Derrick Lewis will face Aleksei Oleinik, in the main event of UFC Vegas 6, and will enter the arena on August 8, with a chance to make a significant record.
Derrick Lewis and Aleksei Oleinik will headline the second fight night event of August. The two veteran fighters will draw daggers at each other, and are expected to create a spectacle to watch. However, the stakes in the fight are not high, since it is not a championship bout, neither it is for the top contendership of the heavyweight division. Yet, this match can be registered in the history books, as Derrick Lewis, a.k.a. The Black Beast, will carry an opportunity alongside to become the man with the most knockouts in the coveted history of Heavyweight division. At the moment, Lewis is tied with Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos at 10, but at UFC Vegas 6, he will possess a chance to go one up.
