Cormier won the Heavyweight championship by knocking out Stipe Miocic in the first round at UFC 226. It was expected that he might be out of action until 2019 because of a hand injury. On the other hand, the competitor Lewis enters UFC 230 by knocking out Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 at third-round TKO, where he won the fight with almost no time on the clock.
As a co-main event fight, a returning Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier were set to square off in a Lightweight division matchup. Due to Poirier’s undisclosed injury while training forced him to pull out from UFC 230. At this time, reports state that there will not be any replacement and hence the card is canceled as well.
In addition to that bad news, there is another disappointment for the fans and UFC followers as the co-main event between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman is also terminated. This fight was set to finally have their long-awaited rematch on the UFC 230 card, but multiple injuries to Rockhold have put a stop to those plans
However, Weidman will not be off the card. As of now, the co-main event has been set as: Weidman will be squaring off with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in a middleweight bout. Souza was originally scheduled to face David Branch.
Below, you can have a look at the entire UFC 230 as it’s shaped out to this point.
