The former Strikeforce Hw and current Ufc light-Hw and Hw champion Daniel Cormier entered this fight with a professional mma record of 21-1-0 (67% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.1 heavyweight in the world. ‘DC’ suffered his only loss against Jon Jones in their first fight in 2015 (Jones vs Cormier I), since then he has won six bouts beating Volkan Oezdemir (Daniel Cormier vs Volkan Oezdemir) and Stipe Miocic in 2018 (Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier). In 2017 he had also faced Jon Jones for the second time losing via KO, but then the result was overturned in a no-contest since ‘Bones’ tested positive for Turinabol (Cormier vs Jones 2).
His opponent, Derrick Lewis, has an official record of 21-5-0 (90% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.3 in the same weight class. He was defeated by Mark Hunt in 2017 (Derrick Lewis vs Mark Hunt) but then, in 2018, he has won over Marcin Tybura (Derrick Lewis vs Marcin Tybura), Francis Ngannou (Francis Ngannou vs Derrick Lewis) and Alexander Volkov (Alexander Volkov vs Derrick Lewis).
