UFC 230 Occurs on Saturday, November 3, 2018 in Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.
Heavyweight winner 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 pay-per-view 10pm ET that is starting.
Just one pay-per-view following 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 thing to score a dramatic, last-second comeback win in a fight you’re getting dominated. But Lewis topped that by following it up with the funniest post-fight meeting in UFC history, on the greatest night in UFC history.
That’s one way of turning into a star. And today, the one-dimensional knockout artist who never actually seemed like a legitimate contender is fighting to get the name less than a month after having a beating at the hands of Alexander Volkov. Daniel Cormier’s probably drooling at the thought of a simple paycheck. It’ll also be his first title defense.
Despite the UFC declaring a banger of a storm involving middleweight hulks Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, the enormous Cuban has stated that the fight will not be happening. Though we really hope this contest happens, we tend to trust 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, then there are still three mad good middleweight matchups to anticipate. The largest of these is a rematch between former winners Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman, respectively ranked No. 2 and No. 3. Perennial contender Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza matches former WSOF champ David Branch, together with both guys jockeying for a title position. The branch’s most fascinating prospect, Israel Adesanya, puts his undefeated record on the line against No. 6 Derek Brunson. At times,”The previous Stylebender” looks like the second coming of a prime Anderson Silva, and everyone is expecting that this dude is for real.

UFC 230 Betting Lines, Predictions and Picks
Here is a weird story. In an interview with MMAJunkie only days following the Volkov struggle, Lewis came out and said that he had no desire to headline UFC 230. That he had already started eating breakfast biscuits and also his cardio was nowhere near the amount it needed to be at to virtually challenge for the title.
He finished that interview by saying that it’d have a giant paycheck for him to jump right into a title fight with a few of the finest to ever do it. Later that day, Dana White announced that Lewis will be fighting for the title. Seems like someone got PAID.
Still, the UFC’s greed is showing here. Lewis was almost finished multiple times, and it was apparent he couldn’t last five rounds. Now the UFC is putting him onto a card less than a month after? That is known as tapping a star turn. And while we love 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 the two, and it was a close fight until that point. Rockhold has since been knocked out two, indicating that his chin is a severe weakness. Coincidentally, Weidman endured two brutal knockouts also before rebounding back against Kelvin Gastelum.
Both these middleweights are good everywhere, although they have different approaches in each phase. Rockhold’s submission grappling is top notch, but Weidman is a stellar classic wrestler. Weidman can box with all the very best of these, but Luke’s unorthodox kicks can do major harm.
Ronaldo Souza can’t appear to catch a rest. One of the very accomplished BJJ artists to enter the octagon, he’s been in multiple title eliminators, only to fall short in every one. Beating David Branch likely would not seal the bargain, but he could keep his title on a brief list of worthy challengers. Branch could vault into the title mix by simply taking the well-regarded Brazilian.
Israel Adesanya has everything it takes to be a celebrity: an engaging character and what’s more, an electrical fighting style. He is obviously a special striker, landing all of eight limbs with exceptional accuracy and electricity. Of course, like all great standup artists, he has to pass the wrestler evaluation, also Derek Brunson – a former collegiate wrestler – is more than qualified to dish that out.
