Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis
Derrick Lewis is coming back from submission lost against UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and now he is definitely looking for a different outcome in this fight. He is really the beast. He can struggle all the fight, look fatigued or hurt but “The Black Beast” still can knock opponents out cold. It showed his impressive 3rd round knockout win Alexander Volkov back in UFC 229. Before his loss to the UFC Heavyweight Champion, he was on the 9-1 running streak and Lewis will try to start that momentum once again. Lewis keeps things simple, he likes to spend time eating shots or laying on his back in the fight. However, in those seconds when he throws hard punches Derrick Lewis is dangerous to anyone in the world.
Junior dos Santos
Junior dos Santos is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, he is a very experienced guy who been in the deep waters and still found the way to win. Now dos Santos fighting for fun, he is in the league on his own. Brazilian legend won last three of his four fights and looking forward to the 4th win. Junior dos Santos is an elite striker, has real power in his hands, has knockout power, very good at out-striking opponents. Also Brazilian has a great ground game, good cardio. He is very well coached. Junior dos Santos is a nice guy outside the Octagon, but when the cage door closes he turns into a killer.
These fighters never met each other in the octagon.
