UFC 230: Cormier vs. Lewis underwent a long and winding road to finally arrive at Madison Square Garden, but we’ve finally arrived with a heavyweight championship main event.
It took a long time for UFC officials to nail down the title fight between champion Daniel Cormier and No. 2 ranked heavyweight Derrick Lewis. Cormier will be risking a potential mega-payday with Brock Lesnar, but he agreed to step in and give UFC 230 a Madison Square Garden worthy headliner.
Hot on the heels of the main event is a cobbled together co-main event as well, as Chris Weidman faces Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in a pivotal bout in the middleweight division. The winner is likely to earn a title shot with a victory.
