Cormier Admits Lesnar Match-Up Is Tougher Than Derrick Lewis • MMA News
Daniel Cormier is ready to make his remaining stroll to the Octagon. “DC” efficiently defended his heavyweight title this previous weekend (Sat. November three, 2018) at UFC 230 from Madison Sq. Backyard. Cormier has remained adamant that he has just one battle left in his combined martial arts (MMA) profession after the win. That battle will doubtless be a superfight towards Brock Lesnar in early 2019.
Lesnar must fulfill a number of United States Anti-Doping Company (USADA) obligations earlier than being eligible to return. As soon as that’s sorted out, “The Beast” will doubtless be set to problem Cormier for the heavyweight title. The match-up, nevertheless, is an fascinating one. Lesnar is a embellished wrestler in his personal proper. Ought to they share the Octagon, the wrestling will doubtless cancel out, leaving a putting battle to ensue.
Cormier ought to have the benefit in that division. Talking to MMA Junkie Radio lately, Cormier mentioned probably preventing Lesnar. “DC” admitted that the match-up is a more durable one than his battle towards Lewis:
“I think it’s tougher, because he kind of cancels out the wrestling,” Cormier stated. “I can’t simply go take Brock Lesnar down at will like I used to be capable of with Derrick Lewis. And he’s large and athletic and tremendous quick.
“Also, he has a size 5X glove, so if he’s able to land one of those strikes, it could be the end of the night. I truly do believe it’s the tougher fight.”
What do you consider Cormier calling Lesnar a more durable battle than Lewis?
