UFC 230 weigh-in results: Daniel Cormier, Derrick Lewis hit marks, two fighters miss weight

On Saturday night, the UFC will touch down in New York City’s hallowed Madison Square Garden for a third time. This time around, the promotion’s offering to the people of The Big Apple is UFC 230, a card that, though nearly unrecognizable from its original version, still packs quite a punch.

The card will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between decorated champion Daniel Cormier and fan favorite contender Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis. Although this fight was thrown together on short-notice, the stakes have become incredibly high.

The co-main event, meanwhile, will see former UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman battle former Strikeforce middleweight champ Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in a matchup fans have been drooling over for years. Weidman was originally expected to rematch Luke Rockhold on this card, while Jacare was expected to battle former two-division World Series of Fighting champ David Branch. When Rockhold withdrew from the card with an injury, however, Jacare was elevated to this co-main event scrap with Weidman, while Branch received a new opponent in Jared Cannonier.

Other highlights of the main card include a middleweight bout between Israel Adesanya and Derek Brunson, and a middleweight bout between Jack Marshman and Karl Roberson.
