UFC 230 Occurs on Saturday, November 3, 2018 in Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.
Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (21-1, 1 NC, 10 KOs, 4 SUBs) will defend his title against knockout artist Derrick Lewis (21-5, 18 KOs, 1 SUBs). The card issuers reside on 10pm ET that is starting.
Just one pay-per-view following the Khabib-McGregor superfight, the UFC is giving us a heavyweight title game. And it just so happens to feature one of UFC 229’s breakout star:”The Dark Beast” himself, Derrick Lewis. It’s 1 matter to score a dramatic, last-second comeback win in a fight you were getting dominated. However, Lewis topped that by following it up with the funniest post-fight interview in UFC history, on the greatest night in UFC history.
That’s 1 way of becoming a celebrity. And today, the one-dimensional knockout artist that never really seemed like a legitimate competitor is fighting to get the title under a month after having a beating in the hands of Alexander Volkov. Daniel Cormier’s probably drooling at the thought of a simple paycheck. It’ll also be his first heavyweight title defense.
Regardless of the UFC declaring a banger of a scrap between middleweight hulks Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, the massive Cuban has said that the fight won’t be taking place. Though we really hope this competition happens, we are apt to believe that the fighter when they said that they are not prepared. Let us hope he heals up in time.
If those 185-pounders don’t get it on, then there are still three crazy great middleweight matchups to look forward to. The biggest of them is that a rematch between former champions Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman, respectively ranked No. 2 and No. 3. Perennial contender Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza matches former WSOF champ David Branch, with both guys jockeying for a name position. The branch’s most fascinating prospect, Israel Adesanya, puts his undefeated record on the line against No. 6 Derek Brunson. Occasionally,”The previous Stylebender” resembles the second coming of a prime Anderson Silva, and everyone is hoping that this dude is for real.

UFC 230 Betting Lines, Predictions and Picks
Here’s a weird story. In a meeting with MMAJunkie only days after the Volkov struggle, Lewis came out and stated that he had no urge to headline UFC 230. That he’d already begun eating breakfast biscuits and his cardiovascular was nowhere near the level it needed to be in to realistically challenge for the title.
He finished that interview by reluctantly saying that it’d take a giant paycheck for him to leap right into a title fight with a few of the finest to ever do it. Later that afternoon, Dana White announced that Lewis will be fighting for the title. Seems like somebody got PAID.
However, the UFC’s greed is showing here. Lewis was nearly finished multiple times, and it was clear he couldn’t last five rounds. Now the UFC is putting him onto a card under a month later? That’s called exploiting a star turn. And while we adore how honorable DC is, it sure seems like he’s cherry picking here.
The last time Weidman and Rockhold met, the AKA surfer boy cracked the prior All-American wrestler and took the belt from him. Time has not softened the grudge between the two, and it was a close fight up until there. Rockhold has been knocked out twice, indicating that his brow is a serious weakness. Coincidentally, Weidman endured two brutal knockouts as well before rebounding back against Kelvin Gastelum.
Both these middleweights are good everywhere, though they have different approaches in every stage. Rockhold’s submission grappling is topnotch, but Weidman is a leading traditional wrestler. Weidman can box with all the very best of them, but Luke’s unorthodox kicks can do significant harm.
Ronaldo Souza can not appear to catch a rest. Among the most accomplished BJJ artists to enter the octagon, he’s been in multiple title eliminators, only to fall short in each one. Beating David Branch probably wouldn’t seal the bargain, but he could keep his name on a brief list of worthy challengers. Branch could vault into the title mix by simply taking out the well-regarded Brazilian.
Israel Adesanya has what required to be a celebrity: an engaging character and what’s more, an electric fighting style. He is obviously a exceptional striker, landing all eight limbs with exceptional accuracy and electricity. Obviously, like all great standup artists, he has to pass on the wrestler test, also Derek Brunson – a former collegiate wrestler – is more than qualified to dish that out.
