Two division UFC champion Daniel Cormier is defending the heavyweight crown against Derrick Lewis this Saturday Night at UFC 230.
“Khabib has a number of options,” Cormier said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “Tony is great. I don’t dislike Tony Ferguson at all. I think he’s a phenomenal fighter, this dude’s a beast. I think he’s the tougher matchup for Khabib but I say do Khabib vs. Georges St-Pierre. That’s the fight. It’s big.”
Cormier doesn’t care if the lightweight strap is defended or not, its just a fight that he wants to see.
“Matchup wise, Tony, tough, GSP, super tough; but the history and the matchup of a GSP fight, at 165. . .” Cormier said. “It doesn’t have to be for a belt. This is a big enough fight that it doesn’t have to be for a title. Make it a catchweight fight. When you’ve got names like Khabib and Georges, it can be for anything. Let those guys fight.”
UFC 230 takes place on Saturday, November 3 from Madison Square Garden in new York, New York with Daniel Cormier and Derrick Lewis headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
