After defeating Derrick Lewis via second-round submission in last night's UFC 230 main event, Daniel Cormier revealed that he had injured his back that same morning and was nearly forced to pullout of the contest. So me challenging Daniel Cormier would be making it a personal thing.

Lesnar is expected to hold the championship at least until the Royal Rumble, but could end up unable to compete at the event.

"You know what surprised me, I took that last shot, he punched me in the eye on the way in and I was blinking for about 30 seconds".

Lesnar became the WWE Universal Champion last Friday at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view, and given the fact that Lesnar isn't likely to defend his title any time soon, he could still be a WWE champion by the time a fight with Cormier materializes.

The bookies have Lewis listed as a significant underdog, and nobody really seems to be giving him a chance.

On a third fight with Cormier: "There's no reason to grant (Cormier) a fight". "That's what that is". The fan favorite has had to fight through more adversity than your average "silver-spoon" athlete, to reach his current stature in the fight game. He was still dealing with a hand injury four weeks ago.

Daniel Cormier made sure he'd be leaving Madison Square Garden in New York City with at least one title still around his waist. Create history by becoming the first champion to defend titles in multiple weight classes, and do it in a historic venue.

Cormier says nothing has been decided yet on which fight the UFC would favor much less the one he'd prefer to land but there are plenty of factors-including money-playing into what actually unfolds.

While speaking to ESPN's Brett Okamoto after Saturday's UFC 230 event, Dana White was asked if Brock Lesnar is going to be Daniel Cormier's next opponent and indicated that was the plan. All the right pieces are in place. "I feel like being a WWE champion, too". All he needed to do in order to complete his improbable climb to the top was get through Daniel Cormier.
