But Lewis (21-5) showed he's no chicken when comes to accepting title fights on short notice: He's fighting Cormier for the belt Saturday at Madison Square Garden just one month after knockout win at UFC 229.
American Cormier controlled the bout from the start, grabbing a takedown after barely a minute in the first round.
As Daniel Cormier prepares to defend his UFC heavyweight title for the first time, all the talk surrounds a future fight with Brock Lesnar. In fact, Cormier is now the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously and then defend one of them inside the Octagon.

Lewis served 3½ years in prison in his early 20s stemming from a parole violation when he was charged with aggrevated assault shortly after high school.
Lewis fought on that same UFC 229 card as McGregor and Nurmagomedov, and was getting thoroughly beaten by Alexander Volkov for nearly the entire three rounds that they fought before he landed a ideal punch and finished the fight with follow-up strikes in the fight's final 10 seconds.
Lewis earned the shot at the title after beating Alexander Volkov barely a month ago, but his quick return to the octagon failed to pay off after he tapped out in the second round of the clash in NY.

The last time Cormier and Lesnar came face-to-face was after DC defeated Miocic, and the meeting ended in a physical altercation.
"A lot of people have to understand that I've been doing this for nine years and I fought at a championship level for eight of them", Cormier said.
"When you get to those numbers and you get 300,000 extra pay-per-view buys, at that number of pay-per-views, that's a big, big number". "The Black Beast" leaps in with some big punches and appears to partially connect with a right hand. Weidman finally got caught and clung to Souza's leg as he tried to find his bearings. Adesanya, who has earned comparisons to a young Anderson Silva, danced in the middle of the octagon on a night where a new star was seemingly born.
