5 Things You Should Know About Derrick Lewis



Few fighters inspire trepidation quite like Derrick Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 265-pound mountain of a man whose punches often carry force comparable to a Mack Truck.


Lewis has fixed his sights on one of the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight division’s big fish, as he will face Junior dos Santos in the UFC Fight Night 146 main event on Saturday at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. The onetime Legacy Fighting Championship titleholder finds himself on the rebound following a submission loss to Daniel Cormier in November, the setback halting his run of three consecutive victories. Since joining the UFC roster in 2014, Lewis has compiled a 12-4 record that includes wins over former champions from Bellator MMA (Alexander Volkov), M-1 Global (Marcin Tybura), and the International Fight League (Roy Nelson).
