CORMIER ON LESNAR, UFC 200, AND MORE...
By Brett Okamoto, ESPN Staff Writer
 
Each week, ESPN.com writer and MMA Live Extra analyst Brett Okamoto provides his take on the hottest topics in the world of mixed martial arts.

This week, Okamoto squares off with UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier to debate the latest news and trends. Cormier (17-1) has won two straight fights since he lost to Jon Jones in January 2015. Cormier and Jones will meet again in the main event of UFC 200 in Las Vegas on July 9.
