Lewis: Daniel Cormier thinks I’m easy
“The reason I think he took the fight with me is because Jon Jones was already fighting in (December),” Lewis said today after a workout at Madison Square Garden in New York. “He didn’t want to wait until January and hear all the media talk about, ‘Why is Cormier not fighting for the 205 belt?’ They’re already saying he’s basically scared to fight Jones right now, anyway. He feels like it would be perfect to fight a guy like me that don’t have as much skills on short notice before the Jones fight and he thinks it’s going to be an easy fight for him.
“Yeah, I think he’s scared to fight Jones. The guy beat him twice.”
