UFC 230 takes place on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 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 airs live on pay-per-view 10pm ET that is starting.
Only one pay-per-view after the Khabib-McGregor superfight, the UFC is giving us a heavyweight title match. Plus it just so happens to feature one of UFC 229’s breakout star:“The Black Beast“ himself, Derrick Lewis. It is one matter to score a stunning, last-second comeback win in a battle you’re becoming 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 is 1 way of becoming a celebrity. And today, the one-dimensional knockout artist who never actually seemed like a legitimate competitor is fighting to get the title under a month after having a beating at the hands of Alexander Volkov. Daniel Cormier’s probably drooling at the notion of a simple paycheck. It is going to also be his first title protection.
Regardless of the UFC declaring a banger of a storm involving 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 contest happens, we are apt to believe that the fighter when they said that they are not ready. Let us hope he heals up in time.
If those 185-pounders don’t get it on, there are still three mad great middleweight matchups to anticipate. The biggest of these is that a rematch between former winners Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman, respectively rated No. 2 and No. 3. Perennial contender Ronaldo“Jacare“ Souza matches former WSOF champ David Branch, together with the two guys jockeying for a name position. The division’s most fascinating prospect, Israel Adesanya, sets his undefeated record on the line against No. 6 Derek Brunson. At times,“The previous Stylebender“ resembles the next coming of a prime Anderson Silva, and everybody is hoping that this dude is for real.

UFC 230 Betting Lines, Predictions and Picks
Here’s a weird story. In an interview with MMAJunkie just days following the Volkov fight, Lewis came out and stated that he had no urge to headline UFC 230. That he’d already begun eating breakfast biscuits and also his cardiovascular was nowhere near the amount it had to be in to virtually challenge for the name.
He ended that interview by saying that it’d have a giant paycheck to allow him to leap into a title fight with one 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 occasions, and it was clear he could not last five rounds. The UFC is placing him onto a card less than a month after? That is called exploiting a celebrity turn. And while we adore how honorable DC is, it sure seems like he is cherry picking here.
The previous time Weidman and Rockhold met, the AKA surfer boy cracked the former All-American wrestler and took the belt from him. Time has not softened the grudge between them both, and it was a close fight until that point. Rockhold has since been knocked out two, suggesting that his chin is a serious weakness. Coincidentally, Weidman suffered two brutal knockouts also before rebounding back against Kelvin Gastelum.
Both these middleweights are good everywhere, though they have different approaches in each stage. Rockhold’s submission grappling is topnotch, but Weidman is a leading classic wrestler. Weidman can box with all the best of them, but Luke’s unorthodox kicks can do significant damage.
Ronaldo Souza can’t seem to catch a rest. Among the most accomplished BJJ artists to enter the octagon, he has been in multiple name eliminators, just to fall short in each one. Beating David Branch likely would not seal the deal, but he could keep his name on a short list of worthy challengers. Branch could vault into the title mix by simply taking out the well-regarded Brazilian.
Israel Adesanya has what it takes to be a star: an engaging personality and more importantly, an electric fighting style. He’s clearly a exceptional striker, landing all of eight limbs with exceptional accuracy and power. Obviously, like all great standup artists, he’s got to pass the wrestler evaluation, also Derek Brunson – a former collegiate wrestler – is much more than capable to dish out that.
