On Saturday, November 3, Daniel Cormier and Derrick Lewis face off in the main event of UFC 230 for the UFC heavyweight championship. The two-division champion and heavy-handed slugger are set to square off at the world’s most iconic arena, Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Ahead of their highly-anticipated bout, UFC commentators John Gooden and Dan Hardy took the time to provide a tactical analysis of the contest with the tale of the tape and by taking an in-depth look at the highlights and careers of both fighters.
It promises to be an interesting fight, with Cormier entering the fight having never been knocked down as a heavyweight. Lewis, meanwhile, has recorded the most knockouts in UFC heavyweight history. Lewis has also landed the second-most significant ground strikes in heavyweight history, so Cormier will need to ensure he keeps top control if he utilizes his wrestling and takes the fight to the mat.
