UFC 230 Tinder Predictions: Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis
We are back with another instalment of Tinder Predictions ahead of UFC 230 coming up on Saturday, November 3rd at Madison Square Garden in New York.
If you aren’t already familiar with this series then buckle in, you’re in for a ride. Ahead of UFC PPV events, we take to the popular dating app, Tinder, to see what predictions users have on the headlining fight. We keep a tally of who everyone is picking to win the fight and display screenshots of the most interesting comments, “hot takes”, and pick-up lines from our findings.
Naturally, people begin to bring up Conor McGregor so let’s just get these ones out of the way from the start. All mentions of him with spelling errors are mandatory for this series. Sinned for the misspelling… 50 push-ups for penance.
“Non”… “Connor”… Sinned and sentenced to 40 push-ups for penance.
This guy says MacGregor is his favourite fighter. Not only is the spelling an embarrassment but the sentence structure in the second-to-last message is so atrocious we have to sin him for this. 30 burpees for penance.
We often see a lot of people making errors in the spelling of Conor McGregor’s name. This guy took it one step further and messed up Esha’s name. Definitely not a good start to striking up a conversation with a girl.
Some people wanted to discuss UFC 229 rather than UFC 230. The event happened 26 days ago, get over it and stay on topic.
Team Daniel “DC” Cormier!
This conversation starter gets a sin too… 10 push-ups for penance. At least he answered the question.
This submission comes from Izi, who made a bio for me saying I like tacos. There is something about the combo of tacos and ice cream that makes me uneasy.
I’m not even going to comment on this one, I’m just going to sin it. 100 push-ups for penance.
This is probably one of the top five golden nuggets of this article. We have an exclusive story on Daniel Cormier! No idea about it’s validity, but hilarious nonetheless.
“I think I know that Cormier dude”… enough said.
Have to sin the conversation starter. 50 squats for penance. Much respect to the fact that this lad knows about the Ben Askren trade. Have to sin him again for the misspelling his name though. 30 push-ups for penance.
Not sure what a “wily veteran” is, but sin it I shall. Also sinning the pick-up line. He can do a seven minute wall sit for penance.
Since stats are not everything in this sport, I have to sin this. 15 sit-ups for penance.
“UFC and chill” we shall not.
Sinned for the starter. 45 sit-ups for penance.
Every single message from this person gets a sin. So lets do some math… five messages, five sins, 15 push-ups per sin = 75 push-ups for penance.
Okay, this is downright cool. What are the odds we found someone going to New York this weekend, not for UFC 230 but for Glory Kickboxing! This gets no sins! Shoutout to Michael.
Team Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis!
Daniel Cormier win rate = 91-ish %
Derrick Lewis win rate = 80-ish %
Sin this I shall… Let’s do 91+80=171… 171 burpees, squats, and sit-ups.
I’ve heard the introduction so often I’m just going to sin it. 20 push-ups for penance.
Derrick Lewis via brute force.
We fully respect this man’s honesty. No sins for him.
Sinned for “quick googling”… Sentenced to 30 sit-ups.
Cormier via knockout in the 3rd round. You heard it here first.
“Yah why?” while my bio says “Let’s talk fights, swipe right if you’re watching UFC 230”
Sinned for hating Daniel Cormier to the point where one becomes delusional and says DC is not a good wrestler. Sentenced to 100 minutes on the mat with Daniel Cormier.
Sinned for the wrong use of “too”. Sentenced to 30 burpees.
Sinned for the incorrect nickname of Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis. Sentenced to 50 push-ups.
Some people are just not here for UFC 230…
These submissions are all a bonus, not all necessarily related to Saturday’s card but we included them for good measure!
Sinned for not liking one single fighter on the UFC 230 card. Sentenced to 30 burpees. Apparently thet met Nate?
Not even sinned for calling the main event garbage, sinned lightly for the reasoning behind it. Sentenced to 20 push-ups.
No sins here! Just a “hot take” and I respect it!
Sinned and sentenced to holding plank position for an entire soccer game.
Derrick Lewis battling Daniel Cormier plus the rising temperature of his balls isn’t worth $60 to this guy.
All I want is the answer to the question.
Much like my time on Tinder, I was over it.
With that, we have come to the conclusion of the UFC 230 chapter in the Tinder Prediction series. In total, we matched with 262 profiles and received 143 votes.
Daniel Cormier – 74
Derrick Lewis – 69
