Lewis' Brilliant Response When Asked What He Eats Before Fights

Derrick Lewis delivered an epic performance both in the octagon and on the microphone just a few weeks ago at UFC 229, and the heavyweight destroyer will now step back into the cage on short notice against double champion Daniel Cormier in Madison Square Garden.

What is one of Derrick Lewis' favorite meals? "Don't think for a second I'm making pennies when I fight Jones, 'cause both of our pay-per-views have done over 800,000 buys". Cormier won by first round knockout. Lewis also won and continued his ascent into contention. A shirtless Cormier had starred in a parody video of "All About That Bass", and danced with drumsticks out of a Popeye's box.

With the fight only three days out now, Lewis has again addressed the issue of why he is fighting Cormier, and not someone else. [For example], Conor McGregor. Saturday night he faces Daniel Cormier for the UFC heavyweight title in one of the most high profile main events of the year. "It's not going to be a problem at all".

"I see Brock, right, and here's the insane thing about this".

Cormier was a bit of a surprise main eventer in a card that has been shuffled because of injuries and the dire need to find a quality main event at MSG. Plus, the allure of putting his name on the top of the marquee for a title defense at MSG appealed to his ego. "Stuff like that means something to me, which is a bit unsafe because the UFC knows, if they dangle the carrot, they know they can get me to bite by putting all that historical stuff in front of me".

"Not me. Some times, a couple of times, I had sex the same day as I fought", he added.

Cormier understands this as well as anyone, and as Lewis has continued to talk himself down and brush off his chances at victory, Cormier has spoken up.

"It's where all the famous fighters put down their mark in the sport", he said. I'm going to be this and I'm going to be that.' And the vast majority of the guys who do say those things, they never change.

It's been a insane last couple of months for you.

"Fame is fleeting and my opponents get their moments", Cormier said. The location is also offering Lewis free chicken for life regardless of whether he wins or loses, according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani. That would likely earn Cormier the biggest payday, and why not cash-out on your way out of the fight game? I have nothing to prove against Daniel Cormier.

American Cormier, 39, challenged former champion Lesnar to a fight following his title win at UFC 226.

Saturday night, he's fighting to become the baddest man on the planet.
