For the uninitiated, Cormier had broken his arm during the Heavyweight title fight against Stipe Miocic at UFC 226. In his appearance on the MMA Hour last day, Cormier revealed that he has not completely recovered from the injury. However, the double champion went on to add that he is ready to fight Derrick Lewis despite the issue.

You can see the statement from Cormier below.

Cormier, who holds both the Light Heavyweight Championship and the Heavyweight championship in UFC, currently boasts a professional record of 21-1 to his name. The only loss in his career came against Jon Jones back in 2015.

After this loss to Jones, Cormier went on to defeat names like Anthony Johnson (2), Anderson Silva, Alexander Gustafsson, Volkan Oezdemir, and finally Stipe Miocic.

Derrick Lewis, meanwhile, holds a record of 21-5 to his name. He is coming off a last-minute knockout win against Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 and had defeated Francis Ngannou prior to this.

Do you think Cormier’s arm will be an issue at the pay-per-view? Let us know in the comments below.
