Daniel Cormier is one of the more honest and forthcoming fighters in the UFC. TMZ caught up with him and he was on point as usual. He spoke about Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones, and Derrick Lewis. Being that Lewis is his dance partner this weekend, his thoughts on Lewis are the most telling.
“To me, Derrick Lewis is more impressive because of his ability to fight. This is a young man that was in jail for a long time in prison and society gave up on him. He kept fighting and turned himself into a millionaire. Those are the things that matter. That type of self-belief is most worrisome.”
DC takes on Lewis this weekend for Cormier’s UFC heavyweight title. It remains to be seen what happens with the light heavyweight championship.
