Daniel Cormier Responds To Derrick Lewis


Daniel Cormier Reacts To Derrick Lewis’ Remarks

Speaking to reporters after a workout session, “The Black Beast” said he believes Cormier took a fight with him to avoid a third bout with Jon Jones. “DC” later told those same reporters that he isn’t taking the comment seriously (via MMAJunkie.com:

“I was never offered the fight against Jon Jones. Nobody told me to fight Jon Jones. I think Derrick has said it, himself, openly that some of the things (he says) you take with a grain of salt, some of the things you believe what he’s saying. He’s just bull(expletive) on that one. In learning about Derrick Lewis, it didn’t make me think, ‘This is going to be an easier fight.’ It’s going to be tougher than the general public may believe. It made me understand him knocking out Alexander Volkov (at UFC 229) wasn’t the exception – it was his expectation because he has fought from the very pits of hell, and he scraped his way back up to who he is today.”
