As is tradition, UFC double champion Daniel Cormier joins Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show via Skype to (2:45) discuss how a sneeze nearly cost him a chance at history, recap (5:53) his win over Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 in Madison Square Garden, (9:51) eyeing the UFC’s PPV on March 3 in Las Vegas for a potential fight with Brock Lesnar and (11:00) why he doesn’t need a third fight with Jon Jones.
UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier joined me to discuss his UFC 230 win over Derrick Lewis, turning a corner as a popular figure in the sport, why wrestlers aren’t becoming fighters as often, pursuing a broadcasting career after fighting and more. A fun interview where I don’t mention Jon Jones or Brock Lesnar once.
The Double Champ, Daniel Cormier, joins Jim and Matt in-studio for the first half of the show and talks about his UFC 230 Heavyweight title defense against Derrick Lewis, the possibility of fighting Jon Jones or Brock Lesnar next, his relationship with Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Demetrious Johnson/Ben Askren “trade”, and much more. Plus, the guys break down all the action from Moncton, Yair Rodriguez replacing Frankie Edgar against The Korean Zombie at UFC Denver, and Mighty Mouse and Ben Askren switching places in a historic MMA trade.
