The media event will go down this afternoon to promote Jones' awaited return against Alexander Gustafsson at December 29's UFC 232 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
For all of the fear surrounding Derrick Lewis' big right hand, UFC two-division champion Daniel Cormier made sure not to give him a chance to use it.
"It's history, baby", said Cormier, who improved his heavyweight record to 15-0 (4-0 in UFC).
"Me getting to fight Brock Lesnar - because I remember my partner, Cain Velasquez fighting him in 2010". He gets to carry two UFC championship belts everywhere he goes and has a steady side gig as a talking head on the promotion's broadcasts. Then on October 9, the UFC announced that Daniel Cormier would defend the heavyweight title against No. 2-ranked Derrick Lewis. "Legacy matters to me".
The preliminary fights will get underway at 6:30pm ET and 3:30pm PT, with the main card kicking off at 10pm ET and 7pm PT.
The win for the veteran Brazilian, 38, will fuel calls for a title shot against the victor of the planned match-up between current middleweight champ Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum next year.
Trump, Xi upbeat on ending trade war
It comes ahead of a key meeting between Mr Trump and China's President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit this month. Trump said that in early October China wanted to come in and make a deal, but he told them they weren't ready.
Easy night for Cormier.
Cormier, who said Lesnar would be at the fight at Madison Square Garden, added: "This time I would advise him to stay out of the octagon".
Cormier was a significant betting favorite going into Saturday, and it was clear why.
"The reality is with me, it's not like just because I'm not fighting I'm not making money".
"Last time, he pushed me across the cage, and I hate that visual".
"I've done enough to that guy". But when I was on the card with Brock, it did over 1.1 million buys.
It was just a few months ago when Lewis joked that Cormier had "disrespected" Popeyes in a commercial he filmed for the 7th annual World MMA Awards. The UFC has built up Conor McGregor, built his backstory and I love him. Lewis mimicked Cormier's moves from the video at the news conference and both fighters erupted into laughter.
