They would see seen and be like, 'I know you saw it.' And I was like, 'No I didn't.' But they were like, 'Dude, screengrab.

UFC president Dana White announced the attendance and gate figures stemming from UFC 230: Cormier vs. Lewis during the event's post-fight press conference on Saturday.

Cormier will now reportedly fight former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in 2019. "It's history and Daniel Cormier is one of the best of all-time".

His win in NY could set up a bout with Brock Lesnar, who has not competed inside the octagon for two years.

After a second round submission of Derrick Lewis at last night's UFC 230, heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier immediately called out the new Universal champion Brock Lesnar.

Cormier says he wants to retire on his 40th birthday on 20 March next year, but before he does, he hopes to face Lesnar in a dream bout that would earn him the biggest payday of his sporting career.

Cormier defended his title with a clinical win over Lewis. White said that Cormier has a promising future as a broadcaster.

It was a surprising pairing, but one that carried a ton of intrigue, as Lewis has shown that he's never out of a fight and Cormier's competitive instincts propelled him into the cage with the risky knockout artist when many others would have opted to remain on the sidelines until 2019. He secured top control on Lewis where he landed short shots to Lewis. But, as happened in the first round, Cormier grabbed a single leg and swept Lewis to his back. He celebrated with his family in the cage as Lewis trudged out, still in his trunks unlike the last fight that made him a quick star. Lewis turned his back to Cormier and he secured his neck and forced a tap via a rear-naked choke.

To open the pay-per-view portion of the card, New Zealand's Israel Adesanya put on a clinical performance in knocking out Derek Brunson in the first round.
