Cormier Makes Short Work Of Lewis To Create UFC History

Cormier Makes Short Work Of Lewis To Create UFC History
By PJ Browne Updated

Daniel Cormier successfully defended his UFC heavyweight belt for the first time on Saturday night.

The victory over Derrick Lewis meant that Cormier - who is also the UFC light heavyweight champion - became the first fighter to defend both belts.

The 39-year-old made short work of Lewis. 2:14 in the second round, Herb Dean called a halt to the bout after Lewis tapped out with a rear naked choke locked in by Cormier.

Lewis was back in the Octagon for the title shot less than a month after defeating Alexander Volkov in a thrilling win at UFC 229.

In his post-fight interview, Cormier praised his opponent and also called out Brock Lesnar for his next night.

"Brock Lesnar, when you come, bring that brand new WWE title too because I feel like being a WWE champion," said Cormier.

"Let's go, Brock. Bring that belt with you if you come to my house."
