Lewis' Brilliant Response When Asked What He Eats Before Fights

Lewis' Brilliant Response When Asked What He Eats Before Fights

Cormier finished the fight 4-for-4 on takedowns and outlanded Lewis 19-4 on significant strikes, according to FightMetric.

Yes, the answer is yes. If I knew he was going to push me I would have dug my heels.

Lewis propelled himself to the title bout with a thunderous victory over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229.

A Houston-area Popeyes is now giving fans an extra added incentive to cheer for hometown kid Derrick Lewis at UFC 230 as he prepares for the fight of his career. "I like Gastelum in that fight".

For all of the fear surrounding Derrick Lewis' big right hand, UFC two-division champion Daniel Cormier made sure not to give him a chance to use it. Cormier won by first round knockout. Jones was soon stripped of his titles and suspended by the UFC after being arrested on felony hit-and-run charges.

He will leave without regrets, even though he technically lost twice to Jones.

It's an enviable position to be in for a fighter on his way out of the game, but it doesn't sound like Cormier has fully decided what to do. "I beat you once and I can beat you again".

Khashoggi murderers left Turkey over Saudi King’s phone call: Opposition party leader
He entered the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul a month ago to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage, but never left. A critic of the Saudi royal family, Khashoggi had been living in exile in the United States.

"I didn't train as hard as I should have". So, just to be standing opposite of him in an octagon is going to be insane, but once that bell rings and they yell fight, I am going to kill him. This is MMA, not baseball.

The main event for the UFC's annual trip to MSG only came to fruition last month and will surprisingly see Lewis fight for the second time in the space of a few weeks. "When you're in the cage and they close the door, that's when I know you'll be there". This win was overturned shortly after the fight as Jones would test positive for banned substances.

Although there are tremendous fights on tap this weekend at Madison Square Garden and a slew of outstanding events on the calendar before these bitter rivals finally collide in the Octagon at the end of the year, Friday's press conference lit the fuse on these explosive contests and now it's just a matter of time before the fireworks go off at UFC 232 in Las Vegas.

"I've done enough to that guy".

In the evening's co-main event we'll be getting to see the first ever female super fight in MMA history as bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes moves up and looks to dethrone the featherweight queen Cris Cyborg.

That's when Eubanks got White on the phone. I've fought at the championship level for eight of them. Whittaker's more of a striker, I don't see him as extremely risky on the feet but he's extremely tough, durable and he's got good striking. "I feel like I've said what I had to say about the situation".
