  • Daniel Cormier Jon Jones

At this point in his career, WWE has a great interest in Daniel Cormier coming in for an announce team position.

Daniel Cormier has cemented his spot as the baddest man on the planet with a dominant second round submission win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230.

No disrespect to Lewis, but he never had much of a chance in this one. Cormier executed multiple takedowns, buried "The Black Beast" with suffocating top control and tore into him with short bursts of punishing ground-and-pound.

"It's insane that people say me and Lesnar would be a mega fight when the reality is the mega fight is Jones and I", Cormier told FloCombat. The tapout followed soon after.

Daniel Cormier (39 years of age) went on to say that the last-minute injury served as a reminder that he is getting old.

Jones has ruled out a trilogy, and Cormier's next challenger will surely give him a better fight than Lewis.

In the fourth quarter, the Boilermakers scored on runs of 42 yards and 40 yards, a 43-yard pass and a 41-yard interception return. Purdue coach Jeff Brohm is mobbed by fans after the Boilermakers upset No. 2 Ohio State, 49-20.

"I told him a long time ago, 'If you're my champion the rest of my career, I'm cool with that, '" White said. Lewis may have all the heart in the world, but that doesn't tend to be much help against a fighter as skilled as Cormier.

"Brock and I haven't talked in a little while".

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.

Jordan Rinaldi topped Jason Knight in the prelim main event on FOX Sports 1, as Sijara Eubanks, Sheymon Moraes and Lyman Good all earned wins. Souza and Weidman were engaged in a brutal slugfest that kept both fighters on their feet for most of the first two rounds. Weidman finally got caught and clung to Souza's leg as he tried to find his bearings. He's won eight of his last nine fights (three straight) on the strength of his significant knockout power that makes him a threat should he connected on that one devastating punch. Souza got a couple of punches in for good measure until referee Dan Miragliotta mercifully stopped the fight.

In other middleweight action, rising star Israel Adesanya remained unbeaten by knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round. After fending of several takedown attempts, Adesanya created enough space to land a knee that stunned Brunson.
