Lewis (25-7 MMA, 16-5 UFC) delivered a “Knockout of the Year” contender in the heavyweight main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. He connected with a perfect uppercut that laid Blaydes (14-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC) out cold in the second round.
“The Black Beast” now is tied for the UFC’s all-time knockout record, but the 12th, which came against Blaydes, may have been the most important of all.
Lewis made it very clear post-fight that he wants to share the octagon with Alistair Overeem (47-19 MMA, 12-8 UFC) next, but does that make the most sense for him going forward?
