"But ain't no telling the next time I'm gonna get the opportunity, so I gotta jump on it anyways". "Lewis", which airs live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, also features a middleweight showdowns between former World Series of Fighting two-division champion David Branch (185.6) and former heavyweight Jared Cannonier (184.8), Karl Roberson (184.6) and Jack Marshman (185.4), and Derek Brunson (185.8) against the undefeated Israel Adesanya (184.8), all of whom hit their marks.
Brock Lesnar (L) confronts Daniel Cormier (R) after his heavyweight championship fight against Stipe Miocic at T-Mobile Arena on July 7, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He doesn't go to a UFC and watch a fight. I think it's a blessing in disguise that I've been training this long (back-to-back camps) because I wouldn't be in the shape I'm in now if I took some time off. Cormier said. "Thank you for blessing me Dana White, I thought I was just getting one".
The heavyweight contender later doubled down on this, claiming that Cormier is indeed afraid to fight Jon Jones. "I was actually OK just doing TV and chilling". I'm going to be this and I'm going to be that.' And the vast majority of the guys who do say those things, they never change. "I (called out) Manuwa and then Jones", Cormier said.
"The reality is with me, it's not like just because I'm not fighting I'm not making money".
NEW YORK - Not every fighter gets the chance to scream at Dana White.
Cormier is nearly guaranteed the biggest paycheck of his career to face Lesnar, who has always been one of the most profitable fighters when it comes to pay-per-views.
UFC 233 is set to take place on the night of January 26th inside The Honda Center in Anaheim, California, and Cormier may just be on the verge of defending his heavyweight title against Lesnar, provided, he beats Derrick Lewis this Saturday night at UFC 230.
UFC 230 takes place in NY at 02:00 GMT on Sunday. "But Ali (Abdelaziz) is a good manager, he put me in touch with Dana and I let him know exactly how I feel". According to USADA, Brock Lesnar will be eligible to fight for the UFC 233 event on January 26th, fully having served his suspension.
