Dos Santos Stops Lewis At UFC Wichita

Junior dos Santos has officially marked his return to contendership in UFC’s heavyweight division with a resounding victory over Derrick Lewis.

Dos Santos scored a second-round TKO victory over Lewis in the main event of UFC Wichita. The fight was short but it ended up being a barnburner as the two heavyweight contenders threw vicious strikes from the start of the fight.

Both men got hit hard and were hurt during the first round. Dos Santos managed to catch Lewis and landa flurry of punches that stopped Lewis in his tracks and gave dos Santos another win, putting him one step closer towards challenging for the UFC heavyweight title he once held, now currently being held by Daniel Cormier.

Lewis is now on a two-fight losing streak, the longest of his pro MMA career, as he lost to Cormier late last year with the UFC heavyweight title on the line.
