UFC 230 Fighting Odds – Cormier vs. Lewis MMA Lines
UFC 230 takes place on Saturday, November 3, 2018 in Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.
Heavyweight winner Daniel Cormier (21-1, 1 NC, 10 KOs, 4 SUBs) will defend his title against knockout artist Derrick Lewis (21-5, 18 KOs, 1 SUBs). The card issuers reside on pay-per-view starting 10pm ET.
Just one pay-per-view after the Khabib-McGregor superfight, the UFC is providing us a heavyweight title match. And it just so happens to feature one of UFC 229’s breakout star:”The Black Beast” himself, Derrick Lewis. It is one matter to score a dramatic, last-second comeback win in a fight you’re getting dominated. But Lewis topped that by following it up with the funniest post-fight interview in UFC history, on the biggest night in UFC history.
That is 1 way of becoming a star. And today, the one-dimensional knockout artist who never actually seemed like a valid contender is fighting to get the title less than a month after having a beating in the hands of Alexander Volkov. Daniel Cormier’s probably drooling at the thought of a simple paycheck. It is going to also be his first title protection.
Despite the UFC declaring a banger of a storm involving middleweight hulks Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, the massive Cuban has stated that the struggle will not be taking place. Though we really hope this contest happens, we tend to believe that the fighter when they said that they are not prepared. Let’s hope he heals up in time.
If those 185-pounders don’t get it on, then there are still three mad good middleweight matchups to anticipate. The biggest of these is that a rematch between former champions Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman, respectively rated No. 2 and No. 3. Perennial contender Ronaldo”Jacare” Souza matches former WSOF champ David Branch, together with the two men jockeying for a title position. The branch’s most fascinating prospect, Israel Adesanya, sets his undefeated record on the line against No. 6 Derek Brunson. Occasionally,”The previous Stylebender” resembles the next coming of a prime Anderson Silva, and everybody is hoping that this dude is for real.

UFC 230 Betting Lines, Predictions and Picks
Here’s a weird story. In a meeting with MMAJunkie just days following the Volkov fight, Lewis came out and stated that he had no urge to headline UFC 230. That he had already started eating breakfast biscuits and also his cardiovascular was nowhere near the amount it had to be at to realistically challenge for the title.
He finished that interview by saying that it would take a giant paycheck for him to jump right into a title fight with one of the best to ever do it. Later that day, Dana White announced that Lewis would be battling for the name. Sounds like somebody got PAID.
However, the UFC’s greed is revealing here. Lewis was almost finished multiple occasions, and it was clear he could not survive five rounds. Now the UFC is placing him onto a card less than a month later? That is known as tapping a star turn. And while we love how honorable DC is, it sure seems like he is cherry picking here.
The last time Weidman and Rockhold met, the AKA surfer boy deciphered the former All-American wrestler and took the belt from him. Time has not softened the grudge between the two, and it was a close fight until that point. Rockhold has been knocked out twice, indicating that his brow is a severe weakness. Coincidentally, Weidman endured two brutal knockouts also before rebounding back against Kelvin Gastelum.
These two middleweights are good everywhere, though they have different approaches in every phase. Rockhold’s submission grappling is top notch, but Weidman is a stellar traditional wrestler. Weidman can box with the very best of these, but Luke’s unorthodox kicks can do major harm.
Ronaldo Souza can not seem to catch a break. Among the most accomplished BJJ artists to ever enter the octagon, he’s been in multiple title eliminators, just to fall short in every one. Beating David Branch likely would not seal the bargain, but he could keep his title on a short list of worthy challengers. Branch could vault in the title mix by taking the well-regarded Brazilian.
Israel Adesanya has what it takes to be a star: an engaging personality and more importantly, an electrical fighting style. He’s obviously a special striker, landing all eight limbs with extraordinary accuracy and power. Of course, like all great standup artists, he’s got to pass the wrestler test, and Derek Brunson – a former collegiate wrestler – is much more than qualified to dish out that.
