What have the fighters said

Cormier: "It’s going to be tougher than the general public may believe. It made me understand him knocking out Alexander Volkov wasn’t the exception – it was his expectation because he has fought from the very pits of hell, and he scraped his way back up to who he is today.

"I’m going to try to rip Derrick Lewis apart. There are levels to this fight game. I’ve said that before. I’ve competed at a level above most people for a long time".

Lewis: "So when they offered me the money that they offered me, then it was like the reset button. ‘OK, yeah, I could do this.’ Then it’s guaranteed, so there’s no sweat off my back.

"It’s gonna be a real good fight. I’m going in there and try to end it real quick. If I lose, that’s fine. I still get the money."
