Popeyes Offering Free Chicken If Derrick Lewis Beats Daniel Cormier

UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier stopped by as a guest on SiriusXM's Busted Open Radio with Matt Camp and Bully Ray to discuss UFC 232 at Madison Square Garden and it means to fight in a historic venue.

He was meeting an unlikely challenger in the form of Lewis, 33, who was appearing on consecutive main cards, having faced Russia's Alexander Volkov just four weeks ago at UFC 229 in Las Vegas, where he secured a stunning late KO win.

While Jones has beaten Cormier both times they've fought, a final fight between the two has obsessed fans throughout his suspension, especially since Cormier went up a weight class to win the UFC's heavyweight championship.

The defending champion, 39, had headed into the bout as strong favorite and with a remarkable 14-fight unbeaten career record at heavyweight.

"Two belts for each shoulder!"

Lewis is a massive slugger, but doesn't have anything near the kind of ground game he'd need to compete on even terms with Cormier.

"It's massive to me to headline the Garden", Cormier said. No matter how many times reporters ask him or how much adulation is finally coming his way, the answer is still yes.

His fight with Gustafsson will probably wind up being one of the biggest sellers of 2018 for the UFC, and Jones' presence alone will draw interest for any matchups with future opponents.

Back when he was in college, Lewis was sent to prison for 3 and a half years after violating probation stemming from a case where he beat the hell out of a Ku Klux Klan member who had a shotgun. White explains how pleased he is with Cormier's performance, calling him "one of the all-time great champions". That is why when he shows up, he wasn't at UFC just to watch a fight.

Cormier swears that's not going to happen, though. "But Ali (Abdelaziz) is a good manager, he put me in touch with Dana and I let him know exactly how I feel. I just had to stay longer in the gym". In Jones' last time out he would score a third round knockout over the current light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. "But where people see Derrick Lewis knock out guys and it scares them, it excites me".

Despite the talk of his impending retirement, Cormier insists he's not taking Lewis lightly.
