Popeyes Offering Free Chicken If Derrick Lewis Beats Daniel Cormier

On Episode 2 of UFC 230 Embedded, two-division champion Daniel Cormier does a workout in his swimming pool as his opponent, heavyweight title challenger Derrick Lewis, improves his cardio outdoors. A 6-foot-3, 265-pound Texan (21-5-1 with 18 KOs), Lewis got the title shot after dropping Alexander Volkov with a heavy right-hand in the third round of their showdown at UFC 229 on October 6 in Las Vegas.

Last July, Cormier became the first reigning UFC light heavyweight champion to win the UFC heavyweight title when he stopped Stipe Miocic at UFC 226.

The main card on pay-per-view can be purchased for $64.99.

"I win the fight, I go, 'Brock, you obviously wanted it. Get your a** in here if you wanted it.' Now, I didn't know he was going to push me". "You have a lot of pressure on you, and especially to have it in your hometown in the main event, the pressure was on". There was no Paul Heyman around but Lesnar's mic work surprised even Cormier. I'm going to be this and I'm going to be that.' And the vast majority of the guys who do say those things, they never change.

"I believe that if I didn't go through stuff that I went through in my past, I wouldn't be as successful like I am now here today". "I'm sure the crowd's gonna have my back, and I'm gonna make them proud".

"It's where all the famous fighters put down their mark in the sport", he said.

Police said the sisters left their family home and were placed in a shelter after an earlier disappearance in December 2017. Did the sisters apply for asylum? Rotana was enrolled at George Mason University, in Fairfax, but left in the spring.

For all his Instagram antics, Lewis maintains that he is taking this fight serious, and that's all that matters to him.

But Cormier has solidified himself as one of MMA's greatest fighters and most dominant wrestlers. Jones and I may be the two best fighters in the history of the sport.

Cormier said a KO was the only way he could lose. "It's just coming to a head now".

Lewis has also cashed on some notoriety that came from a PG-13 answer as to why he stripped off his shorts inside the cage after beating Volkov. The location is also offering Lewis free chicken for life regardless of whether he wins or loses, according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani. Carl's changed its handle to "Daniel Cormier fan account" and tweeted, "DMs are open DC let's shake this out".

But Cormier didn't get to the penultimate fight of his career by overlooking anyone. And he'll be keeping an eye on his waistline - the one he expects to still be wrapped with the title belt after Saturday night.
