Cormier called out Lesnar for a blockbuster heavyweight bout.
With the the victory, Cormier has become the first man to defend both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight belts.
Back when he was in college, Lewis was sent to prison for 3 and a half years after violating probation stemming from a case where he beat the hell out of a Ku Klux Klan member who had a shotgun.
Lewis opened the fight by throwing a bunch of kicks, but it was Cormier who controlled the action from the outset, using his Olympic-level wrestling to score a single-leg takedown and get the fight to the ground early.

On a third fight with Cormier: "There's no reason to grant (Cormier) a fight". Many fans had criticized the match-up, but the UFC was desperate for a UFC 230 main event which would justify the Pay Per View pricing. All he needed to do in order to complete his improbable climb to the top was get through Daniel Cormier. "Legacy matters to me".
"It's where all the famous fighters put down their mark in the sport", he said. He's won eight of his last nine fights (three straight) on the strength of his significant knockout power that makes him a threat should he connected on that one devastating punch. Cormier said. "Thank you for blessing me Dana White, I thought I was just getting one". The second bout previous year was changed to a no-contest when Jones failed a doping test that kept him out of the sport for 15 months.
Cormier retaliated in the fast-food fight by throwing his weight behind burger joint Carl's Jr. And he'll be keeping an eye on his waistline - the one he expects to still be wrapped with the title belt after Saturday night.
