Cormier will defend his heavy title against Derrick Lewis in the early hours of Sunday morning in the main case of UFC 230, which takes place in Madison Square Garden.
The former UFC heavyweight king, Lesnar, is expected to be present at MSG and may well get into Octagon as he did after Cormier’s pressured KO victory over Stipe Miocic earlier this year.
A melee followed almost after Lesnar pushed the UFC’s second simultaneous two-weight world champion, though it was quickly separated from the pair of safety.
Cormier has no problem with Lesnar coming into the cage this weekend but warned the WWE star not to put his hands on him.
“This time I will advise him to stay out of the octagon” “DC” said. “For the last time he drove me over the cage and I hate the visual.”
“I hate it’s the visual that will be shown in the structure of our struggle.”
“This time I will tense my heels into the carpet and I will be ready to push him or hit him on my head.”
The UFC’s last pay-per-view event, which saw Cormier’s teammate Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully defended his lightweight title against Conor McGregor, was injured by a mass foul at the end of the match.
So you would assume it would not be a wise move for Cormier to beat Lesnar on the top of the head. “
Cormier is well aware of the unfair fracases that took place at T-Mobile Arena, as he was in the middle of, but insists that any action he takes against Lesnar will not lead to ruckus.
” No, that’s okay, “said Cormier when asked if he thought it would be a good idea to drive Lesnar.
