Lewis-Volkov Planned For UFC 229
Following what many are calling the worst heavyweight fight in UFC heavyweight history, Derrick Lewis will get a chance to redeem himself against Alexander Volkov.
First reported by ESPN, the fight would serve as the co-main event for UFC 229, which has Conor McGregor’s return to the UFC facing lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Lewis is looking to come back from his criticized decision win against Francis Ngannou at UFC 226, where both fighters would hit 31 total strikes in a 15 minute contest.
