The UFC’s return to Madison Square Garden in two weeks had to suffer through some lineup bumps and bruises, but came out solid on the other side.
UFC 230 takes place Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. And after some shuffling of the main event, the official poster for the event is out.
Lewis just 11 days ago had a come-from-behind knockout win over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229. He has won nine of his past 10 fights. Cormier became a two-division champ at UFC 226 in July when he knocked out Stipe Miocic to win the heavyweight belt.
The co-main event is a middleweight rematch between former champions Luke Rockhold (16-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) and Chris Weidman (14-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC). Rockhold beat Weidman at UFC 194 in December 2015 to win the title, but lost it in his first defense to Michael Bisping.
