A lot of fans were excited about the fight and the following reason was that of the Daniel Cormier who previously announced in March 2019 that he was going to retire.
The fans originally thought if he ever comes back he would fight Jon Jones, his long-time rival. In the end, the fight was arranged versus Derrick Lewis who won against Alexander Volkov by KO in UFC 229. But Cormier stated that he was offered such a good deal that he couldn’t refuse. Besides Jon Jones, he also had to face Brock Lesnar for the first defense of his heavyweight title in 2019.
But, despite all offers he said:
“There was no way I could say no, honestly. Especially with a guy like Derrick, who is not known for the best cardio. I’ve got to start fast and hope I can push harder than him, even with a short camp.”
If Cormier(21-1) defeats Lewis(21-5), he will most definitely once again fight with Brock Lesnar to defend the heavyweight title. That won’t be much of a problem for Cormier, he only wants the fight against Jon Jones whom he lost to in UFC 214. The match versus Jon Jones made a no contest due to Jones’ failed test for use of a performance-enhancing drug and was suspended for 15 months.
