UFC 230 Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis Fight Pick & Preview

UFC 230 has flown under the radar, mostly due to the UFC not being able to decide on a real main event until a few weeks ago.  But, here we are now with Daniel Cormier defending his newly captured UFC Championship belt versus the heavy handed KO artist Derrick Lewis.  Lets take a closer look at these fighters and then I'll make my main event fight pick for UFC 230: Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis. 

Derrick Lewis is coming into this UFC title shot with an overall MMA record of 21-5.  Lewis is a power punching finisher with 18 of his wins coming via KO/TKO. His last fight was a perfect example of the power this man possesses. Just when it looked like he was headed for a decision loss, Lewis unleashed a right hand from hell that knocked Alexander Volkov into another dimension.  

Lewis can bang!  But, his gas tank is highly suspect.  The fight with Francis Ngannou was an absolute snoozefest and will go down in history as one of the most boring fights ever.  He redeemed himself last time out, but Daniel Cormier is on another level. 

Danile Cormier is officially 21-1 in MMA.  That one official loss is to Jon Jones and who knows if Jones was natural then, as we all know he tested positive for PED's their second fight.  Cormier is a wrestling expert that has learned how to blend in chingasos perfectly to get his desired results!  

Cormier is the Lightweight and Heavyweight Champion for a reason.  The man can absolutely fight, and he trains at one of the best MMA camps in the world.  Cormier has a great wrestling pedigree, trains with top MMA fighters, and has loads of experience.  That is the combination of elements a fighter has to face when they step in the cage and face off against Daniel Cormier.  

Lewis is a huge underdog on paper.  But, fights aren't fought on paper.  Lewis can absolutely win this fight.  All he has to do is land one of those missiles he has chambered in his MMA arsenal.  

Now that is easier said than done.  Lewis is facing a fighter with a proven arsenal of MMA weapons, a deep gas tank, and someone that has been tested at the highest levels.  Those things are cryptonite to a one trick pony type fighter like Derrick Lewis.  

Look for Cormier to start off slow. He doesn't want to run into a right hand from Lewis while Lewis is fresh and powered up.  Cormier will make Lewis work and draw his power down.  Then, Cormier will get a clinch, score a takedown and Lewis will stay on his back until the fight is stopped!
