Lewis' Brilliant Response When Asked What He Eats Before Fights

In a clinical performance which badly exposed the gap in class and technical ability between the two fighters, Cormier made the first defense of his heavyweight title on Saturday via second-round submission in the main event of UFC 230.

"Not me. Some times, a couple of times, I had sex the same day as I fought", he added.

While defeating Lewis isn't a foregone conclusion, Cormier is a massive favorite heading into the fight, and a loss would be considered one of the bigger upsets in the history of the UFC's heavyweight division. However, he hasn't forgotten about Brock Lesnar. So, just to be standing opposite of him in an octagon is going to be insane, but once that bell rings and they yell fight, I am going to kill him.

In general, most fighters don't get to announce when they're going to retire. 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. You say, 'I'm going to do better when I get out. Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jones, the star-crossed former light heavyweight champion who beat him twice.

"I've been doing nothing but cardio. I ain't trying to fight for no title right now on a gas tank like that, s**t". "I'm an optimistic guy". Fist fighting every day for stupid stuff.

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. The title fight is set to take place on Saturday, November 3rd, for a packed crowd at the Madison Square Garden, in the New York City borough of Manhattan.

"I want The Fat beast to win so I can go show him a run in with me is broken bones and blood not bruises for that strap lol.#peaceintheviolence #princeofwar a prince can dream can't he".

That's why Cormier says he would potentially consider sticking around past his retirement deadline of March 2019 if the right opportunity presented itself but his decision won't be changed by Lesnar, Jones or the amount of monetary gain on the table to delay the end date for his career.
