Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The double champ made history once again.

Daniel Cormier defended his heavyweight belt with ease on Saturday night at UFC 230, dispatching Derrick Lewis with a second-round submission to become the first fighter in UFC history to defend titles in two different divisions. The flawless performance capped off an action-packed card in Madison Square Garden that also saw Ronaldo Souza score a wild, come-from-behind win over Chris Weidman, Jared Cannonier announce his presence in the middleweight division with a thunderous upset over David Branch, and Israel Adesanya cement his place among the 185-pound elite with a spectacular victory over Derek Brunson.

Check out reaction from the pros to UFC 230’s main card below.
