The event takes place this Saturday live from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In the video above, Cormier puts in a training session for his bout with Lewis, while the challenger does the same in hopes of landing a knockout punch.
Weidman trains at his home base of Serra BJJ with former UFC champion and long-time coach Matt Serra. We also see Lewis take in an NBA game featuring the Houston Rockets and family time for Cormier.
- Chatri Sityodtong, a top executive with ONE Championship, has heard the talk of Ben Askren having troubles once he arrives in the UFC. And Sityodtong doesn't believe them one bit.
Askren, a former champion with ONE and Bellator, is unbeaten in his career. He was a standout wrestler at the University of Missouri and has made several bold proclamations via Twitter.
Most people have no clue how extraordinary @Benaskren truly is. I have personally seen him in training on multiple occasions demolish the best of the best athletes from ONE and UFC; and he made it look easy. I won't name any names, but they were big names.— Chatri Sityodtong (@YODCHATRI) October 30, 2018
I believe @Benaskren is going to run through the best UFC welterweights like a hot knife in butter.— Chatri Sityodtong (@YODCHATRI) October 30, 2018
