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 issuers reside on 10pm ET that is starting.
Only 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 among UFC 229’s breakout star: »The Black Beast » himself, Derrick Lewis. It’s one matter to score a stunning, last-second comeback win in a battle you’re getting dominated. But Lewis topped that by following it up with the funniest post-fight meeting in UFC history, on the biggest night in UFC history.
That is 1 way of turning into a celebrity. And today, the one-dimensional knockout artist that never really seemed like a legitimate contender is fighting for the name under a month after taking a beating at the hands of Alexander Volkov. Daniel Cormier’s probably drooling at the notion of an easy paycheck. It is going to also be his first heavyweight title defense.
Despite the UFC announcing a banger of a storm involving middleweight hulks Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, the enormous Cuban has stated that the struggle won’t be taking place. Though we hope this competition happens, we are apt to believe that the fighter when they stated that they’re not ready. Let us hope he heals up punctually.
If those 185-pounders don’t get it on, there are still three crazy great middleweight matchups to anticipate. The biggest 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 meets former WSOF champ David Branch, with the two men jockeying to get a title position. The division’s most exciting 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 hoping 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 after the Volkov fight, Lewis came out and stated he had no desire to headline UFC 230. That he had already started eating breakfast snacks and also his cardiovascular was nowhere near the amount it had to be at to realistically challenge for the name.
He finished that interview by reluctantly saying that it would have a giant paycheck for him to jump right into a title fight with a few of the best to ever do it. Later that day, Dana White announced that Lewis will be battling for the name. Sounds like somebody got PAID.
Still, the UFC’s greed is revealing here. Lewis was almost finished multiple occasions, and it was clear he couldn’t survive five rounds. Now the UFC is putting him on a card under a month later? That is known as tapping a celebrity turn. And while we adore how honorable DC is, it sure sounds like he’s cherry picking here.
The last time Weidman and Rockhold met, the AKA surfer boy deciphered 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 been knocked out twice, indicating that his chin is a serious weakness. Coincidentally, Weidman endured two brutal knockouts also before bouncing back against Kelvin Gastelum.
Both these middleweights are good everywhere, although they have different strategies in each phase. 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 damage.
Ronaldo Souza can’t appear to catch a break. One of the very accomplished BJJ artists to ever enter the octagon, he’s been in multiple name eliminators, just to fall short in each one. Beating David Branch likely wouldn’t seal the deal, but he could keep his name on a brief list of worthy challengers. Branch could vault into the title mix by simply taking the well-regarded Brazilian.
Israel Adesanya has what required to be a celebrity: an engaging personality and more importantly, an electrical fighting style. He’s clearly a exceptional striker, landing all eight limbs with extraordinary accuracy and electricity. Of course, like all great standup artists, he’s got to pass the wrestler evaluation, and Derek Brunson – a former collegiate wrestler – is more than capable to dish that out.
