Tonight the “Black Beast” lost in a second round submission to Daniel Cormier. The Houston representative didn’t have his best outing as Cormier wisely used his solid wrestling background to take advantage of Lewis.
Most of the fight took place on the ground where Daniel excels. Lewis spent the majority of the match trying to gain his footing with Cormier on his back.
Many fans were hoping for an upset for Lewis who possesses instant knockout power but left disappointed and disinterested in Cormier’s post fight interview.
Much respect goes to Lewis to taking the fight a month after a last second KO victory at UFC 229. I’ll be looking forward to seeing whats next for the Black Beast.
