LeWIS continue fought if he failed to choose the heavyweight strap from Daniel Cormier in UFC 230 at November. He told TMZ Sports recently a short-time after the Cormier struggle, the UFC came a knocking and wanted him to make a quick return to struggle Stipe Miocic, some body that LeWIS has to struggle , but he wasn’t planning to accomplish it at the time the UFC offered.
That could sound like LeWIS was choosing and picking his competitor, but he had some good reasons for decreasing the flames with Miocic and Velasquez. And with a brand new contract at hand, he steps into his second successive heavyweight headlining showdown.
