have Volkov beat Lewis then fight DC instead.

WTF, Lewis just got his ass beat for 2.9 rounds and they're going to throw him back in the cage less than a month later? Against DC at that? Aren't there people who didn't just take a 14 minute beating that could've fought DC? Stipe, Blydes somebody?


Hell bring in CroCop, who cares if he pisses hot after the fight?

Jesus, can you imagine if Lewis pulls off a KO? 

He would retire the greatest of all time.

They are struggling for a fight and are cashing in on the Lewis interview going viral. Don’t think it will help numbers but I guess I can kind of see their logic.

Fuck you haters! I'm on the Black Beast hype train! Dude's gonna get paid, and he's proved he can knock out anybody.

It isn't a dream fight but it will definitely be entertaining. I finally feel like 230 has the "can't miss" feel to it with 3 good/great fights.

Wonder what stipe thinks of this lol

I like Stipe, but fuck immediate rematches after descive victories.

Completely agree. Stipe would get flatlined again anyways.

The UFC are screwing Derrick on this. He said he's not ready for a title shot and now they only give him a month to prepare.

He got 135/135 for his win at UFC 229, plus a bonus.

They probably said, "How would you like to make twice that, plus PPV points?"

He won't lose anything if he loses the fight. He'll still be in the top 5, always one more win away from another title shot.

For sure. He said it in the octagon and the interviews afterward.

No one's turning down a title fight. It's a win for lewis just to get the shot.

Sure, but you're acting like taking a beating from a heavyweight double champ, and likely getting finished, has no physical or personal cost. Taking a bad beating can have lasting effects.

this is dumb in all regards.  not as bad as that WMMA fight but this is just bad.  

 

Derrick Lewis said in not one but 5 post fight interviews he wanted no part of a title fight because he was fat and out of shape.  Didn't think he could go 5 rounds.  

 

ufc is pretty pathetic.

Lewis has 3mins to get this done. DC will not let him slide for 3 rounds.

This pains me to see again and again the UFC trying to save cards due to poor booking. The fighters suffer once they get pushed back to the back of the line.

Better hope this is live changing money for Derrick because he may not get another shot at the title or big money.

DC was so adament about not fighting until Brock. Maybe hes trying to leverage a new contract before Brock/Jones.

How does the NY commission even sanction this.

Oh I know, this is the same group who allowed towelgate, didn't have a doctor inspect Max when he was pulled, didn't allow Pettis or Felder to take the Khabib fight. Missing anything?

I love how fighters are yelling and screaming for title shots during interviews and most of these cries fall on deaf ears.  Black Beast gets on the mic and pretty much dismisses any realistic possibilities of a title shot and he gets one within 72 hours.

They need a main event for ufc 230, and Brock can't fight till next year.
