Despite a massive amount of last-minute changes to the card, the UFC’s third trip to New York’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday still presents a juicy main event as Daniel Cormier defends his heavyweight championship against Derrick Lewis.
Lewis enters a surprising headlining role at UFC 232 just 28 days’ removed from a thrilling comeback stoppage of Alexander Volkov. Cormier, meanwhile, was willing to risk a large payday against former champion Brock Lesnar in order to accept a shot at fighting at “The World’s Most Famous Arena.”
In addition to the heavyweight title tilt that’s expected to bring plenty of action, the pay-per-view main card features four compelling middleweight matches with an opportunity for one of the winners to potentially enter the on-deck circle for Robert Whittaker’s 185-pound title. Former champion Chris Weidman faces veteran Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in the co-main event and rising prospect Israel Adesanya takes on Derek Brunson.
