With just a couple weeks to go until UFC 230, the UFC has released the official poster for the pay-per-view card which will take place on November 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The poster features Daniel Cormier as a two-weight world champion taking center of the poster while challenger Derrick Lewis appears in the middle displayed through a X.
Also featured on the poster is the co-main event between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman which is a rematch from their UFC 194 fight where Rockhold defeated Weidman to become the middleweight champion back in 2016.
