Daniel Cormier submits Derrick Lewis, calls out Brock Lesnar and kisses Joe Rogan

It was a busy night for 'DC'

As if you needed reminding, Daniel Cormier is one of the greatest of all time.

Cormier remains undefeated at heavyweight as he defended his title and status as the baddest man on the planet with a flawless performance against the always dangerous Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230 on Saturday night.

As recently as a month ago, ‘DC’ wasn’t supposed to feature at UFC 230 but he couldn’t turn down the opportunity of a lucrative defence against Lewis.

The reigning heavyweight and light heavyweight champion accepted a bout against one of the most terrifying knockout artists walking the planet and looked nothing short of dominant.

Cormier gave Lewis a wrestling lesson at Madison Square Garden and encountered little resistance before forcing Lewis to tap out to a rear naked choke in the second round.

With two belts draped around his shoulders, Cormier was in typically fine form and with retirement looming, the 39-year-old doubled down on his desire to secure one last payday against the former UFC heavyweight champion and crossover pay-per-view superstar, Brock Lesnar.

“Brock Lesnar, when you come then bring that brand new WWE title because I feel like being a WWE champion too,” Cormier said in his post-fight interview.

“Let’s go! Let’s go, Brock. Bring that belt with you if you come to my house.

“Joe Rogan, you are the man but I want to kiss you!”

We’re definitely going to miss Cormier when he hangs up his gloves, which will likely take place next year.
